‘Tis the ranking season

By Sean Decatur on September 16, 2013

The college rankings address a deeper issue, one that colleges themselves have ignored for too long.  Families want to make informed decisions about their college choices, and while the “fit” for determining a college is about much more than the statistics, we’d be naïve to suggest that the numbers don’t matter at all.  Families are very interested in some measure that can suggest the educational outcomes for students.  The After Kenyon pages on the new website are a first start to taking control over our own story, providing useful information to families to assess the value and impact of a Kenyon education.
