EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Gambier, OH

Pros: Small, close-knit community where Kenyon College is located...

Cons: Night life can be limited, if you aren't interested in campus parties and the one bar in Gambier.

This is a good place to attend Kenyon College! Gambier is a great environment to learn without too many distractions, but Columbus is only an hour away.

General info: The Middle Ground, Gambier Grill (aka the Cove), and the Deli are the most popular hang-outs...
