Exeter is a great place. It will become an unforgettable experience and part of Exeter will always remain with you if you choose to come here. There are wonderful people, excellent courses, sports, and arts, and as long as you want to help Exeter, Exeter will want to help you. New students, be prepared. Exeter may be safe and fun, but it is also challenging and rigorous and will test you, but it’s all for your benefit. Remember that Exeter has chosen you, that admissions thought you were intelligent enough and tough enough to survive here. Before you really say yes or no, think about how you would feel at a place like this, and whether or not you really want this.

On a lighter note, if you haven’t visited the campus, I recommend coming, and if you can’t, then take a virtual tour on our website. Our classrooms are pretty unique with our Harkness style of learning and teaching and the faculty are amazing guides to help you grow overall. Personally, I think dorm life is the best thing on campus. Classes are difficult and my life is always busy, but coming home to Cilley Hall: a building filled with brothers and friends who want to help, is an amazing feeling.

About Kevin

Hey applicants! My name is Kevin Zhen and my hometown is Miami, FL. I’m a four year senior living in Cilley Hall. Back home, I have a sister, two great parents, and a golden retriever back home named Cooper. Since I came to Exeter, I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of a variety of clubs and activities. Currently, I am the President of the Senior Class and the head of two different clubs (ITXC, Exeter's breakdance club, a history club that competes in an annual national competition), as well as the Humor Editor of the Exonian, the school newspaper. In my free time, I also enjoy playing piano and am planning to perform a one-hour senior recital in the spring of this year. I love exploring town and playing C-ball (a sport that combines volleyball with tennis and soccer that only my dorm plays) with my boys.
