We’re picking back up on the feature wherein we spotlight an SMA each Friday to raise awareness about the resources available to victims of sexual assault. Remember, the SMAs are subordinate to the Counseling Center, so anything you tell them is kept confidential. They also have an anonymous hotline you can call if you need assistance: 740-358-1544. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.
Today, we’re featuring Meg Armstrong, a junior from Virginia.
Cookie pie or giant cookie? Giant cookie for sure, espeically one with M&Ms and especially one from the Cove.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had (excluding cookie pie and/or giant cookie)? The best meal I have ever had was one in Venice that was angel hair pasta, olive oil, and grilled vegetables. It didn’t hurt that this was a roof top resturaunt.
What’s the last good book you read? One of my favorite books is by Paul Britton called The Jigsaw Man about Britian’s first forensic psychologist.
Why do you love your hometown? I love my hometown because of its location, it is 5 miles outside of Washington D.C. and it has two 24 hour drive thru McDonalds.
What’s the best class you’ve taken at Kenyon? The best class ive taken at Kenyon is Professor Krieg’s Psychology in Context class. It was a seminar-style class combined with spending 50 hours over the course of the semester volunteering at a Head Start location in Knox County. Truly the best class/experience I have ever had. Professor Krieg is awesome!
Why did you become an SMA? I became an SMA because there were a couple girls on the lacrosse team (I play lacrosse) that spoke very highly of the organization and I decided i wanted to be a part of it. In addition, I transferred my sophomore year to Kenyon from another small liberal arts college and at my previous college, there were various incidents where a student would have benefited from the use of an SMA. Kenyon has done so much for me, I wanted to be able to give something back.
