Meet an SMA: Jennifer Gerken

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 Jennifer Gerken, a Gambier community member from Pittsburgh.


Cookie pie or giant cookie? Giant cookie. Always.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had (excluding cookie pie and/or giant cookie)? Almost any variety of Mac ‘n’ Cheese.
What’s the last good book you read?  A Storm of Swords. I’m right in the middle of nerdy book binge.
Why do you love your hometown? My hometown is Pittsburgh. No explanation is needed.
What is your favorite place to nap on campus? My house.
What movie have you watched most frequently and why? Die Hard. Because it wouldn’t feel like Christmas without it.
Why did you become an SMA? As a member of the Gambier community but not a student at Kenyon, I felt it would be a benefit to the campus to offer myself as a resource to students who may be uncomfortable contacting their peers concerning such sensitive and personal matters.
