Meet an SMA: Bailey Luke ’17

The Thrill spotlights a Sexual Misconduct Advisor regularly to raise awareness about the resources available to survivors 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 Bailey Luke, a sophomore from Denver, Colorado.


Cookie pie or giant cookie? Absolutely a giant cookie!

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had? The best meal I’ve ever had was lasagna and bread pudding that I ate at a hostel in the lake district in England after more than 12 hours of hiking in the rain. Even though it probably wasn’t the most technically delicious thing I’ve ever had, it was certainly the most incredible meal of my life.

What’s the last good book you read? The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov

Why do you love your hometown? I love that in a day you could browse for books at a local bookstore, go to a contemporary art museum, go on a hike in the mountains with friends, do yoga in a park, and go to dinner at an amazing restaurant. There’s really something for everyone and every mood.

What’s your favorite place to nap on campus? My favorite napping spot on campus is definitely on the grass in front of Rosse Hall when the weather is nice enough to be outside.

What movie have you watched most frequently? The Royal Tenenbaums. It’s both my and my brother’s favorite movie, so pretty much any time we’re together we end up watching it.

Why did you become an SMA? I became an SMA because everyone deserves to know that they are valued and heard in all circumstances. I think the SMA program really shows Kenyon students this, and that they have a support system through every condition. To me, this program really exemplifies the best parts of Kenyon because it strives to make everyone feel safe on this campus, integral to the community, and supported by everyone around them.
