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 Em Green, a sophomore from Virginia.

Cookie pie or giant cookie? Definitely giant cookie, UNLESS the cookie pie is slightly under-baked (as it sometimes is), in which case, cookie pie all the way. Whichever more closely resembles warm raw cookie dough.

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had (excluding cookie pie and/or giant cookie)? Tough question. Honestly probably any meal at any good sushi restaurant. Fave food hands down. Sushi is one of the few exceptions to my vegetarianism.

What’s the last good book you read? Hah. I don’t really make time for fun reading during the semester, but the last book I read for class was Equus, for Rhodes’ Religion in its Global Context. Great class, great guy; would def recommend. The last good book I read for fun (and actually finished) was Middlesex.

Why do you love your hometown? My cats are there. My house is there. Not much else.

What is your favorite place to nap on campus? Third floor Olin couches!!

What movie have you watched most frequently and why? I don’t actually know. Probably some Miyazaki movie. I wanna say Totoro.

Why did you become an SMA? As someone who has experienced sexual misconduct and as a friend to people who have as well, I wanted to be available as someone my friends (any obv other students as well) could go to for help. I know that some people aren’t sure how or when to report instances of sexual misconduct, or might be unsure of what the college’s procedures are in dealing with reports of sexual misconduct. I think it’s important that people know that they have complete confidentiality with SMAs, and even if they choose to report an incident of sexual misconduct, they can choose to remain anonymous. There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding the whole system, and I and the other SMAs are here to help clear any of that up! Talking about sexual misconduct to strangers can be scary, but there are so many of us that there’s a good chance someone you know is an SMA, and we’re here to listen.
