Meet an SMA: Emily Sussman ’15

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 Emily Sussman, a senior art history major from New York, NY/London, UK.



Cookie pie or giant cookie?
Tough choice! When I was a freshman, they had large slices of actual cookie pie, rather than the smaller individual ones we have now, and those were my favorite of ALL TIME. Even though they’re no longer the same, I would have to still give my allegiance to the Cookie pie. (However if the giant cookie in question were from Wiggle Ground I’d still be pretty excited.)

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
A few summers ago my mom and I shared a salmon steak we cooked together, wine, and made bruschetta/ salad using tomatoes, lettuce and other herbs from our garden. It was great.

What’s the last good book you read?
Americanah by Chimamanda Adiche and Yes, Please by Amy Poehler.

Why do you love your hometown?
New York is great because you can be totally anonymous if you want on some days, and open and out there on others. I love it for the Highline, hot dog stands, crazy characters, always finding an alternative to Starbucks, and for walks across Central Park.

What’s your favorite place to nap on campus?

I’ve actually never fallen asleep anywhere on campus… But– there are a few comfy reading rooms in the Library, and I’ve joked about setting up a Cot in the Gund Gallery before.

What movie have you watched most frequently?
Clueless. It’s Emma, it’s now an ingrained part of mid-90’s pop culture, it’s social satire and hysterical.

Why did you become an SMA?
Everyone deserves to have good sex. Sexual misconduct is more common than people think especially on college campuses. I became an SMA so I could help the Kenyon Community and survivors feel safe, and empowered.
