Meet an SMA: Katherine Tallman ’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 Katherine Tallman ’15, a senior English major from Long Meadow, Massachusetts. 


Cookie pie or giant cookie? 
Cookie pie, just a gut instinct.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had (excluding cookie pie and/or giant cookie)? 
There’s this place near my house that has a great Chicken Marsala with homemade pasta. It’s always a nice thing to welcome me home.
What’s the last good book you read?
The Executioner’s Song by Norman Mailer
Why do you love your hometown? 
Long Meadow is a beautiful, and admittedly quiet, town. It’s a wonderful place to grow up; I have a lot of fond, nostalgic memories from childhood.
What is your favorite place to nap on campus?
My bed.
What movie have you watched most frequently?
Boogie Nights.
Why did you become an SMA? 
I think that opening up a dialogue about the right and wrong ways to approach sexual misconduct is incredibly important. I wanted to be part of that conversation and offer myself as a resource for the topic.
