DSC_0138_2

Every week, The Thrill features a member of a student-support organization to bring awareness about the various resources available to the student body on campus. This week, we’re featuring English major Gabrielle Alziari ‘15 from Pound Ridge, New York. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.

If you want to speak to a PC, they have Office Hours in the new Health and Counseling Center. Drop by and talk to a PC every Sunday-Thursday, 7-9 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays 5:30-7:30 p.m. Or call their 24/7 hotline at 740-398-3806.

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?

A tough question! I would have to say the Indian food in India. It is amazing.

What’s the last good book you read?

Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

Tell us about your hometown.

My hometown is Pound Ridge, New York, which is about an hour away from Manhattan. Other than Pound Ridge, I’ve also lived in Vienna, Dubai, Copenhagen, and Oxford. I would have to say my favorite place in the world is Oxford. It is my soul mate city. Being in an environment where so many talented authors had lived and created before me was deeply moving and thought-provoking. The architecture is also superb!

What’s your favorite place to nap on campus?

My bed. Hahah.

What movie have you watched most frequently?

The Notebook… :)

Why did you become a PC?

I became a PC because I love listening to people and I really enjoy helping others. We all have so much to learn from each other. I have benefited a lot from this role, particularly through being a part of a group of such supportive, passionate individuals who really want to make a positive mark on this community. I’ve also learned a lot from people I have counseled, and my respect and admiration for my fellow Kenyonites has deepened tremendously. I feel so gratified to be a part of this community. No one should ever feel alone at Kenyon and that is why the PCs are here – because we are all in this crazy inspiring and challenging environment together, and it’s not always easy. Sometimes it helps to remember that we are all in this together.
