Happening Now: Solidarity Demonstration in Peirce

A growing group of students are gathering in the Peirce atrium to demonstrate solidarity with fellow student activists at Mizzou, Yale, Claremont McKenna and others. They welcome any and all students to join in with their peaceful demonstration.

      I think your condescending comment speaks for itself. I’m proud of our students who willingly make their voices heard and take some risks.

  1. Solidarity from afar, honorable students. I would also make a plea that no one engage the anonymous troll above me. let this be the only post that does so. keep up the great work!

  2. Exactly what we talked about in Intro Psych today – learning about ones values and beliefs and making commitments – private and public – to them. <3 Kenyon students. My support is with you from Mt. Vernon.

  3. Anonymous is right. I suggest you all listen a great deal more to your Economics professors and a little less in your “Intro to Psych” class. You’ll be better prepared for life after Kenyon, and far better prepared to pay for it should your children wish to go there. Let’s also not forget that free speech includes all…not just college students and professors. There might even be a few conservatives on Kenyon’s spectacular campus. You might even consider actually listening to a few of them from time to time.

Just some food for thought — Is telling your professor you won’t call her Dr. because she’s not smart because she’s black and no blacks are smart and she only got her degree by affirmative action okay? is calling a fellow faculty member a nigger something to support as free speech?
