Meet a DA: Katie Connell ’18
The Thrill spotlights a Discrimination Advisor regularly to raise awareness about the resources available to students on campus in relation to issues of discrimination. They have weekly Office Hours in the lower Peirce Marriot Room from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help. Today, we’re featuring Katie Connell ’18 from Cincinnati, OH.
If you could eat one food for the rest of your life what would you eat?
I’d probably eat a rice/broccoli combo. That or sharp white cheddar cheese on toast.
What’s the last good book you’ve read?
Belfast Diaries gave a really fascinating perspective of an American journalist living in a Catholic ghetto during the years right before the Good Friday Agreement was signed.
Why do you love Kenyon?
I love Kenyon ‘cuz “Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name, and they’re always you came…” (Cheers theme song)
What’s your favorite place to nap on campus?
definitely 3rd Floor Ascension leather couches.
What was the last movie you watched?
I watched the first five minutes of the Scooby Doo movie last weekend.
Why did you become a DA?
I became a DA because I found that many of the most interesting and challenging discussions and events I attended as a freshman were sponsored by the DAs. The DAs are a group of engaged students from a ton of different backgrounds and disciplines that share a common desire to not only facilitate conversation on issues relevant to underrepresented groups on campus, but also to take action through partnerships with other bodies on campus to see campus culture change for the better.
