Meet a PC: Adam Brill


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 Adam Brill ’17. 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.

If apes hadn’t become the dominant species on earth, what do you think would have?

Surely, aliens.

Tell us about your hometown.

I’m from Washington DC. Yes, I am REALLY from DC (but I just barely live within the line). DC’s a beautiful city. It’s very manageable and easy to navigate. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve really grown to appreciate the city a lot.

What song have you been jamming to recently?

I’ve been jamming to many many things recently. Specifically, I’ve been listening to a lot of jazz and electronic music. I’ve also been listening to a lot of Tim Buckley, who’s an absolutely brilliant singer-songwriter from the 60’s and 70’s. Also, The Life of Pablo by Kanye West. I could go on forever about all the great music out there, but I’ll cap it at that.

If you were a punctuation mark, what would you be?

Probably the æ symbol. Just cuz.

What do you dip a chicken nugget (or vegetarian/vegan alternative) in?

Practically probably ketchup. But really ranch. Because ranch is hilarious.

If you were a rapper, what would your name be?

Someone in high school once told me my rapper name should be “B-Real” (get it? it sounds like “Brill” ha. ha. ha.). However, right now, after a conversation I just had with someone, I’d probably name it “Combative Seduction.”

Why did you become a PC?

I became a PC because when I was a freshman, I was paired with a really wonderful PC. He really helped me adjust to Kenyon and was an extremely close friend of mine (he’s since graduated). I joined because I hope to be that person for someone else. I also want to do my part in making this campus a more healthy, friendly, and open-minded place.

  1. Dearest Brill,

    I am very sorry to report that æ, pronounced ash, is not a punctuation mark. It is, in fact, a grapheme.

    Very truly yours,


    • Jake,

      I scrolled down to say the very selfsame thing. Glad we’re married.


      P.S. Brill, I’m still curious about your favorite punctuation mark.

      • Dearest Timmy,

        I appreciate that us “great minds” are “think[ing] alike,” as they say. I am similarly glad that we are married.



        Post scriptum– Brill, like Timmy, I also remain curious about what punctuation mark you might be.
