Meet an SMA: Gabe Kohrman ’17

Gabe Kohrman

The Thrill regularly spotlights a Sexual Misconduct Advisor 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 Gabe Kohrman ’17 , a political science major from Washington D.C. 

Cats or dogs?

Oh, dogs. I have a Bernese Mountain dog named Milo and he’s amazing. He’s 115 pounds.

What is the best meal you’ve ever had?

That’s a really hard question. I’ll say panko rice.

What is your favorite thing about your hometown?

It’s got this fun, interesting culture beyond the perceived political world that’s really fun to be around.

Why do you love Kenyon?

I think because it’s a tiny school in the middle of nowhere, you get students and people who really want to come here. It’s great to have so many enthusiastic professors and students trying to make the most of place in the middle of nowhere Ohio.

What is the best class you’ve taken at Kenyon?

Black Intellectuals or Rhetoric and Antiquity. Both made a huge impression on me.

What is your favorite spot to nap on campus?

My roommate’s bed.

What good book have you read most recently?

Old Filth by Jane Gardam. It’s unreal.

Why did you become an SMA?

I grew up in a household where the topic of consent and positive sexual experiences was talked about normally and something our parents really wanted us to be conscious of. I really like the Kenyon community and I want to help however possible, and I feel that in this capacity I’m able to do that by being an SMA.
