Meet a DA: Lanise Beavers ’18
April 7, 2016
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 Lanise Beavers from Cleveland, Ohio.
If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you eat?
I don’t think I could commit to one food for the rest of my life, but if I HAD to choose, I would probably choose chicken (or not at all).
What’s the last good book you’ve read?
I read a book called The Wind Done Gone by Alice Randall last semester for Sociology of Gender and it was possibly one of the best books I’ve read. It’s an alternative version of Gone with the Wind.
Why do you love Kenyon?
I love Kenyon because I love the friends I’ve made, simply because they’re amazing, talented, hilarious, and bomb AF.
Where’s your favorite place to nap on campus?
Oh! My favorite place to nap on campus is in the Black Student Union’s (BSU) lounge! The smaller couch kind of sucks you in and it’s like sleeping on a leathery cloud.
What was the last movie you watched?
The last movie I watched was the Flintstones, watching cartoons while I study or write papers keeps me focused.
Why did you become a DA?
I became a DA because I wanted to be a safe space for students to talk about the discriminatory problems they may face on campus and let them know that they aren’t alone and that there are resources for them.
