Apply to Be a SRPA Supporter

As Sexual Respect Peer Alliance (SRPA) Supporters, we are committed to providing unbiased and unwavering support for those impacted by sexual misconduct by being their trusted peers. Our position as fellow students on this campus allows us to actively initiate and engage in conversations about sexual respect in order to promote a greater culture of consent, awareness, and support, three things that are critical to college campuses. As part of our training, we are familiar with the Title IX process and the student resources that Kenyon offers. Additionally, all SRPA Supporters actively engage in our own training throughout the year so that we can constantly improve the ways in which we communicate, support, and empower.

So, here’s the deal. I was supposed to do a whole Thanksgiving thing the week before break, but then we had Kenyon’s Darkest Day, and so that plan went down the drain pretty quick. I haven’t thought of anything new, though, so. We’re just going with Thanksgiving, I guess? Okay, here’s how to make a Thanksgiving turkey, I hope:

Sorting Famous Literary Figures into Kenyon Frats

Kenyon is a literary as shit school and we love that here. Kenyon loves books, and the people who did books. Authors, you know? And poets and such. And there’s got to be a way to categorize all of these bad boys, and since no one really wants to think about, say, which Romantics match up with which First Year dorms (Coleridge would live in Gund, don’t @ me) we’re going to do frats, so buckle in.

The Kenyon Thrill Interviews: Old Bob of Bob’s Desserts

It was posed to me, by Old Bob himself, as we sat down for a one-on-one interview, and it made it clear to me within the first five minutes of our talk that Bob knows he’s doing a lot more for this school and its students than just handing out sweet treats. Bob has been manning the dessert station in Peirce since mid-January of 2018 (far shorter than it might seem) and he’s quickly cultivated wonderful, friendly relationships with many Kenyon students. Whether or not you’re someone who frequents the desserts, you know about Old Bob.

But we at the Thrill knew there was more to Bob than a kind face and some s’mores bars, and wanted to get an inside look at who he is, and how he stays so upbeat and friendly all the time.
