Preparing for Kenyon: People You Should Know



Your first few days at Kenyon will be filled with introductions to all sorts of people. Since we know how overwhelming that can be, we have highlighted a few College employees that we think are important to know during Orientation. Each of these people plays a key role in ensuring your transition to college life goes as smoothly as possible. (That is not to say that anyone not mentioned doesn’t play a role, just that these were the people we thought of while our brains were on vacation mode. We take blogging very seriously, as you can tell.)

Katie Connell 18′ reliving her glory days

Your hobbies! Your excitement!!!!! Inevitably, these all backfire. Some forget they ever made a video, others delete them, and some actively deny their existence. We’re interested to seek out those people who surrendered themselves to their class Facebook page in hopes of prematurely finding some new friends.
