Kenyon Doppelgangers: A Tale of Two Cranes

Get ready, because we’re back again with the next long-awaited edition of Kenyon Doppelgangers, the classic Thrill feature where we profile two students with uncanny similarities for your viewing pleasure. I’m sure you’ve all seen our first student, Krane, ’22, hanging around Rosse and sometimes swinging by the Gund Gallery, but our second subject is a bit of a mystery.

Kenyon Doppelgängers: Lucas Kreuzer ’20, and Sam Burke ’20


Sam Burke ’20 and Lucas Kreuzer ’20. Two young men, two different birthdays, two different hometowns, one shared face. Yesterday, I sat down with Sam and Lucas, doppelgängers and friends who found each other at the start of the school year. We discussed their origin story and what they do and don’t have in common.

Kenyon Doppelgängers: Paige Ballard ‘18 and Stephanie Penix ‘16

Though they’re both Ohio natives, doppelgängers Paige Ballard ‘18 and Stephanie Penix ‘16 are about as different as they could possibly be. Ballard is a psychology and film double major who spends her time writing for Her Campus Kenyon and participating in both Kenyon Filmmakers and the Psych Club. Penix, on the other hand, studies molecular biology, participates in the STEM mentoring program and is an active member of BE:, a CCO ministry here at Kenyon. Though the duo aren’t close, they share a creative, energetic spirit. Continue reading

Charlie Woolsey ’19 and Sean Deryck ’18

By popular demand, the Thrill proudly presents a long-awaited edition of Kenyon Doppelgangers. Kenyon is known for bringing together similarly minded people, but it also brings together similarly faced people- scary similar in the case of Sean Deryck ’18 and Charlie Woolsey ’19. I approached Sean in Peirce and mistakenly called him Charlie right away. He graciously corrected me, saying this happens a lot. When Charlie appeared at his side, I immediately understood why.

This week The Thrill presents a special ~*AbrOAd*~ edition of Kenyon Doppelgängers.

No. You aren’t seeing double. You’re seeing Molly Wyrsch ’17 and Hannah Farr ’19. Although Wyrsch is abroad with the Kenyon-Exeter program this semester, friends of these Doppelgängers have had their fair share of mix ups. Wyrsch was most recently alerted of her likeness to Hannah in a text from a friend, “who thought [Wyrsch] was back on campus first semester.” Snapchats from confused friends have also flooded her phone.

Doppelgangers: Milad Momeni ’15 and Nick Massari ’18


The Thrill has many long-standing traditions, like poignant 10 0′ Clock Lists, an overall witty voice, and, of course, recognizing campus’ lookalikes. Among all the lords and ladies few doppelgangers are more notorious than Milad Momeni ’15 and Nick Massari ’18. These two look so much alike that even after thoroughly stalking the pair on Facebook I still found it impossible to guess their identities upon first meeting them at the Wiggleground.

Kenyon Doppelgangers: EMAIL EDITION

Is this email for Lauren Michael or Lauren Michael? Or maybe it’s for Madeline Thompson…but which one? The world may never know.

So you’ve all seen our Kenyon Doppelgangers with students on campus who LOOK alike, but what about people who have literally the same exact name. Weirdly enough on our teeny tiny campus, we have TWO sets of people with the same name, Madeleine (’15)/Madi (’16) Thompson, and Lauren Elizabeth/Elisabeth Michael (both ’17).
