Meet an SMA: Kit Fluharty

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. Today, we’re featuring Lauren Castelbaum! Stay safe, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.


What’s the best meal you’ve ever had? 

I really like this bowl of Captain Crunch™ that I’m eating currently?

Dogs or cats? 

Very much so dogs. Cats don’t like me. I’m too loud.

What’s the last great movie you saw? 

I saw La La Land over break, and even though it seems to be debated, I loved it.

How do you feel about parades? 

Love them on television, hate them in person because large crowds of people scare me.

Favorite quirk of Kenyon? 

I work in the library and I’m always confused about where Olin begins and Chalmer ends.

What’s the best class you’ve taken at Kenyon so far? 

The Director with Jim Dennen. It was a subject I was super interested in and we all got very close as a class!

Why did you become an SMA? 

Sexual assault has affected my life personally and being an SMA is a way for me to try and make sure it doesn’t affect other people.
