Why did you become a DA?

It (whatever it may be) can get rough sometimes. Being a DA gives me a title under which I feel empowered to help people process the ‘rough’ and move towards progress.

You have to lick the floor of one of the campus buildings. Which building do you choose to touch tongues with ?

Somewhere in the Chemistry Dept. I’ll either get kick-ass superpowers or die quick. Win win.

Choose one: Bookstore, Market, or Registrar?

Market. You can get Oreos for less than $6.

You can only listen to one song for the rest of your life. What is it?

The acoustic version of So Long Forever by Palace. Either that or Missy Elliott’s Work It. I’m unstable.

Where’s your go-to campus couch to nap on? 

…Nap?

You’re stuck in an elevator for twelve hours with a professor of your choosing. Who is it? 

My best friend Professor Michelle Mood. Don’t ask.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Because the Sheriff wasn’t looking.

Thanks for speaking with us Chloe!

What’s your best Kenyon memory?

My best Kenyon memory (so far) is surprisingly probably one from orientation week. A few friends and I went down to the BFEC, but then ended the night sitting on the sidewalk between Horvitz and the graveyard. We talked about a lot of silly things, but I mostly remember laughing so incredibly hard. I was nervous since it was only one of the first few nights of college, but we ended up having a really good time. It’s fun to think about how much has happened since then, especially since some of them are still my closest friends on campus.

 

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

Teleportation. Not 100% sure if that counts as a superpower, but definitely teleportation.

 

You have to go out to dinner with one of the Kenyon sculptures/statues. Which one do you choose?

I think I’ll go with the science quad sculpture. I’d be interested in what it has to say…

 

Graham Gund is the anonymous donor of the seventy-five million dollar donation conspiracy: believer or nah?

Maybe???

 

Forks, spoons, or knives?

Forks. But then I guess you can’t eat soup or yogurt.

 

Who’s the first Kenyon professor you recruit to help you battle an army of the undead?

Balinda in the dance department. Or really any of the professors in that department. They’re all fierce and amazing women.

 

Why did you become a DA?

I grew up in Miami, and completely underestimated what the transition would be like, moving from a big city to a rural campus as a person of color. Kenyon can be really homogenous at times, which is hard, and I wanted to be a DA so that I could be there for other people who are facing this same transition and working through what that feels like. I also think that, because Kenyon is so much of the same, it’s important to hold events that are centered on the perspectives of minorities and people of color. I wanted to get involved in planning these sorts of events, which is something that the DAs do!

Many thanks to Isa for chatting with us!

If you could eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be and why?

Salad, because you can put whatever you want in it, that way you can get all the nutrients you need in one food. Continue reading

If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you eat?

Pasta. I used to eat a box of mac and cheese for breakfast in Middle School.

What’s the last good book you’ve read?

This might be a copout because I had to read it for class last semester, but I liked Terror in the Mind of God by Mark Juergensmeyer. As its subtitle suggests, the book is about the rise of global religious violence (violence performed in the name of religion might be a better way of putting it). Juergensmeyer does not focus on one religion alone; rather, he discusses a diverse range of instances of religious violence, each of which were interesting in their own way

What’d you think about during your walk to class this morning?

That I should be walking to class instead of driving.

Why do you love Kenyon?

Because almost anybody can find at least a few incredible friends here, even if the love affair isn’t with Kenyon itself.

Where’s your favorite place to nap on campus?

3rd floor Olin in the chair in the far corner of the oversize books section.

Why did you become a DA?

I decided I wanted to become a DA after my Freshman Orientation– the DA assigned to my hall was a white male athlete. This was significant to me for several reasons. First, because anybody can be a DA! Just as we shouldn’t assume that DAs have to be “visually diverse” (that’s really silly), we shouldn’t assume that white male athletes aren’t interested in what we do as DAs. My other point is that aspects of diversity and identity go beyond their visual/physical manifestations. Diversity comes in many forms, and conversations of diversity and identity concern everyone. Especially as a Freshman, I appreciated that the DAs understood this.
