Every week, The Thrill features a member of a student-support organization to bring awareness about the various resources available to the student body on campus. This week, we’re featuring Rose Bialer ’20, a Peer Counselor from San Francisco, CA. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.

Ms. Bialer, please answer the following essential question: Mashed, friend, or baked…what is your favorite version of potato?

French fries! But honestly, all potato forms are great.

Thoughts on corduroys?

I have nothing but good things to say about corduroys.

Which building on campus best describes you?
…Not Olin-Chalmers.

If you were cheese, what type of cheese who you be?

If I were a cheese, I think I would be brie. So rich and creamy…It’s a crowd pleaser.

In your professional PC opinion, what is the “best” emotion?

Wow, that’s a tough one. I’ll go with…excitement!

Why did you become a PC?

I became a PC because I wanted to get to know other Kenyon students that I might not have otherwise had the opportunity to talk to and form relationships with. Also, I think that people feel like they are supposed to love Kenyon and be happy here all the time, but that’s not always going to be the case. As a PC, I want to make students feel like they are not alone, and [I want to] be someone who will always listen. If you ever want to talk, please reach out to me or any of the other wonderful PCs!

Peer Counselors work in collaboration with the Kenyon College Health and Counseling Center to “promote mental health and well-being within the student body…open pathways to existing resources, develop student-led discussion groups, and empower the student body through mental health education.” If you want to speak to a PC, they have office hours in the Health and Counseling Center. Drop by and talk to a PC every Sunday-Thursday from 7-9 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays between 5:30-7:30 p.m. You can also call their 24/7 hotline at 740-485-5784 (Note: the PC 24-Hour Hotline number has changed in recent weeks! Update your contacts! Tell your friends! Shout it from rooftops!).

1. Cats or Dogs?

Cats. I love dogs, but I grew up with cats so I’m biased. Every time I see a cat I just have this visceral reaction where I’m like, “I must love you.” Continue reading

Cats or Dogs?
 Dogs. Dogs hands down. I don’t trust cats. I read somewhere that “weaker” people like dogs because they provide constant, consistent love, and I believe it, lol. I thrive on constant emotional validation, and cats are too particular. I know whenever I’m home, my dogs will give me kisses and cuddles no matter how tired or grumpy they are. I don’t have time to wait for a cat to warm up to me.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
Best meal I’ve ever eaten, dang this is a hard one. I really, really love eating. Part of the reason why I love Los Angeles, my hometown, is because there is such a large variety of food. I think I have to go with my favorite restaurants in LA, one a Japanese place and one an Italian place. There’s this whole in a wall Japanese place by my house with the best udon and vegetable tempura that I’ve ever had (mostly because I dont eat fish and I keep kosher). I go there all the time with my best friends from home. The other place is an Italian place in Beverly Hills, which sounds extra but I ate there the first time for my Friday night Bat Mitzvah service. I loved it mostly because my grandma got super drunk and told me how proud she was of me. They also have really good chicken marsala.

When was the last time you laughed really hard?

These are hard questions! I’m very loud and I laugh a lot. I think the time I laugh the most is when I’m on the phone with my mom. We have a very specific humor, and I can twist the most mundane situations into funny events to tell her. So I’ll talk to her about something that’s bothering me, and in explaining it to her it’ll turn into something so hysterical that we’ll both be cracking up.
