Do it tonight: SMA Dialogue at the Horn

Hoagies included!

In light of the recent discussion surrounding sexual misconduct at Kenyon, the Sexual Misconduct Advisors will be hosting an open dialogue tonight at the Horn. Discrimination Advisors and Beer and Sex Advisors will also be in attendance, and food will be provided (pizza and subs). We post a lot of “Do it Tonights” here on the Thrill, but this is one you really shouldn’t miss — come to the Horn between 5:30 and 7 p.m. to talk, listen and learn more about what we can all do to make our school a stronger, safer place.

  • What: Open discussion hosted by the SMAs
  • Where: The Horn Gallery
  • When: Wednesday, February 13 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. (but there’s no obligation to stay the whole time)
