Kenyon in Quotes

"There is little in our history that is beyond dispute, there is much about which good and wise people have disagreed. Put rather differently, our past has witnessed historical revisions, and this process will and should continue." —Former President Robert A. Oden Jr.

Kenyon in Quotes

"Will Kenyon still exist as a collection of buildings and people on an Ohio hilltop twenty-five, fifty, or one hundred years from now? The future, of course, has a way of surprising us, but I believe it will. The campus ideal, introduced here by Philander Chase almost one hundred seventy-five years ago, will prevail." —Tom Stamp '73

“I finally escaped Florida after four years of medical school and started psychiatry residency at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque! It’s been a wild four months. I’ve jumped between rotations at an in-patient psych unit, the emergency room, pediatric urgent care and, most recently, the psychiatric emergency room. Never a dull day out here — for better and for worse some-times. It was wonderful catching up with folks at the Reunion. The timing was just about perfect for me — I’d just graduated from medical school, said goodbye to dozens of folks I love, and prepared for another cross-country move. I had also been waiting to return to Kenyon to truly grieve Avery Campos. Being with so many of you was healing in a way that is difficult to succinctly describe.”

Robert W. “Winston” Sale, Washington, D.C., donated a kidney on Sept. 21. “My friend Rob was suffering end-stage renal disease caused by a hereditary kidney condition. The trans-plant was a success, and Rob will be able to return to a normal life without dialysis in a few months. Statistically speaking, kidney donors live longer than the average population, and I expect to live a normal, healthy life with my remaining kidney. If you or anyone you know is thinking about kidney donation, please reach out.”


“Approaching my eighth year in Denver, having the wonderful privilege of working for Cochlear Americas in our professional marketing space. When I’m not busy helping craft messaging or supporting new product launches, I can be found enjoying life on my fabulous patio in my new home, watching my sister get married in the San Juan Islands, hiking in the Tetons or seeking out my next adventure abroad.”
