Kenyon in Quotes

“Robert A. Oden, Jr. Professor of Biology Joan Slonczewski taught me to think critically and gave me opportunities that snowballed into a lifetime of small achievements."

Kenyon in Quotes

"Without ever saying anything overtly to our political science class, Professor Emerita of Political Science Pam Jensen somehow managed to encourage intellectual rigor outside the class, and respectful engagement with a wide range of ideas within it. She became a model for me of what a scholar, instructor, mentor and guide could, and should, be."

Recent Class Notes

Kelsey G. Jordan and her husband moved to the Cleveland/Akron area this summer after spending the last five years near Philadelphia. “I am excited to be returning to Ohio all these years later,” Kelsey notes, “and would love the opportunity to catch up with fellow classmates in the area. I’ve run a small video production company for the past seven years. Will take some time to rebuild in the Midwest, so I welcome any and all connections!”


Molly (Willow) Vogel, Westerville, Ohio writes: “Last winter we helped my folks find a place down the road from us to split time between here and my hometown of Portland, Oregon. My kids (9 and 7) enjoy having Grammy and Pop Pop nearby and cheering at soccer games (so many soccer games). I’m in my fourth year as advancement communications director at Kenyon and recently had the immense pleasure of working with Murray Horwitz ’70 and Chris Toft ’89 as emergency emcees at Reunion Weekend. Sorry I missed nearly all the rest of you! Next year? I’m also mostly excited to have been asked to serve as one of the chairs of Kenyon’s Bicentennial in 2024. I’d love to hear your ideas for how we should celebrate this milestone!”


Sarah H. Booth, Dobbs Ferry, New York, and her husband, Armando Inarritu, welcomed a son, Sebastian Inarritu Booth, born on March 22, 2022, in New York City.
