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."

“Life for Doner “Deke” K. Melone ’84 and me changed dramatically a year ago. Last fall we seized the opportunity to purchase my family’s beautiful lake home just outside Duluth, Minnesota. Deke works remotely full time, and I work part time doing the books for my church. We are thoroughly enjoying lake life.”
