Here are some eyebrow-raising moments from the history of coeducation at Kenyon.
“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."
"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."
In honor of the 25th anniversary of coeducation, the Spring 1995 Alumni Bulletin explored the lives of Kenyon's women pioneers.
To mark the 40th anniversary of coeducation, the Fall 2013 Alumni Bulletin recalled how coeducation came about — from the fiscal crisis, to the clamor, to the uneven welcome on the Hill.

Eric J. Raicovich, New York City, was bummed to miss out on reunion shenanigans last year. “Looking forward to the next go-round whenever we can all be together again on the Hill. Little else to report. No wedding, no kids. Life is good.” Eric is finishing his first year at Facebook and is “thankful for ’05 Kenyonites in the city, including Phoebe L. Plagens, Claire T. McGinnis, Ashley W. Fitch, Allison B. Lebar, Philip A. Cooke, Meghan D. Rohan, Elizabeth Aragona Haines, Catherine ‘Cecil’ Howell (when we can track her down) and Rebecca L. Frank and Brian M. Porter ’02. Look forward to continuing our annual traditions no matter what curveballs the world throws at us.”
“I am currently living her best SoCal life trekking through a psychology doctoral internship. After finally making my way out of the closet — gosh, it was dismal in there! — I am blissfully engaged to the love of my life, Lindsay. Proud fur baby moms to three pups and a kitty. Weekends are typically spent beach hopping and soaking in those Cali vibes, protesting racial inequality, making gemstone bracelets, seeking out live music and learning to roller skate. Catch us skating down that sparkling coastline and escaping the unfathomable mess that is 2020.”

Morgan E. Peele bought a tiny house in the historical section of Philadelphia. Called a “trinity” or “bandbox” home in Philly lingo, “It’s a narrow, three-story row home originally designed to serve as living quarters for servants or working-class folks between the 18th and 19th century,” she informs. “I’m in love with the narrow, twisty stairs — although it’s nearly impossible to get furniture to the third floor!”
