Having come to the realization that a professional baseball career was not in the cards, and that rugby is too painful to pursue full-time, Noble embraced a career in admissions and is proud to represent Kenyon, his alma mater.
A member of the Class of 1997, Noble majored in English, minored in religion, and completed the concentration in the Integrated Program in Humane Studies. He forever values the mentors and friends he met at Kenyon, and believes that every student of English literature should have the opportunity to study with Professor Adele Davidson '75. After graduation, Noble spent several years in New York City learning the ropes on Wall Street. He returned to Gambier in 2001 and joined the admissions staff in 2006.
Noble enjoys cooking, feeding the local fauna (aka "gardening"), discovering as-yet-unknown bocce courses hidden throughout the village of Gambier, attending Kenyon athletic events, and all things fly fishing. (While he continues to hold out dreams of becoming a professional fly-fisherman, he has settled for the occasional evening of casting on the beautiful Kokosing.) He has also been known to play golf, though not well. Catch-22 and A Confederacy of Dunces top the list of his favorite books, and he highly recommends streaming the Seattle radio station KEXP ("where the music matters") all day long. Noble is plagued by over-utilization of the comma, and is torn in regards to the usage of the Oxford comma.
