Ubong the Connector

How a biology major came to Gambier, Ohio, from Uyo, Nigeria, to engage with the world.

Meet Ubong, a biology major and anthropology minor from Uyo, Nigeria, who came to Gambier, Ohio, to engage with the world and explore the meaning of community. "People have to learn how to care about other people," says Ubong, who aspires to a career in public health. "We have to deliberately think about a culture of community, a culture of being there for one another, a culture of family. That's exactly what Kenyon is."
