Notes from Ransom Hall

  • As we celebrate the intentional community built at Kenyon, we should not lose sight of the power of the unintentional, casual community generated here.

    By Sean Decatur
  • The best way we can honor Dr. King is to choose community over chaos — to find the courage and will to overcome procrastination and stand with those who are sacrificing for justice.

    By Sean Decatur
  • The current crisis separates us physically, but we’ve built relationships in and outside of the classroom that can and will withstand this.
