My husband and I have watched with interest as our two children, both Kenyon students, have chosen different professors, different friends, different paths down which “the Kenyon experience” is taking them.
Just as important as studying and working are the non-paying, non-“required” activities.
It never even crossed my mind that the sight of me in a big, purple, furry coat on campus might turn my daughter four shades of purple.
For our first Family Weekend, I had envisioned cozy mother/daughter dinners, meeting her new friends, maybe sitting in on a class, or snuggling together under a blanket at the football game.
Journalist Sally Kalson, parent of a 2012 Kenyon graduate, passed away last weekend. She wrote about her daughter’s graduation for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which reprinted it as one of her signature columns.
