Quintessential Kenyon: Student Life, Uncut

Jake Fishbein

Class of 2013
Major  —  History
Hometown  —  Santa Fe, NM

I’m Jake and I’m a senior history major, a captain of the Track and Field Team, a story teller on my own food/travel blog The Food Travels of a Coffee Snob, and a die hard Red Sox Fan. You can usually find me watching the Sopranos with my apartmentmates Jackson and Andrew, eating awesome breakfasts at The Gambier Deli, sitting in Peirce’s Great Hall for extensive periods of time, or at the computers on the second floor of the library typing away at multiple research papers with a huge stack of books piled around me. When I'm not at Kenyon I enjoy watching baseball, playing whiffleball, reading Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels, and of course eating tasty meals surrounded by awesome family and friends.
