From Cromwell Cottage, President Sean Decatur reflects on a week that has been very different from what any of us expected, and looks ahead to reconnecting with a Kenyon community that is miles apart, but never more together.

“Once we’re beyond the point of dealing in logistics, dealing in the questions about where your stuff is and how you’re going to do classes, we also need to talk about how we’re going to sustain a sense of community and connection when we are being pulled physically apart. I totally think that’s possible — in part because I think this is what our Kenyon education has equipped us for.”
