Gambier is Talking About...

Locked Residence Halls. Kenyon's dormitories are now locked twenty-four hours a day. The policy was introduced in the winter semester, in part because of a triple homicide that took place in Knox County in the fall. (See "Prison Sentence.") Under the previous policy, residence halls were locked between midnight and 7:00 a.m.

Public Office. Adam Gilson, Kenyon's print design director, is running for an at-large seat on the Mount Vernon City Council. Gilson, a Democrat, has lived in Mount Vernon since 2004. Democrat Sam Barone '72 is running for a ward seat.

Prison Sentence. Matthew Hoffman was sentenced to life in prison for murdering three people in Knox County and raping and kidnaping a thirteen-year-old girl. The tragic story made national headlines.

Power Outage. Classes were canceled in February when an ice storm knocked out power at the College for about thirteen hours. DeliciousFacebook FacebookStumbleUpon StumbleUponDigg Diggreddit reddit
