Q&A with Kyle


Favorite class and professor?

Political Philosophy with Dr. Jennifer Benson. Not only did we engage in difficult, inequality topics that face the world today, we learned invaluable skills on how to approach philosophical concepts and facilitate the techniques and advantages of a thoughtful, insightful and reflective approach to everyday societal problems. Highly educational and Dr. Benson is wonderful! 

Favorite Chestertown hangout?

Without a doubt, the college waterfront in Wilmer Park. I love leaving campus for an afternoon with my fiancée, Julia, drive down for a picnic on a beautiful, sunny day. Along the way, I like to stop downtown and get the popular WAC student drink at Play It Again Sam, (an Alaskan), and enjoy the breathtaking waterfront view. It is certainly a great getaway spot and stress reliever! 

Any personal life philosophy that you adhere to?

I have many personal life philosophies that I accede to in this day and age. I suppose the highest philosophy being said: “Be too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.”

Favorite thing to order at the “Cove”?

I would have to go with one of Martha’s Kitchen specialty secret sandwiches known as The Tipson. Essentially, it is this freshly hand-battered sandwich, crispy chicken breast on toasted Texas Toast with melted Cheddar Cheese, Barbeque Sauce, and Ranch Dressing. YUM!!
