AT LONG LAST IT’S THANKSGIVING BREAK! Readers, friends, lovers, if you’re anything like me, you’re sitting downstairs in Peirce kind of sort of holding it together-ish. But you know what’s great? A national holiday intended to celebrate the pilgrims landing on Plymouth Rock and actually celebrating my ability to eat an entire pumpkin pie!
You know you need some great music for the road trip that gets you there. Happy break, over-worked, sleep-deprived friends!
“Chicago” by Sufjan Stevens
More Road Trip songs after the jump!
After reaching out to some Kenyon students who have previously stayed on campus over Thanksgiving break, I realized their silence was speaking louder than their words ever could; this place must get wild and they’re all sworn to secrecy. I’ve heard that Peirce does breakfast in bed, middle path gets salted, and D-Cat and Joe Biden build every resident their own snowman. In addition to these very true facts, there are also some other important things you should know if you’re here over break.
I know a decent number of you, and a decent number of you know me; I’m that self-obsessed chick who can’t seem to stop talking about farts. We’re familiar to an extent, right? Can we agree on that? Cool.
Now that we’ve established and defined our relationship, I’m going to give you some super friendly advice.
Today, rather than present one article, we would like to present a collection of short, but interesting, snippets from the Collegian throughout the years. Included below are news briefs ranging in topic from a visit by General Westmoreland to a student injured while cleaning a gun.
WESTMORELAND TO SPEAK
General William Westmoreland will speak in Rosse Hall on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 7:30pm. General Westmoreland was the Supreme Commander of the U.S. Forces during the Vietnam War. More recently, he was in the public eye when he sued CBS for libel concerning an hour news segment which accused him of lying to former President Lyndon Johnson. The lecture is co-sponsored by Faculty and Student Lectureships.
