’Twas the night before Sendoff, when all through the Hill…

As The Thrill’s profoundly unofficial nudity correspondent, I bring you this semi-breaking report — at approximately 10:36 p.m., I encountered a flock of streakers running through the new loop of the NCAs. I have also seen several tweets and status updates alleging some students running around naked in Olin, including one possibly wearing a rubber horse mask.

Is Kenyon’s clothed (ahem) streak finally over? Your move, Wesleyan.

10 o’clock list: Members of Your Kenyon Family

April 24, 2014

Yeah… (via

Kenyon is our little home away from home. During these four years, we spend more time overall on campus than we do at home anyways. The people you meet and interact with on a daily basis fill the role of your family. If you think about it in general, it makes sense — we’re dysfunctional and full of angst, yet deep down, we love each other in a weird, warm-fuzzy kind of way. More specifically, many of your Kenyon peers can be assigned specific family roles based on their typical interactions with you. See if your friends fall into any of these potential categories!

For Kenyon, the discussion on economic inequality didn’t end after CSAD. Just today former President S. Georgia Nugent went on NPR’s “Morning Edition” for a segment called “When Money Trumps Need In College Admissions.” The 7 1/2-minute interview is worth a full listen, but check out highlights after the jump.

Get at us, Sleigh Bells (via

It’s that time of year again, and I know the question that’s on all of your minds — who am I going to be this Sendoff? Well, worry no more, because the luminaries over at Buzzfeed have inspired us to put together our very own lil’ quiz to put your minds at ease before the blessed event. (Actually, if this quiz were truly Buzzfeed-inspired, it would be called “How Sendoff Are You?” and feature a deluge of Toddlers & Tiaras .gif’s/photosets of dogs wearing sunglasses and swimming in kiddie pools. Which, don’t get me wrong, is fucking hilarious. Anyway. Sendoff.)

 1. What’s your go-to Sendoff accessory of choice?

  • A — An entire 30-rack. To start with. SENDOFF 2k14 WOOOOO LEGGOOOOOOOO.
  • B — An intricately braided flower crown that I ordered off Etsy but tell everyone I hand-crafted.
  • C — My carefully curated stack of Sendoff polaroids from the last three years OH GOD WHY IS IT ALL ENDING, IT’S TOO SOON, WHY, GOD, WHY?
  • D — A case full of bottled water, a headache and a disapproving frown.
  • E — That light looks really bright. Is it pulsing? Am I pulsing? I’m gonna go touch it really quick. I may or may not be back.
