Weekend Drink: Gambier’s Hottest Club Is…

April 18, 2015

It’s going to be hot and smelly, folks. Via

Well, when hosting an all-campus party, the Delt Lodge suddenly becomes its own, very humid and sweaty biosphere, so temperature-wise, this probably is Gambier’s hottest club. Though, that the Phi Kapp party in Old K will be any less sweaty is Delta Tau Doubtful. So go to both parties. Maybe someone will Phi Kapp-ture your heart. Here’s a drink to help you cool off: Read more…

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?

“I’m gonna pull the abroad card because it’s true. I went to a Middle Eastern-based restaurant called Sarkis in Buenos Aires. You go with a group and order small portions of a lot of different things. That included lamb kabobs, hummus, pita, etc. topped off with an ice cream sundae with rum whiskey caramel nuts and two bottles of wine. So… Food coma! I don’t think I ate again for three days.” Read more…

10 o’clock list: 5 Emotions of Josh Radnor

April 16, 2015


Josh Radnor ’96 is perhaps the most recognizable Kenyon alum currently alive. Acting in the hit television program How I Met Your Mother, Radnor brought life to main character Ted Mosby in a role many critics remarked upon.

As a testament to his greatness, we’ve decided to showcase the wide range of emotions Mr. Radnor possesses in his acting arsenal.

He’s got such an infectious smile. I smiled back right at him. Read more…

Behind gated off parts of Gund Ballroom, four-person NCA groups scrambled to find four more. Who will be pulled in? Friends? Enemies? Lovers?

Tensions are high as the last few NCAs are going. The four person NCAs are taken, gone for good. Voices are rising. I have seen at least one person crying. Those who were told to come at 8:30 are getting bored, and the Internet connections are going in and out. Only two questions are on these seniors’ minds:

  1. Where will they live (if they survive this ordeal)? And…
  2. When will they finish their homework?

April 16, 2015


Ah, Facebook. You love Facebook. You love its infinite benevolence, its plethora of oh-so-important drivel that you waste–ahem, spend–hours upon hours scrolling up, down, left, right, diagonal looking at. It is a universe unto itself, one where you can, say, stare at your crush’s profile pictures, or look through your friends’ photos from 8th grade.

Facebook can go to hell. You’re a grownup now.

Let me tell you all about LinkedIn. Facebook for grownups.

You know what you stalk? Your rivals’ past jobs. Your really attractive bosses. And you know you’re on fire when you see that people are looking at your profile (yup, that’s a feature. if that were on Facebook, things would get a whole lot creepier).

But seriously, LinkedIn is a very necessary evil in the professional world (right behind small talk and a physically crippling handshake), and sometimes it can be a little daunting. Here are some tips to make your LinkedIn page the most stalkable (and employable) on the Internet: Read more…
