10 o’clock list: Best School Supplies in the Bookstore
Everyone’s favorite part of heading back to school is buying new school supplies. Though I haven’t recently engaged in this consumerist tradition (I reuse all of my folders and notebooks and hope my professors think I’m being eco-friendly and not sloppy), I can still name a good new school supply when I see one. Below is a listing of the best school supplies the Kenyon College Bookstore has to offer. Also, I’m using “school supplies” loosely here.
1. Triplus Fineliners. You know, the colored pens that all of the hyper-organized girls in your Intro Psych class use to write down their homework assignments. But you can use them to draw on your arms.
2. Kenyon College Seal Folders. These folders manage to be both gilded and tasteful, which is quite a feat. Just ask the Italians.
3. Sculpey!!!! The Bookstore has so many nice colors to mold and bake drug paraphernalia with. [Ed. The Thrill does not endorse the use of illicit drugs or guarantee that Sculpey is toxin free.]
4. Metallic Sharpies. If you are taking Religion in Its Global Context, or really any class in the religious studies department, you will need these to complete your final creative project. Nothing says “sacred” like smelly metallics.
5. This Kenyon College adhesive white board. Seniors, buy this and make a ceiling to-do list. The brilliant placement will ensure that your Comps aren’t just metaphorically looming over your heads while you sleep, but also actually looming over your heads while you sleep.
