Better late than never, right n00bz?
Hold on to your hats everyone, because we’re back with another edition of Kenyon Doppelgangers, the ongoing series of lookalikes here at Kenyon brought to you by the Thrill. You may know our two lads featured here by many another name: Steve-O, Steve, Captain America; Hansel, Von Schnitzel or perhaps, most infamously, Hot Dan. But there’s more to them than their beautiful flaxen hair and deep blue eyes, so please allow me to reintroduce Chris Stevens and Daniel Scherding in this week’s Kenyon Doppelgangers: Blond Ambition Edition.
You just came back from abroad. We get it. You’re a different person. You had an amazing experience. You expanded your horizons. You really grew as a human because now you know that you’re allergic to octopus. None of those testimonies will help me figure out whether I should hook up with the pretentious albeit hot local from my clase de filosofia, eat borscht before or after drinking vodka, or try to raise a stray Mexican cat on the DL.
Griffin Burrough ’18 presents some of the nitty gritty from his fall semester abroad in Copenhagen–notably his trip to Russia. Learn from his mistakes: either to repeat or avoid them.
You’re bound to be asked how you enjoyed yourself over the 4 weeks away from Kamp. Here are some possible responses!
- Good! You?
- It was alright!
- It ended the same way it began, really. Picture me, buttass naked rolling around a king sized bed at a La Quinta Inn and Suites. Who are you, again? It doesn’t matter. Come, let me show you the secrets of the universe.
- It was chill!
The Thrill regularly spotlights a Sexual Misconduct Advisor to raise awareness about the resources available to survivors of sexual assault. Remember, the SMAs are subordinate to the Counseling Center, so anything you tell them is kept confidential. They also have an anonymous hotline you can call if you need assistance: 740-358-1544. Today, we’re featuring Lauren Castelbaum! Stay safe, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
I really like this bowl of Captain Crunch™ that I’m eating currently?
Dogs or cats?
Very much so dogs. Cats don’t like me. I’m too loud.
What’s the last great movie you saw?
I saw La La Land over break, and even though it seems to be debated, I loved it.
How do you feel about parades?
Love them on television, hate them in person because large crowds of people scare me.
Favorite quirk of Kenyon?
I work in the library and I’m always confused about where Olin begins and Chalmer ends.
What’s the best class you’ve taken at Kenyon so far?
The Director with Jim Dennen. It was a subject I was super interested in and we all got very close as a class!
Why did you become an SMA?
Sexual assault has affected my life personally and being an SMA is a way for me to try and make sure it doesn’t affect other people.
Tonight at 7:30, gender and queer theorist Jack Halberstam will be giving a talk in the Community Foundation Theater in Gund Gallery! The lecture’s called “Trans* Bodies, Hapticality and Popular Culture.” It’s always interesting to learn about queer theory and gender, so if you have time, you should go!
