Look, I’m not saying I’ve never done any of these things, or that there’s anything wrong with them (well, maybe #5), but nights out at Kenyon are a distinct experience that’s hard to describe to those outside the bubble. I’ve tried to capture the true gems of Kenyon nightlife, but it was hard to narrow this list down. In no particular order: The Top 10 Weirdest Things About Kenyon Nightlife.
1. Ladies’ Night at the Cove. On a Thursday. $1 jello shots. Why am I getting an email about this and how did the Cove get my email?
2. Taking pee breaks in Farr or Peirce on the way to/from a party.
3. Using the Old Kenyon laundry rooms as the coat room and then finding someone’s soggy shirt in your jacket the next day.
4. Wednesdays. Seriously. Since when is that a thing?
5. Muploading pictures of drunk people with cats. Animal abuse?
6. Chilling in the Mather breezeway in pajamas. Guaranteed sight every weekend.
7. Weaver Cottage. Why are we having parties in a place that has a kitchen?
8. Going to parties with townies. That’s totally a thing.
9. Bexley Block Party. Fun? Yes. Takes place in a parking lot? Also yes.
10. Gund Commons parties. It’s weird ’cause there’s a computer lab in the other room. And a ping pong table.
Runner-Up: The table of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as party favors in Old Kenyon (and who could forget the single-slice Kraft cheese sandwiches?).
