      • “a.k.a. Klonopin themed housing.”

        The “Thrill Staff” is really grasping for straws on this one. What exactly are you insinuating? It’s beyond me why The Thrill feels the need to make distasteful remarks about fellow Kenyon students. And for what purpose? Comments like this just make The Thrill a glorified, Kenyon-specific gossip publication. Kudos.

  1. Editorial integrity? How about people show some personal integrity and stop making bullshit “coffee houses”. I hope every French press in that house breaks.

    • It’s a Creative Writing house. They went through the same approval process that all themed houses had to go through last spring, presented a strong application and were approved. It’s the first week of school, you can’t call them out on “bullshit” when you haven’t even given them the opportunity to run programs, etc. at the house.

  2. it’s bullshit but dont get upset that their bullshit is better than your bullshit. props for gaming the system.

  3. Guys let’s all make amends to one another and show our new first year friends a good time at Milks tonight. Seriously guys, tarp party and tons and tons of beer at Milks tonight. Milks is throwing down. First years, come hang out with us at Milks, bring your entire hall. Starts at 930 so be there by ten!

  4. Where the hell is Cape Side? What are LARPers? And what percent of the population uses those terms?
