Kenyon is Running Shuttles So You Don’t Get Frostbite

Starting tonight, the College is running shuttles to help people avoid the mind-numbing cold that has descended on our fair hamlet. Here are the stops:

The shuttle service will include Kenyon’s 12-passenger vans and
minivans as well as Knox Area Transit vehicles. Vans will operate from
5-8 p.m., boarding at the Craft Center barn, Gund Hall parking lot,
KAC front circle, McBride Hall circle, and the Caples/Mather halls
circle and delivering riders to Peirce Hall. Students leaving Peirce
can request North Campus destinations.

The shuttle schedule is here. Also, the library will close early tonight and the KAC will open late tomorrow. Kenyon’s full release is below, after the jump.

Due to the extreme cold, the College will provide an on-campus shuttle
service for students Monday evening and through Tuesday.

As a further, weather-related precaution, Peirce Hall and the Olin and
Chalmers libraries will close at 11 p.m. on Monday and on Tuesday. The
Kenyon Athletic Center (KAC) will delay opening on Tuesday by two
hours, opening at 8 a.m. Early morning sports practices are cancelled.

Classes are expected to be conducted as usual on Tuesday unless
cancelled by professors on a course-by-course basis. Students and
employees are urged to use caution when outdoors and dress
appropriately. Students are urged to stay indoors after 11 p.m.
Monday.

The shuttle service will include Kenyon’s 12-passenger vans and
minivans as well as Knox Area Transit vehicles. Vans will operate from
5-8 p.m., boarding at the Craft Center barn, Gund Hall parking lot,
KAC front circle, McBride Hall circle, and the Caples/Mather halls
circle and delivering riders to Peirce Hall. Students leaving Peirce
can request North Campus destinations.

Vehicles will also circulate between the Bookstore, Peirce Hall,
Weaver Cottage, and the KAC between 5-8 p.m. and will leave Peirce
Hall between 8-11 p.m. and deliver riders to North Campus locations. A
van will carry riders from the KAC to North Campus from 9-11 p.m.

Rides will be available throughout the day on Tuesday.  Here is a link

  1. Yet another example of people overreacting to cold weather. Just bundle up and walk a bit quicker. It’s not going to be that cold out.
