10 o’clock list: Rejected Theme Housing


Look at all those NCAs. So white. So largely homogeneous. Those two attributes don’t reflect Kenyon’s campus at all!!!

Luckily, Theme Housing helps celebrate the marvelous panoply of people and values on campus: Unity House, Anime House, Whose-Turn-Is-It-To-Wash-The-Dishes House (that last one is where I live!).

Not all suggested themes make the cut. Ever wondered which ones get rejected? Now, for the first time, see the previously classified list of proposed housing themes that never got to shine in the fluorescence of those beautifully beige buildings…

  1. Ben House (A House of Kenyon’s Bens)
  2. Emma House (Ditto for the Emmas)
  3. Alex House (…you get the idea)
  4.  Claire/Clare/Clara House (tooooooo easy)
  5. Supernatural House (i.e., for seances in Caples, Ol’ K, etc.)
  6. Supernatural House (i.e., the TV show)
  7. House House
  8. NWA NCA
