The Kenyon College Political Science Department and Satan have teamed up to provide us with the antiquated tradition, Comps: a two-day-long examination in which PSCI majors develop arthritic hands and the ability to graduate, but in the end, have nothing to show for all their hard work because it’s a test. Academia sure is sweet.
WHAT: Political Science Senior Capstone (comps)
WHERE: Hayes and Lower Peirce (barf)
WHEN: Today, 7:00pm-9:30pm & Tomorrow, 10:00am-12:30pm (actually awful)
- The department is making you
- So you can graduate
- You’re still on the Quest for Justice
- You’re a SOCY major and want to become a little more conservative and narrow-minded?
- The life of man is solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.
This post is dedicated to The Thrill’s Senior Political Science Majors: Colleen Kemp ’20, Lillian Fox-Peckos ’20, and Sarah Hoffmann ’20. Think good thoughts for them in this trying time.
Wow sounds pretty easy, back in the day we had both exams on one day with a one-hour lunch break in between.
