Paul Blart: Safety Officer

Paul's always ready for any emergency, no matter how big or how smal

Paul’s always ready for any emergency, no matter how big or how small

Word has it that we might have a new addition to Campus Safety: Paul Blart. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 opened this weekend to rave reviews, and I think we can bet that there’s going to be a Paul Blart 3 coming soon. Well listen up, Hollywood, because I have an idea for you: Paul Blart at Kenyon, joining the ranks of Kenyon’s Finest. Can’t you picture Paul Blart hanging around Kenyon, doing Safety things? It’s ok if you can’t, because I did it for you.

Kenyon Kanye: Part II

You might not know it yet, but most of Kanye West’s tweets are actually about Kenyon. Almost any Kanye tweet can be tied back to Kenyon if you know what to look for, which we do (shout out to my liberal arts education for these critical analysis skills). Last time, we looked at how Kanye’s tweets reflect Kenyon’s faculty and staff. This time, we’re looking at what Kanye has to say about Kenyon’s campus.

And it’s a wonderful time to reflect on the little things that make Kenyon special.

Where’s Josh Radnor?


Earlier this year, we exercised your eyes by having you find Philander Chase. But really, it’s pretty unlikely that you’ll ever be in a situation where you need to find him in a crowd. Josh Radnor, however, could be lurking on campus at any time. It’s important to keep your Josh-spotting skills in tune, so practice finding the elusive Mr. Radnor in the pictures below.

My Elementary School Journal: A Kenyon Story

Here at The Thrill, we love taking a look back at old (dare I say, repressed) memories. And what better way than looking back at your old Elementary School Journals. Journals are an unbiased look into the past which show us how much we’ve changed- or stayed the same. Personally, I never made it more than a page or two into any of my journals as a kid (my most common entry was “I promise I’ll write more!), but some Kenyon students were much more dedicated. What were your classmates thinking about 10 years ago? Find out below the jump.
