Fools on the Thrill Presents: Look At This Rash

We at The Fools on The Thrill are starting a new feature called “Look at This Rash.” Really a lot to explain. So, first look, then listen to the narrative:

How to Pronounce: “Class of 2016”


These are someone’s CHILDREN!!!!!!!!! Probably. (via Wikia)

They told me when I was a freshman that the sophomore-senior relationship was something to look forward to.

I didn’t believe them. “But these juniors… they ain’t shit to me!”, I naively protested, internally, because that’s a rude thing to say out loud.

It’s cool! I understand. Everyday can’t be Underclassmen Gazebo Open-Season Day. That would be crazy. Right? That would be crazy, Cath).

So here it is, coming at you live from the deepest recesses of my soul/from inside my parked Ford Escape Hybrid with the windows fully rolled up. Warning: this one was incredibly hard to make, so it’s probably gonna be incredibly hard to listen to.

How to Pronounce: “Ransom Hall”

From campus tours to scholarship meetings, formal events to snowball fights on the lawn that surrounds it, Ransom is just as busy as it is beautiful!
