Overheard: First Week Back

Welcome back, clowns! We’ve somehow made it through the first couple of days after break—I’m still blaming all of the chaos on the loss of our fourth week—and now it’s time to slog through winter and hope for another polar vortex. Plenty of things on campus are different but one thing will never change: The Thrill is always listening. We heard you with our sweet baby ears and know what you did last night. It’s Overheard!

See Ya Later, Suckers

But the semester is wrapping up, and as our reign of terror, our occupation over The Kenyon Thrill comes to an end, we are proud to pass on our duties and neuroses to the new editors-in-chief, Jane Zisman ’20 and Lillian Fox Peckos ’20

xoxo,

Colleen and Michael <3

Anyways, I figured I’d do my part in roughing up our image by showing just how edgy our admins and alumni could be if they committed to the sick bit.

Zoinks! Have you heard the news? Students and Texans alike were disappointed when this year’s Senior Soirée went by without an official announcement of the commencement speaker, but The Thrill has some insider information. Beto “Skater Boi” O’Rourke was so very pleased about The Thrill‘s endorsement that not only has he jumped back into the race (who even knew he’d dropped out?), but he’s also decided to do something for us! That’s right, Beto “#1 Rock Band Fiend” O’Rourke is Kenyon College’s Class of 2020 Commencement Speaker! Continue reading

“I’m trying to figure out my existence in front of this work of art, and you guys are making out in front of it??”
