It’s sad to admit, but Kenyon isn’t exactly known as a collegiate sports powerhouse. Sure, we’ve got the basics– football, baseball, basketball, walking to the KAC– but maybe it would boost our sports reputation if we added to our slate of athletics. Here are seven sports teams that we don’t have, but should have.
When I arrived at Kenyon two months ago, I noticed a lot more people wore watches here than in high school. This made me start to wear my own watch daily, and now if I go a day without it, I glance at my empty wrist every five seconds (not that I would know– I can’t see what time it is). In particular, I noticed the wide array of watches Kenyon students wear. So here are a few, ranked from most to least practical.
The morning of September 18th, the fire alarm went off in both Mather and McBride residence halls as a result of a gas leak that, in a surprise plot-twist to the Mather students who smelled gas while reluctantly exiting their rooms, was not in the building but was actually in Allen House. Due to the early hour and the… alarming nature of the alarm, many students had not yet arisen from bed, dressed themselves, showered, or gathered their class materials––or any materials at all for that matter. Some exited their buildings with only a towel and whatever bit of dignity they had left. As students flocked from their dorms to Gund Commons to Peirce to their classes, those unaware of the situation were seemingly indifferent to the pajama-clad first year students, paying them little attention at all, but I’d like to imagine a world where the best-dressed (or best not-so-dressed) evacuees of Mather and McBride were given the spotlight they deserve, so here’s what a Mather-McBride Evacuee Fashion Show might have looked like.
It’s a dilemma we’ve all faced: you wake up late for your morning class and you have to decide if you want to use your dwindling time to check the weather or read the Thrill. Now you can do both at the same time!
