(Via wonderlandmagazine.com) Radnor directing Liberal Arts AT KENYON.

In case you lived under a bush all year and missed that Kenyon alumn Josh Radnor ’96 filmed and directed the movie Liberal Arts at Kenyon over the summer, first of all, way to totes ignore the Kenyon mainstream. I applaud you. Secondly, if you only found out about the movie because you heard Zac Efron appeared in the film and stayed at Kenyon, I love you.
