Olin Desk Graffiti: Illustrated

February 22, 2017


We’ve all been there, idly drawing in the margins of our notebooks during class. An angsty exclamation here. A 3D cube there. Your name in script everywhere. The scholarly minds of Kenyon students have taken it all one step further. Our pens and brains cannot and will not be tamed. No pretentious comment or Shakespeare quote is safe within the confines of the classroom. Fueled by the fluorescent lighting and a vaguely purple color scheme, students have taken to Olin Library desks to express their inner musings and demons. Read more…

Students in Uproar Because February is Not Terrible

February 21, 2017


“You don’t KNOW winter,” an upperclassman said, this past September, “just WAIT until February, you’re in for a shock.” Every year, upperclassmen begin their interactions with first year students by telling them that February is going to be the worst thing they’ll ever experience. Fancy buzz words like “polar vortex” and “la niña” are thrown around, and soon enough first years begin to feel the pressure of the six feet of snow that loom ahead.

The Monday Catchup

February 20, 2017

I have no idea what I’d do without the sketchy, online photo editor that is BeFunky. These cover photos wouldn’t be the same.

Can you feel that? It’s Vitamin-D coursing through your veins and the itchy sunburn you got from lounging outside all weekend. I saw someone the other day with a huge sunburn right on their neck. It was funny, because I’ve never seen a sunburn with such a dark hue. It was mottled too. I tried to google ‘sunburn neck blue purple,’ but all I got was the IMDB page for a B-Movie called “Hickey” and forums riddled with he question, “can you die from a hickey?” I’m guessing the medical community has coined a new term for sunburn, and its ‘hickey’.  In that case, I hope you got LOTS of hickeys this weekend!
