The Crap in our Refrigerators: Illustrated

A Kenyon student emerges from their final class of the day and heads to their dorm. It’s 4:00 pm and the comfort of their bed is as enticing as a thick cut of meatloaf slathered in ketchup*. That sweet bliss of a peaceful dorm room is at their finger tips as they turn the handle of their door. However, upon entry, the student knows something is wrong; there is an odor in the room. Now, this odor isn’t a familiar odor. It isn’t the dank smell of the hallway. It isn’t the stale beer of the stairwell. It isn’t the abandoned slice of pizza from an all-campus that has been sitting on the water fountain for 3 days. What could it be? The student strides over to the mini fridge in the corner of their room and flings the door open.

 

* if you do not find this image enticing find me in person and we will talk. Peirce meatloaf is a not so hidden gem. Ketchup is the caviar of the masses.

What if the beauty pulled us in and fixed us to stare at the underside of Pore’s butt cheek for eternity? Continue reading

Olin Desk Graffiti: Illustrated

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. Continue reading
