Campo Officer Turns Into John Stamos With New Campus Safety System

Campo Officer Turns Into John Stamos With New Campus Safety System

A small, fortunate portion of Kenyon College has been graced with the presence of a rapid knock on your door, the sweet coo of a campo officer announcing their name, and the hectic shuffling of items before opening the door and trying to nonchalantly say hello without pissing your pants.
