We are back on campus and some things are the same but also, some things are different. In this period of transition times can be tough so here are some poems to get us through.

Today the student body of Kenyon College was informed via an e-mail from Tacci Smith that this Saturday, normally known as day 2 of Summer Sendoff, that no Kenyon students would be allowed to register any events on the South Quad. The e-mail from Tacci seems to be an effort on behalf of the College to quickly and quietly bring an end to Summer Sendoff.
This article was written by Kenyon Collegian News Editor, Madeleine Thompson. Updates to come.
An email from Associate Dean of Students Tacci Smith sent this morning has changed the policy for outdoor Saturday Sendoff events. Instead of what was last year’s Castaway assortment of cookouts and student gatherings on the South Quad, the Delta Phi fraternity will be “hosting student bands” from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Normal party policy will apply, I.D.s will be checked and no additional alcohol may be brought in. Approved areas on South campus for convening outside are now limited to “behind Old Kenyon in the Taft Cottage area, one per building, Acaland Apartments, up to three for the whole lawn, vicinity around the NCAs, including New Apts, one per block, lawn by Watson near the basketball/volleyball courts, up to two around fraternity lodgest, one each lodge,” according to the email.

Over summer vacation, second-floor Chalmers and certain sections of third-floor Olin got some work done. The changes seem to be on purpose rather than an elaborate (and expensive) prank perpetrated by a group of rogue professors.
Revamped Second-Floor Chalmers:
Winter break is a time to relax. Reset your inner clock after that sleepless time at semester’s end known as
HELL finals week. I personally interpret those four weeks as a time to take some “me time.” What constitutes “me time” varies from person to person. For some people it’s snuggling up with a good book (that is not assigned to you). For others, it’s just having the freedom to be completely naked in the privacy of your own room, apartment or house. Now, when “me time” lasts for an extended period of time some people experience … changes. (For example, I had “me time” from 7th grade until I graduated high school. I essentially became an only child. And now my parents clearly love me more than my two older sisters.) But how does one deal with or respond to the new changes in your beloved Kenyon pals? That’s where we come in. From a new haircut a totally new personality — we’ve got ya covered.
