Whether the mere mention of Peirce food fills your tummy with the happy rumblies or the cruddy yuckies, a Peirce meal is an experience that most of us undergo anywhere from one to seven (?) times a day. And wherever you lie on the spectrum of AVI loyalty, there is one thing that we all can agree on: the raw sexual energy that abounds within the threshold of those glass door. Hungry bodies, jostling and rubbing against each other frantically; the forbidden intermingling of wheat products in the gluten free freezer; the sudden chemistry of two hands accidentally touching whilst both reaching for the sweet, gooey release achieved from a dollop of Yoder’s Family Farm strawberry preserves… In Chef Meagan’s immortal words, taken from her Peircegiving 2014 address, “What a sexy sight :) ”.
According to a recent Peirce status update from Thrill idol Chef Meagan, Columbus-based favorite Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream will be making its debut at the KAC in October.

Kenyon is a fantastic place, but we’d be lying if we didn’t admit that it messes with our heads every once in a while. Here are some common phobias experienced by Kenyon students, and why those fears are irrational.
Gatapsygeiophobia – The fear of opening the mini-fridge in your dorm room to find it swarming with live feral cats. This is, of course, irrational, as cats do not have opposable thumbs; even BamBam’s polydactyl paws cannot grip the handle to your refrigerator. Also, mini-fridges are just that: mini.
