10 o’clock list: Best Classes to Attend While High

That’s right, everyone, tomorrow is 4/20. Here’s the thing- we’re a pretty studious bunch, so we don’t want to miss our classes. But we’re also pretty cool and hip, so we don’t want to disgrace such an important yearly holiday for our generation.

Now that we’re entering the fourth week of school and have had the first round of all-campus disasters, it’s safe to say that everybody needs a little refresher on some of the more frowned-upon behaviors at parties. If any of these apply to you, please, do us all a favor—adjust accordingly.

1.     Be the Grinding Bandit. So you’re dancing with your girl-frands, having your “I don’t need no man moment” when you suddenly feel somebody’s love muscle on your tooshie. AWWW HELL NO! By the time you turn your schwasty face around he’s gone. Or maybe you never turn around. Either way, a note to all the Kenyon bros—just don’t do it.  Continue reading
