I Tried Eating Like I Was at Peirce For a Week

Being remote this semester has me missing a lot of things about Kenyon, including Peirce Hall’s cuisine. There’s something about waiting in line for food that makes it taste better, I suppose. Since I was feeling so homesick (Peirce-sick?) for Peirce food, I decided to try and recreate Peirce dishes at home.

Fun DIY Crafts To Make With The Crow Feathers You May Find Around Campus

Endless Potential

We’ve all seen them, and we’ve definitely all heard them–crows. We give them trees, in which they do such bird activities as roost, perch, and preen, and in return, they give us feathers. Scattered throughout campus, there are a number of uses for these feathers that we students take for granted. Here are some ideas:

It’s October! The leaves are changing, you’re realizing that you shouldn’t have skipped that week of Modern Quest readings, and your once-perfect skin is beginning its annual shedding.

Because Sendoff is coming up, I figured we Kenyonites should start taking some style tips from the “trendy” influencers partying in the desert.

Kenyon Lifehack: DIY Wine Fridge

unnamed

Those flowers were picked in early September, and are even more gross than they look.

Even for a lifehack, this one is pretty simple (and, perhaps, pretty hack-y.) All you’ll need to get started is — a) a bottle of wine, b) a window (preferably in an NCA or New Apt., but you can covertly make this work in a dorm setting as well), and c) a brutal Ohio winter. Ready?

  • Step 1 — Select your wine. I went with “$3.83 Kroger bottle of unknown vintage.”
