no they dont

No, they don’t.

You’ve been waiting. You’ve been expecting. And it’s finally here. Yes, the tradition of upperclassmen joining the incoming first-year class group on Facebook is still going strong. We’ve been sifting and trolling our way through the myriad of posts that are flowing in daily, and picked some of the funnier goings on to report back. Remember, class of 2018, we do this solely out of love. We can’t wait to see you guys here in the fall!

Moodle is the new Facebook. Says Me.

That mortar board might as well be a backwards snapback.

I’m not going to say that I’m a trendsetter, but, you know. At the very least, I’m the man behind the man (generally this woman, though). It is for this reason that I am declaring myself a Kenyon Tastemaker, and the taste of this week is ditching Facebook. This aging tech giant is about to be a thing of the past.

Netflix isn’t going to help you fall asleep–not even that super soothing nature documentary. Continue reading

Things to Do in Your Spare Time that isn’t Facebook

We’ve all done it.
You’re between classes and you’re looking for something to do that won’t stress you out, so you open your laptop or the app on your phone and you start scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed.
