Four Years of Walking By: A Response to Kenyon Activism

cw: slurs

It happens every year. That’s what I tell first years when they look at me with wide-eyed confusion at the megaphones and the posters telling queer people they need Jesus and women that they need to be quiet. After four years you get used to it, but every year it hurts in different ways.

So Long, Farewell, We’re Gone

Wow what a semester! As always, this is just a post to say that Erica and I have been honored to be your Editors-in-Chief. We’ve had some good times running the thrill, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve posted some things we probably shouldn’t have. But it’s been fun!

Anyway, we’re passing off the gauntlet to Mia Fox and Shayne Wagner as Editors-in-Chief for next semester, and they’re gonna do great!

It’s been real y’all, remember us and think of us when you can #NeverForgetThrillSpring2017

 

Love,

Sam and Erica

These four years will not be the best years of your life, and they will not be the worst. But they will change you and make you into the person you are meant to become. I didn’t want advice when I entered Kenyon, but as I leave I want to give some semblance of advice to you.
