Looking for a snack to snarf during your post-Extendo/pre-seminar snack break? Look no further than The Thrill’s next entrepreneurial endeavor! We’re proud to announce our collaboration with Jelly Belly’s Ivy League-trained Bean Scientists™ which, if all goes well, will produce the world’s first Kenyon-inspired branch of cavity-inducing, jaw-breaking, awe-inspiring sweet treats: Doctor Locke’s Every Flavor Beans. I can hear your stomach rumbling already. If your tastebuds are itching to give these babies a try, have no fear! While our Kenyon Kandies are in production, we’ve decided to treat you to a little sneak peak of our upcoming flavors. Grab a drool cloth, ’cause these tiny morsels are – according to our taste-testers (who, full disclosure, are just prospies we grabbed from an afternoon tour group) – delectable.
1. Hash Brown Triangle
Though these tiny morsels contain no real potato, they’re sure to delight kids and adults alike! Enjoy the buttery comfort of Peirce’s most famous creation without leaving your bed-turned-hangover nest on lazy Saturday mornings. Be careful, though – ingesting too many of these has been known to cause tongue numbness and starch addiction, as well as reverse homesickness in children 18-24.

It’s my first tattoo. I got it last May … One day I was really really bored in class so I started doodling on myself … and happened to be able to draw a turtle in one stroke, and I thought that was cool, and then added meaning on it, like it’s to protect myself, like a turtle shell, and it’s just really cute … I kept drawing it on myself from October to May to make sure that I wanted it, so when I actually got it people didn’t notice.

1. You thought there were witches. You saw the way people dressed and thought that we were all at LEAST Stevie Nicks type of witches. Flow-y dresses, big sweaters and shawls, witchy boots- oh my god totally witches. Nope, not witches, just hip hip hip hip2b square.
Let’s face it, bud, there are going to be a lot of parents on campus this weekend. Whether or not yours are making the pilgrimage, it’s almost guaranteed that several of your peers will be towing their elders across campus for a while. That being said, you can’t just carry on with your typical rhetoric. Unless your parents are riding front row the Cool Train, you might want to censor a few of your usual conversation topics. So here’s the deal- if you blow an engine early on with a particularly noticeable gaffe, there’ll be nowhere for you to land safely. Starting your sentences strong is a good escape plan for later slip ups. Here are a few engine-blowers for you to avoid in your parental communication quest.
