Kenyon Listed as Seventh Most ‘Hipster’ College

Thrill writers are forbidden from including the word “hipster” in any of their posts. This is because “hipster”  is both a lazy  adjective and a lazy noun.

Some upper-middle class liberals called us nerds

It seems like just yesterday that we were being ranked by The Huffington Post as one of America’s friendliest colleges. Now the AOL-owned content farm has anointed us one of the top-ten “brainiest” institutions of higher learning in the United States. In addition to Kenyon, the list includes schools such as Brown University (effete), Reed College (high), University of Chicago (pale) and Carleton College (frostbitten).

We are not, however, on HuffPo’s list of “New Ivies.” Which is some bullshit.
