Who doesn’t love seeing the changing of the leaves, the golden glow soaking the buildings, and the pumpkins that haven’t been smashed (yet) outside of dorms? Fall in Gambier is beautiful, and boy oh boy do people love to post about it. It can be tough to compete with the seventeen different posts of what you could swear is the same exact photo (right down to the scarf and the coffee cup in hand) with a different girl’s face every time. Never fear, thots (happy thotumn)! I have crafted a few sample posts for you to steal so that you can finally be the social media mogul you were always destined to be. I hope these images inspire a new, refreshing take on Kenyon Instagram.
It’s like an Old K all-campus except it’s a brownstone invite-only.

We know you kids love the New Apts, but do you love New Apps? Now that we’re all feeling giggly and safe, let’s get serious for a moment. There’s this app called Instagram and it’s dynamite.

We are humbled before you, asking a favor friend to friend. Give us a follow, throw us a like. Hey, we might even follow you back! Continue reading
There’s a new Instagram account whose primary focus is a subgenre of students they are calling “Kenyon dads.” Usually accompanied by some kind of “dad joke” or a phrase an embarrassed teenager might whine when their father does something embarrassing. The Instagram, KenyonDads, posts pictures of students weekly, crowning a new Kenyon Dad with each post. Lucky for you Thrill readers, I happen to know the Dad behind the Dads. I decided to ask them a few questions in the name of journalism. They agreed, but only if they could remain an anonymous dad.
Every Sunday we track the tag and location #KenyonCollege on Instagram. Then we pick our favorites from the past week. Tag your photos for a chance to appear in next week’s round up!
