There’s been a lot of hubbub about the cranes lately, as they are currently the tallest buildings on campus (beating Caples by mere inches). Since we go to Kenyon and since kids get bored here, there have also been many jokes made about there being a crane cult. Here’s the kicker: there kind of actually is one? You’ve got questions, and I’ve got answers.Continue reading
Phase 2 of the ongoing library construction continues with the creation of the first floor open study space. This area will be used for individual study, group meetings, and gossip sessions full of whisper-shouting after a quick Kenyon Lookaround. Note the prevalence of the classic Gund Grey with sprinkles of bright yellow, which is presumably meant to replace the sun as Kenyon students’ principal Vitamin D supplier.
Hello, it is I, the Modular Unit Goblin! And another week at Kenyon means another week of putting up with whatever absolute bullshit the administration is trying to tell us is good for Kenyon. But today I won’t be talking about that problem, I’ll be talking about our beloved library replacements, and their very fast delivery onto Ransom Lawn.
We know that these modular buildings will quickly integrate into Kenyon’s culture. So we here at The Thrill have come up with some modular unit slang we think will come out of these new buildings. And boy, I know I sure can’t wait to try out all these new phrases!
Even though we’ve seen the Kenyon 2020 Plans online, on fences, and in our dreams, many still wonder exactly what the new library should and will look like. Because I will have graduated and received a restraining order from Kenyon by the time the library is completed, I decided to answer these questions by creating the new Kenyon library in the most realistic computer game known to man: the Sims 2. I’ve spoken to a lot of Kenyon simulation truthers, and we can all agree that life at Kenyon is sometimes so odd that we must live in either a corrupted cartoon universe or a simulation created by Graham Gund. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a “strategic life simulation video game” from 2004 is the best way to predict our future. Also, the Thrill already has a surprising amount of Sims content for an blog about Kenyon College, so you signed up for this!
