I Propose A Social Experiment

Hello all. I declare a drought. No, I am not implying that there is any sort of water crisis plaguing central Ohio. Or that we are entering the sequel to the Dust Bowl.  In all honesty, I wish that was the case. This, my friends, is far more pressing. I suppose it isn’t technically regarded as a “crisis”, however, I can no longer hold back my strong discontent with the set of eligible bachelors at Kenyon College.

Weekday Playlist: Valentine’s Day (But Extremely Unhelpful)


Hey everyone. It’s The Thrill‘s resident hopeless romantic here.

10 o’clock list: Ways Kenyon is like PCA


The similarities are insane.

The similarities are insane.

Although Kenyon isn’t situated on the warm, beautiful California coast and guys like Logan definitely don’t exist here, Kenyon is pretty similar to PCA from Zoey 101. With these differences aside, it wouldn’t be too much a shock if Zoey Brooks was caught eating at Peirce with Lola or if Quinn was trying to fly an airplane off of Peirce. As a matter of fact, Kenyon and PCA could actually be the same school.

  1. KAC sushi is Sushi Rox. At Kenyon, KAC sushi is a vital part of our social, everyday lives. Sushi Rox, arguably the coolest spot at PCA, offers a wide assortment of rolls. The Kac Sushi also has a nice variety, although we cannot promise that boys as wonderful as Chase will be working there. Continue reading
