Of course every good Kenyon student has heard of the Kenyon Review. But did you know they host a summer camp every year for aspiring writers? Come to Gambier in late-June or mid-July and you will see students everywhere, notebook and pen in hand, aimlessly wandering campus trying to find some inspiration amongst the trees (unless it is 10:07 a.m., then all of them will be in line at Wiggins).
I remember being in high school and hearing all about the fabled “hump-day”. It was an alluring concept: college kids going out and partying on Wednesday nights, regardless of classes the next day. Sure, getting belligerently drunk and showing up to class the next day with a massive hangover is so much fun, but it can get pretty tiring. Have no fear; “Weaver Wednesday” is here! This Klexicon entry is dedicated to the place you can go when you decide it’s about time you show up to your 8:10 on Thursday.
Of course The VI is a great restaurant, bar, and concert venue. But every Wednesday night, it hosts what is perhaps our largest drunken brawl — of wits. By 10pm most Wednesdays, the microphone is set up, groups are forming, cards and pens distributed, and the BACs of the competitors are as high as their hopes.
Smather, aka Samuel Mather Hall, is a building on south campus and is technically a part of the Science Quad. It features mostly psych classes and psych offices, but it’s been known to have other classes like English, Women’s and Gender studies, and many more.
