evolution of marriage

Yo, those wedding guests know how to party.

You may or may not be aware that there was a wedding on campus last weekend. I became aware when I almost ran over the bride and groom on two separate occasions with my car. Don’t worry, they’re probably on their honeymoon right now and I’m probably not working on my driving. Whatever. What’s more pressing is that pookie and bun bun made some pretty awful choices for their wedding and reception venues. Rumor has it that a lot of Kenyon alums get married. Sometimes to each other. So, if and when, you and your freaky friend decide to come back to Kenyon to interface, don’t make the mistake of doing it in these places:

1. The Church of the Holy Spirit. Right about now, that church probably isn’t looking so holy. Maybe you made out with somebody on the altar last weekend.

Some Inspirational Graffiti

Someone has been leaving inspirational messages on the walls of Mather. For those of you who don’t have the pleasure of living in the most desirable dorm on campus, a morning treat. And for the sad souls who ended up in Mather during the housing lottery yesterday, this is something to look forward to. It’s not as fancy as those NCAs, but at least it has the best graffiti.

Kenyon Kribs: “Mather’s Weird, But So Are We”

This time on Kenyon Kribs, we take a trip to Mather. Last Wednesday, Ali Stamatoiu ’14 and Phoebe Rotter ’14 were kind enough to let us peek at their room, located in the Penthaus of Mather.  Their room is lovely in every way: it is warm and cozy, and it smells so good that you almost forget you’re in Mather.
