For the second year in a row, we were fortunate enough to have two Halloweekends, which means anywhere from two to seven opportunities to celebrate this spooky time. But, I mean is next weekend even a Halloweekend? Feels more like Mamma Miaweekend to me, but that’s probably because we celebrated too early. PEEPS Halloween kicked off spook week, so we asked our new first-year writers to reflect on their first Kenyon Halloween.

Old K Laundry Looks

Image result for chamber of secrets game washing machine

hi, Nate here, I picked this image, does anyone else remember the Chamber of Secrets game where you had to fight the Weasley’s washing machine? Crazy

I want to preface this cursed article by saying that I am fully aware of how disgusting the concept of this is. I’m here to tell you that I don’t give a singular hoot. Needless to say, I didn’t care enough about myself or my health to stop myself from embarking on this journey! Here are five outfits perfect for any occasion that I made from the pile of clothes left in the Old K laundry room:

A Guided Picture Tour of Kenyon College

Wassup, everyone. We’ve all been coexisting in Gambier for about two weeks now, but if I’m being honest, I still get lost all the time. I know, I know. A junior, as poised and mature as me, is lost? It’s not as unlikely as it seems. So in order to better orient ourselves around campus, I’ve decided to take you on a simple, guided picture tour of Kenyon College. On this tour, we will cover many of Kenyon’s most iconic and campus-culturally relevant spots in the hope that maybe someday I won’t walk into Peirce thinking it’s Smather. Here goes nothing.

My name is Mia Fox. I never believed in ghosts until I came face to face with one. So I set out on a quest to capture what I once saw video. With no big camera crews following us around, I am joined only by fellow investigator Becca Allen and our equipment tech Jenna Bouquot. The three of us will travel to some of the most highly active paranormal locations on campus where we will spend maybe thirty minutes or so being locked down.

10 o’clock List: Kenyon Ice Cream Flavors

So many flavors, which one will you decide on? (Via http://www.newyorker.com)

Peirce has been increasing their ice cream and frozen yogurt game recently, and in the past few weeks we’ve seen flavors from blueberry to passion fruit. Peirce ice cream is tried and true and always a solid meal choice. What would happen though if there were Kenyon flavors? What is the most quintessential Kenyon flavor?

  1. Old Kenyon. This one will deceive you with its look. Three flavors make the treat so perfect: Keystone light, sweat, and small traces of vomit. Just like Neapolitan ice cream brings you back to tea with your grandmother, this treat will bring you back to that last time you ran out of Old K, your hair stuck to your forehead with sweat, and accidentally peed in front of all the DKEs. College, man! Continue reading
