In a normal year, Peirce Dining Hall is an underappreciated hub of Kenyon social life. This year, it is the only rock in the peopleless ocean we call a college campus, and for that I am forever grateful. The fact that all this wonderful food is cooked seven days a week specifically for us is something that I’m not about to take for granted, and I want to show my Peirce Hall fandom in any way I can; any way except one.Continue reading
Being remote this semester has me missing a lot of things about Kenyon, including Peirce Hall’s cuisine. There’s something about waiting in line for food that makes it taste better, I suppose. Since I was feeling so homesick (Peirce-sick?) for Peirce food, I decided to try and recreate Peirce dishes at home.Continue reading
At my interview to get into this school, when asked what I liked about the campus so far, my answer was “the buildings.” Maybe it’s a trivial matter or maybe I was just nervous, but you have to admit there’s nothing like walking into almost 200-year old buildings for class every day.Continue reading
So, most of us drink coffee. The sweet, sweet bitter drink that makes you work like something has grabbed hold of your mind and shoved it into a bucket of water and electrocuted it.

Student Council released a statement today announcing a new Earth Day-themed initiative. Read the full text below:
In observance of Earth Day, there will be no paper cups in Peirce from April 18th – 22nd.
This is a student council-sponsored initiative. Though we know this may not be a popular idea, we are committed to making concessions to make this campus a more sustainable place, we hope you’ll share our sentiment.
In preparation for this weeklong event:
- Leftover CHIP cups will be available outside of peirce during no cups week, first come, first serve
- ECO/student council will do a final dish pick-up and sustain-a-mugs/cup drive on Sunday, April 17th (leave your Peirce dishes & mugs outside your room)!!!
