Romaine Calm! (Kenyon vs. the Romaine Lettuce Epidemic)

Romaine 1.png

You may or may not have heard about the recent romaine lettuce epidemic. The CDC has publicly stated multiple times that we do our best NOT to consume the Big Leaves until further notice. But what are the reasons behind this proclamation? What has happened to our lettuce? Who is destroying the sanctity of these vibrant emerald staples of American society? All this and more in my BIG LETTUCE CONSPIRACY THEORY INVESTIGATION.

Hey, Kenyon! In light of recent events, a lot of students have expressed feelings of fear and discomfort traveling into Mount Vernon/the Knox County area alone, as well as walking around campus at night. Crozier got wind of this and has decided to set up a Buddy System! Their goal is to ensure the safety and comfort of anyone who might feel uncomfortable going places by themselves. In other words, they’re going to make sure we all have someone to swim with if need be! Thanks, Crozier!

Yeah, I know. You’ve had Beer & Sex, and you, like me and every other member of the Kenyon student body, went to every meeting, memorized everything your Beer & Sex advisors said, and have ever since then been living a responsible and uneventful life, especially in regards to substances. That’s super great and I’m real proud of us. Continue reading

10 o’clock list: How to Behave at Parties

New-Releases-Top-College-Party-Songs

In college, EVERYONE wears their high school letter jacket to parties!

The gang’s all finally here! Now that the hustle and bustle of our beautiful campus has been restored, the social scene is picking up. Specifically, parties. Be it NCAs, New Apts, Old K or other, this weekend (and in many weekends to come) there will be alcohol, dancing, and general merriment. And while parties can be a great way to meet new people and relax, they can also be scary, especially to those who haven’t been to a college shin-dig before. So to all you first years out there, these are some tips to having a good time and avoiding party fouls.

  1. Use your words. Does this person want to dance with you? Are you allowed to drink this person’s vodka? Is the resident of this NCA okay with you coming in? Ask. The great thing about being a first year is that no one is going to judge you for not knowing where Weaver is or how to get to the New Apts. This is a pretty friendly campus, and most people want to help you. That being said, crashing private parties and pressuring upperclassmen to find you alcohol is not the best way to kick off the year.  Continue reading
