10 o’clock list: Things You’ll Miss at Kenyon over Thanksgiving Break

I know, I know. We’re all burned out. We rarely can find the strength (or time) to dig our vitamin-D-deficient selves out of our mountains of homework, our eyelids glued shut, struggling against the sunlight. But hey, the night is darkest just before the dawn–and I promise you, the dawn is coming. Or well, break is coming. After that flight, seeing your family, sleeping in your own bed for the first night and wreaking havoc with friends from home, and maybe even during your inevitable food coma, I promise you: a little, itty-bitty tiny thing inside of you will miss Kenyon.  Here are five things I know I’ll be missing:

For this edition of Made in Peirce, we are tackling the perfect Sunday brunch hangover creation. Continue reading
