Uphill/Downhill: Office Hours and the End

Here we are, last week of classes…

Uphill: Office Hours — I was going to go with Friday Night Blow-Out, but what I am really thankful for is that we still have these into the last week of the semester. This is the time to walk into your professors’ offices and casually tell them you have no idea what the hell you are doing and that you are screwed for the final. It’s ok though, they are there to help. Just try not to disappoint them too much.

Uphill/Downhill: Procrastination and Winter

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Welcome back!

Uphill: Post-Thanksgiving Kenyon — We are now in the homestretch. Professors save some of their best lectures for this time of the semester. We have holiday parties and seasonal food and drink to look forward to. And, of course, Kenyon in the snow is wonderful and cozy. This is one of the sneaky best choices for great times at Kenyon. Admissions would have you believe that Fall and Spring are best, but the first glimpses of Winter are truly spectacular at Kenyon.

Uphill/Downhill: Halloweekend and Safety

Well it’s hump day again, this week kind of feels like it’s flying by.

Uphill: Halloweekend — One of the best weekends of the year is upon us. Great parties, better costumes–it really is the most magical time of the year. Consistently a good weekend that never fails to disappoint.  I’m also genuinely excited to see what costume D-Cat selects. Miley Cyrus? The Nuge? Graham Gund? The possibilities are endless.

Uphill/Downhill: The Inauguration and Programming

Well it’s hump day again, this week kind of feels like it’s flying by.

Uphill: The Inauguration — A once in a lifetime opportunity is upon us this weekend, a new President will be inaugurated while we are still students here. It’s a really rare opportunity that we’ve had (three classes at this school have had two Presidents in their time here). This is going to be a pretty historically significant weekend and it’s one of the cooler traditions we have here at Kenyon. To top if all off, it sounds like this is going to be a pretty rockin’ party as well. My recommendations for this weekend? Stay safe, stay classy, pace yourself.
