My Ideas For Kenyon Merch But They Are Bad

Greetings my fellow purple-clad Gambier residents and Kenyon enthusiasts! With the holiday season fast approaching, there is no doubt that you are wracking your brain wondering what gifts to give. Struggle no more, because I have singlehandedly designed some unique Kenyon merch that will satisfy even your pickiest family members.

Consequently, I’m advertising them exclusively on The Kenyon Thrill. I accept payments through cash, Venmo, compliments, hugs, or basically any sort of general validation. Here are my ideas.

Read on to learn how to remove those stickers effectively. Continue reading

10 o’clock list: Typical Laptop Stickers

Because Kenyon is a walking campus, students show off bumper stickers on their laptops. Because I am a “creative type,” I spend a lot of class time staring at those bumper stickers on their laptops. Below is a list of the laptop stickers I notice most often.

1. The translucent Kenyon stickers that got sent out with our admissions packet. Everyone without a vehicle puts these on their MacBooks.

2. HRC yellow and blue equals sign stickers. Often sighted, as they are ubiquitous Pride giveaways and always available for free online. Sported by middle-aged homosexuals and their allies.
