Attention all Kenyon College students, faculty, and simulated critters: the Kenyon 2020 Plan is now shifting from Phase 1 into Phase 2. Read on to see the first images of the new Kenyon library. Also, please be aware of recent mod glitches––we’ve recently noticed modular units popping up on Peirce lawn, which definitely isn’t part of the plan, right? Continue reading
Hey all, hope you’re having a fantastic start to the semester. The weather’s been nice enough, the pizza at Peirce has been dope, and the hills are alive with the sound of music.

Turns out, the Sims 3 has all these awesome customizable features, so I was especially excited to sit down and attempt to Sim-ify my co-bloggers. Several crises arose: The registration code wouldn’t work, the saved games are computer specific, so I lost all my progress, and there is no option to give a Sim braces.
