Quintessential Kenyon: Student Life, Uncut

Hello! I'm Andrew. I am the captain of the Soccer team, a campus tour guide, on student council, and work in a research lab. You can find me playing pickup basketball, being a fan at a sporting event, hanging out with my friends, and eating.  If you were to ask my apartment-mates, they would probably tell you I can be found in the library or the science quad. Either way, I love Kenyon and hopefully you enjoy my take on things. 

Take a Break

By Andrew Parmelee on April 22, 2014

Take a break. Kenyon sometimes is too much, so take a break. Not from the college itself, but from your work, your activities and your responsibilities. Sit and listen to music, go for a run or take a nap, but make sure to unwind. Sometimes I listen to some Norah Jones or talk to my mom.

Root Root for the Home Team

As I sit down to watch the UConn men’s basketball team play in the national championship I wonder….. Is it okay that I am a student at Kenyon, but support other colleges and universities? Here is some Erik Satie to listen to while you read. 

Importance of Friends

By Andrew Parmelee on March 24, 2014

It is of course hard to imagine life without friends. Everyone has them. It could be your dog, you uncle bob, or an old sneaker, but everyone has got a friend. I have found college a key place to have them, maybe the best place. Also, cue youtube video.

My friends and I did a little spring break'in the last two weeks. Here is a recap of how the Kenyon folk organize spring break. I will highlight our trip, other trips I heard about, and other thoughts on a 2 week extravaganza of fun. Trust me, it is as good as it sounds. Here is a video of a guy with a DJI Phantom (mini helicopter with a go-pro), taking shots of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (one of my stops).  You don't have to watch the whole thing, I just figured I would continue with my YouTube introductions. 

When to KAC

By Andrew Parmelee on February 25, 2014

As you know, the Kenyon Athletic Center is a fantastic resource, but there are times when it is best to use it. Let me tell you when. Also, if you don't know what the KAC is, let me introduce it.
