Quintessential Kenyon: Student Life, Uncut

Kenyon College vs. A Fortune 100 Company

By Kate Lindsay on July 11, 2013

In my drowsy daydreams that float through my head before I fall asleep, my future looks something like Kathleen Kelly in You’ve Got Mail. I run a quaint little shop, write when I want, eat what I want, and live in a giant apartment filled with quilts and typewriters. That’s why a big school with huge, industrial classes and a promise to make sure I graduate as early as possible did not appeal to me. I wasn’t doing this so I could get a job. I wanted to wander through college, reading things and petting cats. So you can imagine my surprise at finding myself behind the desk of a corporate powerhouse for the summer.

Meet a Swimmer

By Andrew Parmelee on July 8, 2013

I recently hurt my hamstring playing soccer so currently I cannot run…… BUT I CAN SWIM and Kenyon is a great place to go swimming!!! Here is a professional picture of the KAC pool. I decided this would do it more justice than a picture taken with iPhone. This also got me thinking……… what is it like to be a legendary Kenyon swimmer? So I interviewed Dru, my apartment mate and a member of the much loved Ladies swim team.

Keeping a Kenyon Balance

It's gotten to that point in the summer where all the days are mixing up and I don't know who or where I am. I had a blog post due sometime last week, but here we are. Luckily, during my hazy absence, I managed to experience a little bit of Kenyon.
