The Hot SheetWanna See You Wiggle It

Belly dance fitness was offered at the athletic center in the fall. How's that for hip? Patrons of the athletic center were warned that the facility could shimmy at any time.

The student band French Club produced an album titled S*** Talk. The Collegian blog The Thrill said the album runs a gamut of emotions ranging from ecstatic to heartbroken to hungover to pensive to just plain pissed, and you'll find yourself singing along no matter what. Just what the world needs.

Press for Prez
The Thrill contributed to the search for Kenyon's next president by nominating five candidates and polling the student body. The winner? The Peirce dining hall Panini press. The recommendation was sent to the presidential search committee. Reports said the grill tested well with all demographics, with the exception of cold sandwich lovers. Certainly the candidate would have knocked it out of the box on Meet the Press.
