Something has been cropping up with the flowers on Middle Path—prospies, prospies EVERYWHERE. We're a friendly campus, and I think most of us actually enjoy talking to younger visitors about Kenyon. However, there are some times, like when you're studying for comps (what? I am not studying for comps! I am not complaining about it all the time!) that you really need that extra thirty minutes for yourself instead of talking about the Freshman quad dorm situation. And so, I give you a master gameplan for avoiding prospies:
1. Pretend you're a prospie too. If you look too old, pretend you're visiting your BFF4L.
2. Look at your phone, throw on an expression of intense concern/anger/delight and have a pretend conversation.
3. Talk loudly with your friends about your crazy night of debauchery on Wednesday.
4. While reading on/around Middle Path, grab a copy of The Inferno and act pretentious.
5. Run down the Hill.
