Lost and Found

On a college campus as lively as Kenyon's, it’s only natural that some things should go missing — and on the flipside, be discovered in unexpected places. Here’s a highlight reel of the season’s lost and found, sourced from campus listservs.

Two interlocking gold rings found in Chalmers. Said the finder: "XO + I like your style."

A TI-89 calculator. Mislaid during finals week, with an exam the next day. Good enough incentive for anyone to offer a $20 finder’s fee.

A "magical device" was left in the Student Accessibility and Support Services suite in Chalmers Library. The staff member who found the item asked the owner to reach out with a description to claim it. Whether it was an artifact imbued with rare mythic properties or merely a Magic 8 Ball, that’s between the owner and the staff member.

A K-Card. "I have managed to lose my K-Card on the first day of my last semester at Kenyon," said the owner, who later retraced their steps to successfully retrieve it.

Paint. Gund Gallery is no stranger to hosting a variety of this artistic supply within its walls, though they’re typically seen rendered onto canvas rather than still in the container. The finder of this oil paint (a yellow ochre hue) dropped it off at the front desk, mercifully unopened.

A library paper cutter (green). Whoever "borrowed" the cutter for any mysterious slicing and dicing needs is encouraged to return it to the circulation desk at their earliest convenience.
