Sketch (circa 1960s) offers a way for bored students to pass the time with The Chapel Coloring Book pleasantly. By the late 1960s, the mandatory requirement became a huge issue on campus, and by 1970-1971 the requirement was dropped.

A Pocket Guide to Procrastination is an illustrated comedy pamphlet published by Sketch that informs College of Wooster students how to procrastinate and how to avoid procrastination. The booklet has a yellow paper cover with a drawn caricature of a man with a devil and an angel on his shoulders. The booklet consists of common causes of procrastination including reading a whole set of encyclopedias, planning a bank robbery to pay for college, coming up with excuses for late homework, trying to fix the X key on a typewriter, and many more. This guide references suicide and has some misogynistic drawings. A Pocket Guide to Procrastination was created by Stan Good.
