A Year In The Life

Ever wonder what it would be like to go to school at Oberlin?  By taking a photo a day, senior cinema studies major Ma'ayan Plaut is able to tell you.  From dorm life, to concerts, to sporting events, to Oberlin weather, behold a year in the life of Oberlin College!

Since it's well past dinnertime for me, I decided to include one of Ma'ayan's pictures of food.  Yum!

Running Wild

Congratulations to both our men's and women's cross country teams for being ranked nationally!  The men's team (#31) is ranked nationally for the first time and are also ranked fourth in the Great Lakes region.  The women's team (#28) is no stranger to the national ranks, as the team is the two-year defending conference champion and senior Joanna Johnson was Oberlin's first-ever NCAA Cross Country All-American last season.  

Stay up-to-date with all Oberlin sports by signing up for our text message updates or becoming a fan on Facebook!

The Resourcerer's Apprentice

Remember the Disney movie Fantasia?  One of the segments features Mickey as the Sorcerer's Apprentice (it uses Paul Dukas' music based on the Goethe poem).  Mickey is a little bit lazy - but very ambitious! - and believes he can use spells and magic from the Sorcerer's spell book to complete his chores.

This film is an Oberlin student's adaptation: it takes place in our very own Mudd Library and features two other Oberlin students as the Resourcerer and the Resourcerer's Apprentice.
