Winter Term

Oberlin's unique Winter Term encourages and enables students to discover the value of self-education and take advantage of unstructured time outside of classes to learn.  There is an emphasis on experimentation and creativity, intellectual independence, and personal responsibility. 
Melanie, one of our first-year players, is undertaking a cooking project.  If you know Melanie, I'm sure you wonder as I do what she's like near a hot stove or sharp knife.  But so far, with her mother's guidance and careful eye, Melanie seems to be seeing success.  Follow her along her journey.
