Athlete of the Week

Congratulations to Katie Baldonieri who was named Domino's Pizza Athlete of the Week!  In six games, Katie is hitting .455 with ten hits, two doubles, and seven RBI.  She's also been doing a great job defensively as she's been shuffling around between center and second.  Keep up with Katie and the rest of the team as we head off to Florida on Saturday!

Best New Artist

Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding, the first jazz artist to win Best New Artist, performed at Oberlin College last week.  Although we had practice at the time and were unable to attend the show, we only heard great things about her sold-out performance here at Finney Chapel.  (Finney Chapel, by the way, can hold nearly 2000 people!)  As is customary when artists or speakers come to campus, she held an informal Q&A with students in the new jazz studies building earlier in the day.

Once again, Oberlin has been named to a "Top....." List.  This time, we've been named #5 on's list of the "Top 20 Most Conscientious College Dining Halls."  With 1/3 of our food coming from local sources; our reusable container policy; food made from scratch and prepared to order; our composting of kitchen scraps and donating used cooking oil to area farms; and the opportunity for students to buy, plan, and cook their own meals in through the co-ops, our dining options are amazing!  I can say, without a doubt, that our chefs need to market their honey mustard dressing, as it's the best I have ever tasted!  As a non-vegetarian, their vegetarian options (tofu burgers, vegetarian chicken patties) are out-of-this-world.  And as a well-versed dessert eater, I delightfully sample at least two cookies and a piece of cake every day.  Check out all our dining hall info.
