This is a friend’s band, Peaks, and this whole album is awesome. It reminds me of Broken Social Scene, and the female vocals kind of remind me of Andrea Estella from Twin Sister. Give it a listen and download it for free if ya want!
Hello incoming Obie! We’re so glad you’ll be joining us this fall.
Yes, many courses offered at Oberlin serve as fulfillments of more than one graduation requirement, including majors and minors. When declaring your majors/minors, you are asked to list the courses you have already taken and plan to take to complete your course of study, which is then signed by your academic advisor and by the registrar’s office. If a course is listed on your declaration form or falls under the normal course of study, you’ll be just fine. If you add a course later that hasn’t been approved, you’ll be asked to get another form signed before those credits count toward your major requirements (it’s quite easy, though. The registrar’s office is incredibly helpful!).
The Oberlin College Marching Band is a student organization and an Experimental College course, which means that you have two opportunities to get involved. The band varies in size and instrument types every year, but they play at club sports games in the fall and spring and in the Big Parade every May. Their website doesn’t appear to have been updated since the fall, but shoot them an email for more information. I saw them playing just last week, so I know they’re active!

At Oberlin, marching band is considered a student organization, an ExCo (Experimental College) class, and a club sport. The band performs at varsity and club sports games, in the Big Parade, and more.
The last time I saw the marching band in action was at a women’s rugby game last fall. There were around a dozen people, and they did an awesome job of getting the fans pumped up. It’s not at the level of the marching bands of my former high schools, but all members of the band have a blast playing and it’s great to have them at our student events.
Their website hasn’t been updated since the fall, but it has all the information I noted above, and more. They would probably welcome an email from you if you have any additional questions.

Sophia Chen ‘12 recalls 2011, including the creation of a Creed cover band named the Clever Brothers.
Architecture in Helsinki are coming to Oberlin on Sunday!
I saw them over the summer with some friends and they’re really cool in concert; it made for such a fun night! We made random friends at the show, danced crazily at this club where the show was held, went out for fro-yo, and hung out in Union Square. It was tons of fun!
Anyways, thinking about the band is making me feel all reminiscent and sentimental about this past summer/friends and all the good times we had. It’s a nice feeling. And now I look forward to making even more awesome memories associated with the band that I can look back on later on in life just as fondly.
Doors open at 9pm; tickets are $10 with OCID, $15 without.
