m-azing asked: How do you become an official student blogger for Oberlin?

Be awesome! Apply! Impress us! But really, the two things to do now is to start blogging if you’re not already and to keep an eye out for our application in September (released on the Oberlin blogs).

Since you’re a Tumblr user, I presume you already have a blog, but you might want to consider tagging your original content so we will more easily be able to see what you’re doing when you apply.

This ask from last year covers pretty much everything, but please get in touch with me (maayan.plaut[AT]oberlin.edu) if you want to talk more.

I’m reading the Oberlin blogs and missing college so much right now. 

Not to tug at your collective heartstrings *too* much, but the Oberlin blogs have had some super excellent posts in the last few weeks. Read them!

(Editor’s note: If you’re doing something awesomely fabulous this summer and want to tell the world about it, shoot us a message/ask and we’ll see what we can do to get you a guest post on the blogs :D)

I like to think that if I hadn’t gotten into Oberlin, I would’ve been 100% ok with it. Then I got a phone call from the Oberlin admissions department. Obviously, I was thrilled, but oddly enough, I had done such a good job of convincing myself that I wanted to go to another school that I was a bit hesitant to accept Oberlin’s offer.
