“Like my two cats, the typical Obie is indiscriminately curious. Teaching someone like that is a lot of fun, particularly when it also forces you to expand your own curiosity beyond your discipline’s boundaries. That, for a social scientist like me, is a welcome bonus of teaching here.” - Professor of Economics Viplav Saini

Let us stand up. Let us be a concerned generation. Let us remain awake through a great revolution. And we will speed up that great day when the American Dream will be a reality. We, in the final analysis, can gain consolation from the fact that at least we’ve made strides in our struggle for peace and in our struggle for justice. We still have a long, long way to go, but at least we’ve made a creative beginning.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in his 1965 Oberlin commencement address, “Remaining Awake Through A Great Revolution.”
