I visited Oberlin today and sorry for blogging about all my college visits but I’m hoping I can use this later when I need to make Important Decisions.

Anyway.

They are a lot more into sustainability than I would’ve expected. There is this entire building run by its own solar panels and it has this cool indoor fountain and a pond out the back. 

Also their unofficial mascot is the albino squirrel lolol that’s kinda sweet and they have PARAKEETS in their language building because this one professor there researched that white noise helps us learn languages and during finals weeks they bring in PUPPIES for PUPPY THERAPY

Also it’s super liberal there YES

So glad you had an awesome time here! Don’t hesitate to ask us questions when you’re making Important Lists and Big Decisions in the future.

Happy Lunar New Year! Help bring in the Chinese “Year of the Dragon” with these Family Self-Guides! There are many works of art in the Allen Art Museum collection depicting these mythical beasts, and this self-guide takes a look at six of them.

Family Self-Guides are available at the front desk of the museum
, and are a great way to explore the museum galleries. Have a suggestion for a self-guide theme? Let us know!
