We’re the Oberlin Yeomen. We Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight! We computate, read and debate from morning till the night. We’re Oberlin. We always win. We’re Oberlin. We always win. We’ll rise to any height.
We’re the Oberlin Yeomen. We fought, fought, fought, fought, fought.We aced the test but on the field our efforts were for nought. We’re Oberlin. We never win. We’re Oberlin. We never win. Some things just can’t be taught.That second verse…
If, um, you desire to sing this song, Oberwiki is here to help you out.
There’s not a lot of tailgating going on at Oberlin, but there are always a few groups hanging out by the stadium during the games (not just football, too). There isn’t a pervasive sports culture here, so celebration and support of the teams tend to centralize around the games proper.

We see some double Oberswag in this photo: varsity jackets AND and an Oberlin Folk Fest shirt.
Postcard of drawing by Bristow Adams, c.1903
Here’s a little gem for you all today, straight from the Archives postcard collection. This postcard features an illustration by journalist, professor, forester, and artist Bristow Adams (1875-1957). Notice the crimson and gold sky - the spirit of Oberlin is truly in the air. To get a sense of the accuracy of Adams’ illustration, compare to this photograph from our Digital Collections.
Aside from the creation of this postcard, Bristow Adams had nothing to do with Oberlin. He was a Stanford grad, and as a student he founded one of our country’s longest running humor magazines, the Stanford Chaparral. He also did some scientific illustration of fur seals in the Bering Sea while still a student, which can be viewed at the University of Washington Libraries Digital Collections here. He remains most famous, however, for his illustrations of college athletics, a few more of which can be found over at the Library of Congress site here. For more information on Bristow Adams, head on over to the site of a fellow archive at the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections at Cornell University Library.
Look at that dapper Oberlin footballer!
What very odd grass. There is no way I can bury my acorn in this field house.
These people must have eaten many acorns this morning! They can’t stop running!
Yesterday I went to a swim meet. I have to say, the only time I have ever been completely underwater was when my acorn fell to the bottom of a puddle in Tappan Square. There must be so many acorns at the bottom of that pool!
Happy holidays, from all of us here in Oberlin!
