My wife went to Oberlin and, from what I understand, pretty much everybody does a stint of organic farming after they graduate.
If they don’t do it already, I hope they start selling Oberlin-branded farm equipment in the school’s bookstore.

Congratulations Class of 2013! Be sure to let us know what you are doing – be it organic farming or something else – by posting in OBIEWeb!

Oberlin Fight Song Lyrics Circa 1852 

orashaboogie:

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.

Anonymous asked: Hey there, as an incoming freshman, I was wondering what the tailgating scene is like before football games? Since there aren't frats, is it in one of the dorms or just outside the stadium? Thanks!

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.
