Oberlin and Climate Change
The Alumni Association, in conjunction with its

role in the effort, will be examined. Presented by OC staff, students,
and alumni, sessions will include "The Basic Science of Climate Change"
and "The Oberlin College Contribution to Greenhouse Gas Emissions:
Status Report," as well as panel and breakout discussions on the College's
policy and goals for climate justice. Reading materials will be provided

Which Way to Oberlin?
than 120 of you took a crack at OAM's "Which Way to Oberlin?" contest
(Fall 2002), which asked you to guess the location of an "Oberlin"
and "College" intersection. Your replies suggest that such cross streets
are common--existing in Houston, Albuquerque, Iowa City, and Columbus.
Half of you guessed correctly that our photo was shot in Palo Alto,
Calif., near Stanford University. And although some of you 'fessed
up to Internet cheating, we're pretty sure that our winner was on
the up-and-up. Congratulations to Megan Cutnaw '99, of Lorain, Ohio,
who spotted the sign during a visit to Stanford.

Corrections from Previous Issues
The article "Alumni Day of Service" (Fall 2002)
incorrectly identified Camille Presbury as the daughter of Clyde Owan.
Camille actually belongs to Graylin W. Presbury '78. "One More Thing"
(Summer 2002) incorrectly identified Pat Tarnow '49 as a former class
president. Barbara Bayless '49 actually served in that position.
