College offices are scrambling to meet a new Dye directive — reduce
operating budgets to avoid staff cuts.
13 to 15, my only real aspiration was to follow the Grateful Dead around
for the rest of my life. I grew out of that phase many years ago, but
I was still thrilled to hear that ex-Grateful Dead drummer, Mickey Hart,
would be rocking out in Finney Chapel this past Sunday. There, playing
with his latest nine-piece ensemble, Bembe Orisha or “Party of the
Saints,” Hart introduced his self-described “not Eastern”
but “not Western” world music to Oberlin.
rule established last year that conflicts with Oberlin’s add/drop
period has proven problematic for some of this year’s fall teams,
particularly the women’s soccer team. The Yeowomen were forced to
play its Tuesday game against Marietta College without four of its starters.
The Yeowomen lost the close game 3-2 to drop their record to 4-4.
To the Editors:
I was horrified
to read the interview with Nancy Dye in last week’s Review, where
she unashamedly declared her disagreement with Oberlin College’s
proud, achievement-oriented motto: Think one person can change the world?
President Dye’s notion that “anything worth doing or anything
that needs to be changed is best dealt with through collective action”
completely disregards the most potent instrument of change that can ever
exist: the individual.
