Alumni Association

Together We Win

Natalie WinklefoosWelcome Reunioning Alumni,

We are thrilled to be celebrating reunion week with you! Despite the many obstacles that showed up this academic year, Oberlin College Athletics continues to grow forward.

We grieved the loss of gamedays, we relied on creativity as we looked for safe ways to replicate the joy and growth that comes with competition. We safely surrounded ourselves by supportive teammates, colleagues and alumni.

Our athletics department continues to come together in the spirit of collaboration and shared responsibility to make educational moments happen for our student-athletes, our staff and campus community.

Just as we build leadership skills daily on our fields, pool, courts, and now zoom rooms, we are equally invested in helping build the skills necessary to transform our athletics community where people are seen, heard, valued, cared for, and respected as their full selves. We are engaged in discussions and taking action to create the kind of essential change we hope will help achieve equality and help us become a more just athletics department. We are listening and learning out loud.

I hope you will join us in celebrating the success of Oberlin’s student-athletes and the impact health and wellness programming is having on the entire campus community. We appreciate you and your support.

Together we empower.
Together we engage.
Together we elevate.
Together we rise.
Together we win.

With gratitude,
Natalie Winkelfoos
Associate Vice President for Athletics Advancement and Delta Lodge Director of Athletics & Physical Education
