A series of vignettes on my Oberlin birthdays.
August 25, 2010
The transfer hall is this great jumping-off place. It's where new students that have attended another college can come get their bearings together and not feel like they are alone with their war-stories of places that didn't fit them.

I still get to hang out with many of my friends and chat with professors about our shared academic interests. It is necessary, however, that when looking at classes in the course catalog I limit myself to drooling, like a diabetic child through the double-paned glass window of a chocolate shop might.
Commencement (and the flood of emotions that comes with it)

Once upon a time (specifically, January 14th, 2006), I was a more-confused-than-usual high school senior applying to Oberlin.
We are Oberlin: [Insert Adjective Here]
August 26, 2009

Admissions, from the in(tern)side
