Emily Robinson ’12

My name is Emily Robinson, and I'm a freshman college student fromMoraga, California. I'm still very unsure of my major, but I'm usingmy indecisiveness as a perfect excuse to explore all that Oberlin hasto offer.

I've been studying flute for 10 years, so music has always been a hugepart of my life. Unsurprisingly, it has become the focus of myextracurricular life at Oberlin as well. Music has always been themost fun for me when it's relaxing and laid back, so I've beenenjoying many opportunities to make music with a multitude of talentedpeople. I'm a member of the Oberlin College Marching Band, and I playin the College Community Wind Ensemble.

When I have a moment of spare time, I make sculptures out of therecyclable crap that I've been hoarding under my bed for the last fewmonths and pursue other random artistic endeavors. Eventually, I hopeto start a small business selling my art. Until then, my dorm roomwill continue to overflow with cereal box robots - and I'm entirelyokay with that.
