My name's Harris and I've been at Oberlin for five years now. For a long time, I was a student, but these days I do web development work for the Office of Communications. I've lived in Oberlin almost year-round for several years running and have gotten to know the college and town both pretty intimately.
I fell in love with Oberlin after I had been admitted, when I first came to see it. The students here were the friendliest, most interesting, and most open people I had met in any of my campus visits. It totally made up for the fact that there wasn't an ocean in sight.
After a long and somewhat twisted decision process, I studied the fascinating world of mathematics. It's not something I or anyone who knew me expected when I first came to school. But like every Obie I've ever met, my studies and interests expand quite broadly beyond my major or my degree.
I bake on occasion, I write, I make art, I dance (contra, swing, blues and various folk), I experiment with electricity, I perform in and direct a semi-improv troupe, I take photos, and I find time on the side to follow a few TV shows regularly (Community and 30 Rock, in particular). I'm best known around campus for making Oberlin-related websites and being an avid dancer and dance organizer.
I also drink a lot of tea.
On the internet or in real life, don't be shy about saying hello. I'm sometimes quiet, but I like talking to you.
