Hello! My name is Ilana and I’m so excited to be blogging about Oberlin! I’m originally from Omaha, Nebraska, and before you ask, my house was not next to a cornfield (said cornfield was actually down the street). It’s my third year here at Oberlin, and I’m so grateful to be here amidst all the pandemic craziness. I’m a double-degree student, studying viola in the incredible Kirsten Docter’s studio (AKA the Docter’s Office!), and math in the college. This means I have very little time to do much else, but in true Oberlin fashion I fill that time right up! I’m involved in Jewish life on campus through both Hillel and Chabad student groups, and I am the iDLEC (interim Dining and Loose Ends Coordinator) in Keep Co-op, where I'm dining this year. Everything is bonkers in the world right now, but if you ever want to share stories, feel free to reach out!
