Hi! My name is Janelle and I come from Nashville, Tennessee. I also spend a lot of time in California where my extended family lives. As a first-year, I’m currently undecided on my major, but I’m really interested in psychology. Although I’m not in the Conservatory, I have a lot of interest in music and love exploring all that Oberlin has to offer in terms of musical events! Otherwise, here on campus, you can usually find me drinking DeCafe smoothies, working in Pyle (one of the Oberlin co-ops), or doing work/accidentally falling asleep in a womb chair in Mudd.

Some random facts about me are that I eat a lot of cereal, I can’t keep plants alive, I love going to record stores to buy vinyl, and I want to work in a bakery someday. I loved reading the Oberlin blogs when I was a prospective student and I am so glad that I get to be a part of them!
