Jason Hewitt ’20

Atlanta, GA/Dallas, TX
Major: English

Football, Sports Journalism, History, Hip-Hop, Social Justice, Weightlifting, and Music Performance (Guitar)

What’s up, y’all? My name is Jason Hewitt, and I’m a 2nd-year English major at Oberlin. I grew up in Atlanta, but I moved to the Dallas area going into my sophomore year of high school.

Head out to Knowlton Stadium for our home football games in the fall, and look for #50 on the field to find me.

When I’m not on the football field, I’m usually in my room either writing something insightful for the Oberlin Review (Here's a link to check that out: https://oberlinreview.org/tag/jason-hewitt/), shouting at my television during a game of 2K/Madden, or playing guitar until my fingers get exhausted. As you approach my hall on north campus, you may hear Kendrick Lamar blasting from my room. I make sure people are aware of their loyalty (and royalty) inside their DNA.

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.” That’s the phrase that best describes my collegiate experience at this prestigious institution thus far. It has been an enjoyable yet difficult journey for me, but the results have been very rewarding. I’m a better man because of Oberlin, and I’m only a sophomore!

Despite all the complaints I have about this place, I believe Oberlin has a very special place in my heart, and I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences with you.
