Hello there! My name is Meredith (she/her/hers) and I'm a sophomore here at Oberlin! I'm from Pittsburgh, PA, home to Heinz ketchup and beautiful yellow bridges, among other things.
I have not officially declared a History major yet, but I will soon! I'm also planning on a CAST minor (and I may throw in another major/minor into the mix...we'll see). I love digging into the nuances, complexities, and contradictions in topics, and I am one of THOSE people who actually like writing academic papers.
Outside of class, you can catch me studying in Mudd (second floor = best floor) or the Science Library, visiting the adorable kittens at Ginkgo Gallery, or sitting on one of the swing chairs in Tappan. I'm on the editorial board for the Two Groves Review (a literary magazine), a member of the OC Democrats, and a field hockey player. I will also be a Writing Associate soon for Oberlin's Writing Center (if you can't tell yet, I really love reading and writing). I hope you enjoy my blogs!
