Reading, history, politics, bad puns, offbeat humor, acting, cats, and a warm cup of tea on a cold winter's day.
Hello there! My name is Meredith (she/her/hers) and I'm a first-year here at Oberlin! I'm from Pittsburgh, PA, home to Heinz ketchup and beautiful yellow bridges, among other things.
I have yet to declare my major, but I'm currently super interested in History and/or Politics. My favorite classes right now are my first-year seminar, Justice in America?, and an intro American History class. 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), drinking tea with my friends in one of Kahn's 3rd-floor lounges, visiting the adorable kittens at Ginkgo Gallery, or sitting on one of the swing chairs in Tappan. Right now, I am on the editorial board for the Two Groves Review, a member of the OC Democrats, and a field hockey player. I'm also interested in possibly writing for one of the newspapers or acting in one of the many productions here at Oberlin, and probably a lot more stuff that I haven't figured out yet! I hope you enjoy reading my blogs!
