Phoebe McChesney ’25

Hello! I’m Phoebe. I’m currently a third-year majoring in Politics and planning to minor in East Asian Studies. 

In my free time, I work as a facilitator and member of the Student Leadership Team with Barefoot Dialogue. I am also an Oberlin content creator, serve as an advisor to the Dean of Students, am on the board of the Adopted Obies Club, and serve on the Student Honor Committee. 

When I'm taking some time to appreciate Oberlin's campus, I enjoy walking around Tappan Square, sitting beside the koi pond, or going on rides along the bike path. I love admiring the gorgeous fall colors of the leaves and definitely take the opportunity to stop and snap some pics when I can.

On weekdays, you can usually find me chilling in my dorm, studying, or meandering, plugged into whatever music I’m into at the moment. On the weekends, you’ll find me sleeping, watching YouTube, or deep in thought.

In honor of National Poetry Month, I thought I would share poems I wrote for an assignment in one of my courses, Green Japan, which explores the relationship between Japan and its environment.
