Oberlin Blogs

Ruth Bieber-Stanley ’21

Hello, readers! My name is Ruth (she/her/hers) and I’m a 4th-year psychology/German double major and linguistics minor. I hail from Albuquerque, NM, home of the largest hot air balloon festival in the world.

Besides blogging, I wear many other hats on campus! When I’m not reading, note-taking and lovingly putting color-coded events into my Google Calendar, you can find me making vegan meals with my housemates or going on several walks a week to Oberlin's Arboretum. During my time at Oberlin thus far, I’ve held multiple mentoring roles, as a PAL, peer tutor, and mentor in a dance program for girls in the Oberlin Public Middle School. I also work as a lab research assistant in the psych department.

I love writing about my experience at Oberlin! I hope you enjoy my work, and feel free to ask me any questions. I can’t guarantee I’ll know the answer, but I’ll give it my best shot. Happy reading!

I’m not in the bustling metropolis of Oberlin, Ohio, but in the actual bustling metropolis of Berlin, Germany!

I had an amazing month making art that I can use, connecting with people and my landscape, and learning to trust both myself and the clay I shaped.
