Hi! I’m Sam Schuman, and I’m a sophomore from Montclair, New Jersey. I'm majoring in History, although I also love the politcs, English and French classes I've taken so far and I'm thinking about declaring a second major in one of those subjects! A fun fact about me is that I won my high school yearbook's "celebrity lookalike" superlative for resembling a young Bernie Sanders.

Here at Oberlin I'm a staff writer for the Grape, one of Oberlin's student publications, where I write features about campus news as well as satire for the paper's Bad Habits section. I've hosted a radio show on WOBC in past semesters, as well. I also love to play music (mostly on guitar and violin) and write songs with my friends, so you can find me in the Gear Co-op a lot of the time playing anything from indie rock to classical to jazz, with a smattering of musical theatre. In my free time, I love to read (especially science fiction) and check out live music.
