Oberlin is a dynamic and interactive place. It may be difficult at times to keep up with academic breaks, tutoring and career exploration sessions, athletic events, concerts in the Cat, not to mention deadlines for advising and course selection. Here are a few quick links to help you stay on top of your game.
Winter term is your opportunity to explore and broaden your interest in a particular field of study, be it creative, academic, scientific, career- or service-oriented, or totally unconventional; ether on campus or off; solo or with a group.
