Minerva Macarrulla ’23

Hi everyone! I'm Maca or Minerva (either one is good), and I’m a third-year environmental studies and comparative American studies double major. I've also taken a lot of dance classes. If these mean anything to you: I'm an INFJ, my primary love language is physical touch, my ascendant is in Pisces, and I have synesthesia.

I’m on the board of Obies for Undocumented Inclusion (OUI), a student organization that advocates for the emotional, academic, and financial wellbeing of undocumented students at Oberlin, as well as hosting events to educate allies/accomplices on undocumented issues. On campus, I live in Latinx Heritage House. I spend a lot of time journaling, doing schoolwork in the beautiful environmental studies building, listening to podcasts, and bugging everyone I love for massage exchanges.

I don't really want to be an Oberlin advertisment. I am at peace with the fact that I both adore and despise Oberlin, with the same heart, in the same breath, from the same baffled mind. Although it's much easier to write about the positive aspects of Oberlin on here, my hope for this blog is that my perspective will give someone some insight on what might draw them towards or away from Oberlin, and that they can read something entertaining in the meantime.
