Oberlin Blogs

Minerva Macarrulla ’23

Hi! I'm Maca or Minerva (either one), 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 Movimiento, a Latin dance group fresh out of its 2020 hybernation. I’m also on the board of Obies for Undocumented Inclusion (OUI), a student organization that advocates for the wellbeing of undocumented students at Oberlin and hosts events to educate allies/accomplices on undocumented issues. This semester, I'm teaching an ExCo (class) on massage, and I choreographed and performed in a dance piece in an annual show called Spring Back. On campus, I live in Latinx Heritage House. I can frequently be found doing schoolwork in the beautiful environmental studies building.

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. It is so much easier to write about the positive aspects of Oberlin on here, but 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. Feel free to email me with any questions at mmacarru@oberlin.edu.
