“The best thing about my quarantine workday (besides hanging out with my toddler) is seeing my students, even though they are far away. The second best thing is seeing them when it's warm enough to be outside in my backyard in Lakewood. Students + sunshine (+ toddler) = happiness,” writes Kathryn Metz , assistant professor of ethnomusicology.

This photo series is dedicated to the Oberlin experience we celebrate throughout the year. In this week’s collection, we showcase events that took place earlier this month: a Tiny Ref Desk Concert that featured the battle cries of women suffrage workers; melodies of the Oberlin Baroque Orchestra in Kulas Recital Hall; art used as a means of support in the Allen Memorial Art Museum; and the men’s and women’s lacrosse teams end the season matchups.

Winter Term is a time of year when Oberlin students are encouraged to conduct independent or group projects outside of courses related to their majors. Pursuits can be done on or off campus with students choosing to work almost anywhere on the map. This year we highlight some of the work by the more than 900 students who completed projects in Oberlin.

In this photo series, we walk with the dinosaurs in Cleveland and visit a congressional intern in Washington, D.C., before coming back home to Oberlin to watch the Wild Beast of the Bungalow take over the stage in Warner Concert Hall; go snowboarding in Hales Gym; and sit in on a gallery talk, book art class, choir practice, an academic retreat, and a dance performance.
