“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.
