“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.

 


Submit your postcard by email to Yvonne Gay, photography projects manager in the Office of Communications, at ygay@oberlin.edu.
