Communications Staff

Since 2009, the Apollo Outreach Initiative has hosted the Apollo Outreach Summer Workshop for Teens, a two-week intensive in which a group of Oberlin College students teach a small cohort of local middle- and high-school students all aspects of the filmmaking process. During the workshop, students produce a series of green screen and stop motion animation experiments and a complete short film, all of which are screened at a closing gala.

This year’s gala will be held at 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 21, at the Apollo Theatre. It is free and open to the public.

A multi-year capital improvement plan to upgrade Oberlin’s Student Union is officially underway, with work beginning during Winter Term 2023. Wilder Hall, designed by Chicago architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee—designer of the Memorial Arch on Tappan Square—opened in 1911 as a men’s dormitory. In addition to providing housing for undergraduate men, the building was conceived as a meeting and performance place, and has evolved over time into Oberlin’s Student Union.
