Oberlin’s first major snowfall on December 1 draped buildings, pathways, and tree branches.

As several inches of snow blew through the town and surrounding areas, most residents stayed inside, while others, like the contributors to this week’s photo series, braved the elements to take snapshots of the campus bathed in white.

This Week in Photos: The Cover Shot

December 10, 2020

Bountiful bowls of leafy greens, soups, pastries, and cheeses were creatively stylized on a rustic table and photographed for the spring 2013 issue of the Oberlin Alumni Magazine ( OAM ). This front page image is just one of many examples of the artistry involved in this long-standing publication’s cover designs.
