A top floor lounge in the Science Center surrounded by glowing sunlight through a wall of windows serves as the perfect study nest for this student. It also serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.

After classes ended on August 24, students spent several days preparing for final exams. Libraries, porches, patios, residence halls, and other spaces were transformed into reading nooks and study circles. At the end of each semester, students are given about four days to prepare for their final exams. This time is commonly known as the Reading Period. This semester, finals will take place August 29 to September 2.

The artistic display of dance, poetry, and music that students brought to the stage in Finney Chapel marked the return of a cherished Oberlin tradition—Colors of Rhythm. The annual talent showcase highlights the work of students of color, and serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.

It’s Saturday night in March and there’s a pulsating glow spilling from the windows of the Root Room in Carnegie Building. Inside, rows of spectators line the perimeter of a long narrow stage. Oberlin’s most anticipated fashion show begins as cheers swell when models, draped in creative attire, take their turn down the walk. This is a signature event during Black History Month. It also serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.
