Senior Elana Meyers sees backpacks just about everywhere on campus: hanging from the backs of chairs, strewn on the library floor, serving as pillows in Wilder Bowl. And seeing so many backpacks made her wonder: What’s in an Oberlin student’s backpack anyway? So she took out her video camera and took to Mudd to ask a few of her peers what they were toting. See what she found by visiting the Oberlin College YouTube page.
