The month of January at Oberlin is winter term. Instead of returning headlong to the regular classroom, students use the month to dive into a single project or group endeavor. The beauty of winter term is that you create your own project. It could be an internship, an artistic creation, research-based, or even learning a new skill or hobby.

Students are required to complete three winter-term projects for graduation, but in typical Oberlin fashion, most do something great during all four years.

We asked Obies to write home and send pictures. Some even called to say hello.
