Every January, Oberlin's four-week long winter term encourages and enables students to discover the value of self-directed education. During winter term, students may choose to pursue projects that are directly linked to their field of study or explore opportunities unrelated to their major.

Students can participate in on- or off-campus intensive group projects offered by faculty and staff. Or, students may develop independent study or research projects, complete internships, or undertake rigorous personal development projects.

Advising Sessions

The winter term office wants to help you make the most of your winter term experience!  Through one-on-one advising sessions, we can assist you in determining the project that best suits your interests and goals.

Our 30-minute individual advising appointments are available on Mondays and Wednesdays throughout the fall semester. Schedule your appointment.

If the available advising times don’t suit your schedule, send email to and we will be glad to help you find a different appointment time.
