Oberlin schedules a winter term of four weeks in January to encourage and enable students to discover the value of self-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 might participate in on- or off-campus organized, intensive projects offered by faculty and staff. Students might also develop projects of independent study or research, complete internships, and undertake other projects of educational value that the structured curriculum during the academic year cannot accommodate easily.
Stop by the Office of Winter Term between 10 a.m. and noon each Monday and Wednesday throughout the fall semester for a 30-minute individual advising session.
We want to help you make the most of your winter term experience by assisting you in determining the project that best suits your interests and goals. Sign up online to schedule an advising session .
One-hour group sessions are also available from 2-3 p.m. Wednesdays. To participate in these sessions, send email to email@example.com .
Be sure to contact us if these advising times don’t suit your schedule.
