Winter Term


Winter Term at Oberlin can take many forms.

During Winter Term Obies stage numerous musical and theatrical productions including the recent world-premiere production of Olympus, with books and lyrics by Cyril Amanfo ’22, music by Cyril Amanfo ’22, Max Addae ’21, and Mark Ligonde ’22, and directed by Professor Caroline Jackson Smith.

The most rewarding projects cross disciplines, connect to personal and professional goals, and provide opportunities for self-reflection. 

Faculty and staff offer on- and off-campus projects that foster exploration of particular topics. Students can also design their own project in consultation with a Winter Term advisor and faculty sponsor.

Integrative Concentrations

For students pursuing one of Oberlin’s Integrative Concentrations, our staff is here to help you meaningfully fulfill the experiential learning requirement through an internship or other project.
