Photo of the Week: In celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day, Oberlin College women coaches and athletes hosted more than 100 young girls from Oberlin and the surrounding communities for the third installment of Play Like a Girl. Women student-athletes held clinics in field hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, basketball, softball, badminton, and soccer. “The day was an incredible reminder that to do anything 'like a girl' is to do things with confidence, kindness, and intention,” said Delta Lodge Director of Athletics and Physical Education Natalie Winkelfoos.

New Instruments Bolster Science Research Capabilities

This January, through a combination of charitable gifts and funds from the college, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry acquired two new instruments that will greatly enhance teaching and research in many areas of chemistry and biochemistry, including environmental and forensic analysis, biochemical and peptide/protein studies, and synthesis of new bioorganic and organic compounds.

Happy Valentine's Day to Residents of Kendal

On this Valentine’s Day, I’m thinking of all the wonderful people in the Oberlin community. In particular, I want to recognize the older members of our community who add so much energy and wisdom. Also, as second semester kicks into higher gear, I want to extend my annual offer to meet with any graduating senior to brainstorm job opportunities, careers, and/or graduate schools.
