Nearly 80 members of the men’s and women’s track & field teams completed a day of service at Oberlin Community Services, Legion Field Community Garden, and The Big Space (headquarters of the Big Parade) on Sunday, April 19.

Photo of the Week: Located on the second floor of Mudd Library, the Letterpress Studio is accessible to students through an ExCo class, a winter-term group project, and opportunities for class visits. Here, Jacob Gilbert ’16, a student in the ExCo, drips various colored paints into a tray in a process called paper marbling. The paints, he explains, float to the surface of the liquid, allowing him to carefully manipulate the colors using a comb or other tools to create a marbled pattern. See “Learning through the Letterpress” for more information on the Letterpress Studio. Comment »
