1st Semester Winding Down

I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was great and that you were able to spend time with friends and family. The semester is beginning to wind down here (2 more weeks of class and then finals). Our players are preparing for Winter Term in January and I thought it would be interesting to share what some of them are doing.

We have several guys doing research internships, one with a neurologist in NYC, one in a genetics/neurobiology lab in Chicago, and one doing biochemistry research on campus. One of our guys is learning to play an instrument called an Ocarina and one is doing an intensive chamber music project on campus with his string quartet. We also have guys doing language study, script writing, and the one project I hope to see (and taste) some results from is from our player who will be working in a French bakery.

If you missed the story on the website, both tennis teams at Oberlin are dedicating their seasons to John Stern, who passed away recently. John was a great supporter of Oberlin College and the athletics department.

I encourage people to go to the website to see our schedule and want everyone to mark their calendars for March 6th. We will be playing Hope and Grove City Colleges that day and are going to make it our parents’ weekend for the spring.

I would like to be remembered as fair minded, always trying to do things with class, never knowingly hurting anybody.
