Campus is quiet right now as our students take advantage of our Winter Term to do independent study projects. They pursue these on or off campus and the tennis team is no different in that some of our guys are here while others are away. It is always interesting for me to ask the guys what they are doing every year and this year is interesting once again. Here is the breakdown –
Eliot went with the Oberlin Orchestra to China and will be spending the rest of the month on campus preparing for auditions.
Joe is on-campus working in Professor Braford’s neuroscience lab working on research studying neural growth as influenced by caloric restriction.
Sam is also on campus working with Oberlin High School students on their college search process through the Ninde Scholars program.
Billy is in Shanghai, China interning at an IT company.
Ben is interning at the Houston Animal Hospital.
Our three freshmen all went to their respective homes this winter term for their projects.
Charlie is in Cleveland doing an internship with a company helping plan a big event for the end of the month.
Logan is at home in Hawaii volunteering at a hospital blood bank.
And last but not least, Alex is home in southern California doing an internship at a law firm.
As you can see, our guys have very different interests and have gone all over the country (and beyond) for Winter Term. We start practice February 1st and are looking forward to the spring season.
