Have Five Minutes? Send a Postcard to Oberlin M.A.I.L.
We all remember what it was like during our first year at Oberlin: adjusting to college life, stressing as the first big projects loomed, and looking forward to fall break. It can be easy for students to forget that they are part of a wider Oberlin community that will always be a resource for them. You can make a difference in the life of an incoming student in just a few minutes with Oberlin M.A.I.L.!
Through Wednesday, October 1, the Alumni Office will be collecting postcards from alumni across the world with words of encouragement for students. As midterm week approaches, we will send each incoming student a postcard. It’s a simple but powerful way to connect with the next generation of alumni and make a difference for a stressed-out student.
