Things I Miss About Oberlin
March 23, 2020
I found myself as a person at Oberlin, and I am so grateful for the friends that I have made along the way.
“Oberlin kinda lets you naturally find your passion. Once you figure it out, there are tons of resources. When I was looking for industry positions, I reached out to six or seven alums, and they all got back to me and gave me referrals to the companies they worked for. Oberlin’s alumni network is really great. Everyone wants you to succeed.”
