Personally, I Thought They Were Great!

Thank you for printing the personal essays of five of the incoming freshmen. These young people are extraordinary, and I wish them luck in their future endeavors. I found the essays fascinating and would have enjoyed reading more. The diversity of interests represented was uplifting. It reminded me of the many varied interests among my small group of friends at Oberlin. I hope you will consider printing a few essays each year. It really helps this alum feel more connected to the students (even as I humbly wonder if I would still be admitted to Oberlin!)
