OBIEWeb Upgrade
The Oberlin Alumni On-Line Community is undergoing some exciting upgrades! Beginning in early February 2004, many OBIEWeb features will be enhanced—including the online alumni directory. These upgrades will allow users to create a "personal pals" instant messaging list, an ObieMatch section to identify Oberlinians in your city who share similar interests, and many more new features. We hope to minimize any inconvenience to users during the upgrade process, but should interruptions occur, please contact the Alumni Office at or (440) 775-8692, and/or visit OBIEWeb at

Music Matters
Magnetic Fields, Sleater Kinney, XBXRX, and Black Keys are some of the most sought-after bands on the college music circuit. That groups of this caliber make it a point to play in Oberlin caught the eye recently of Spin Magazine, which rated Oberlin as having the "Best Concert Board." The award was announced in the October issue's First Annual Spin Campus Awards. Behind Oberlin's musical scene are three campus organizations: Concert Board, the Student Union Programming Committee, and Program Board, which researches and books the popular acts that play at campus venues. "Oberlin has a good reputation with bands," says Concert Board member Chris Baker '05. "It's established as being a great place to play a show."
