The average Oberlin student eats 11.6 meals per week on a meal plan. For students on the 10- or 14-meal plans, this adds up to either wasted or insufficient meals. In order to eliminate unused meal points, ResLife will offer a new 12-meal-per-week plan with 65 dollars in flex points monthly for the next academic year.

Last Saturday, the women and men’s cross-country teams competed at the NCAA Regional meet in Alma, Mich. at Alma College. “I think Regionals went really well and the team did well as a whole,” said first-year Marie Barnett. “The course was very fast and the weather was ideal for running.”

Opera features great voices and bare bods

Political correctness rules our campus: Safer Sex Night has become really safe, lewd humor can only be experienced in the attic of Noah and even the Grape has resorted to such stories as “Lunar Eclipse Disappoints,” though they previously filled the role as the #1 bawdy news source on campus.

Hipsters and hicks withstand beating

What do you get when you cross a group of casual actors, a decent knowledge of pop culture and some cutting satire of wildly inaccurate stereotypes? No, not Mad TV. The result is HellaDeck, Oberlin’s fall musical.
