The Many Faces of Oberlin
This issue of the Oberlin Alumni Magazine puts its editorial finger on the pulse of where the College is right now in terms of alumni, student, and College outreach efforts--not only to the Oberlin community, but to the world.

In this issue you will see what our faculty and alumni think about the Internet and its effect on social behavior and interaction with family and friends. You'll see how WOBC, the student-run radio station, has opened its microphones to local middle- and high-school students as it celebrates 50 years on the air.

And another kind of outreach--from alumni to students--gave many young people a month-long internship during Winter Term working with alums in their fields. In fact, offering expanded career services for students, and alumni, too, is a topic of renewed focus at Oberlin, as a new committee created by the Alumni Council works to enhance and expand programming.

The TV king of sitcoms, Jim Burrows '62, was on campus in March, holding workshops for students. There's an article here about his outreach to television's mass audience.

Planet Earth is something I personally feel very deeply about, and wrote at the turn of the millennium. I hope you will share my view on the fragility of our world and the responsibility each of us has to care for it.

And while we are celebrating outreach, I want to thank all of you who have responded so generously to the College's most ambitious campaign ever--The New Oberlin Century. We are midway through our quest for the donors who will help us continue to do what Oberlin does best--illuminate the lives of our students and reach out to others who need us. Heading this campaign has been one of the most satisfying activities I have ever undertaken. I hope you will join me in supporting our institution to help fulfill this mission.
