Oberlin has come up with a new marketing catch phrase. Until recently it was “Think one person can change the world? So do we.” The replacement slogan is "We are Oberlin. Fearless."
Many Oberlin students are not happy with the campaign. They have told the administration that they do, in fact, have fears and they would rather go back to changing the world. I would have to agree. I have an extraordinary friend who graduated from Oberlin. She has truly made her mark on the planet in more ways than one, but is afraid of sitting in the center seat on an airplane.
