Students enjoyed an afternoon of local cuisine, a dunk tank, and a sudden hailstorm at the President’s Welcome Carnival this past Wednesday.

Stretching from the Science Center atrium to the nearby quad, the event invited students of all class years to sample food from community vendors, including the Slow Train Cafe and Dave’s Cosmic Subs. Students tried their hand at ring toss and challenged peers to friendly races through an inflatable obstacle course.

“The Taste of Oberlin was an inventive welcome back celebration where students, staff, and community members got to relax and enjoy good company and excellent food,” College fourth-year Johan Cavert said. “I would love to see it become a recurring Oberlin tradition.”
