{ Hello }

My name is Emily Robinson, and I'm a freshman college student from Moraga, California. I'm still very unsure of my major, but I'm using my indecisiveness as a perfect excuse to explore all that Oberlin has to offer.

I've been studying flute for 10 years, so music has always been a huge part of my life. Unsurprisingly, it has become the focus of my extracurricular life at Oberlin as well. Music has always been the most fun for me when it's relaxing and laid back, so I've been enjoying many opportunities to make music with a multitude of talented people. I'm a member of the Oberlin College Marching Band, and I play in the College Community Wind Ensemble.

When I have a moment of spare time, I make sculptures out of the recyclable crap that I've been hoarding under my bed for the last few months and pursue other random artistic endeavors. Eventually, I hope to start a small business selling my art. Until then, my dorm room will continue to overflow with cereal box robots - and I'm entirely okay with that.

Time to Breathe

Every time I look at my day planner, I get a little bit freaked out. With the 22 credit hours worth of work I am doing this semester, well...my calendar can get a bit crazy.

There's nothing quite like the Oberlin College Marching Band.
