Oberlin’s Administration Jumps on the “Friday” BandwagonWhile most people would argue that Rebecca Black’s “Friday” is an annoying but relentlessly catchy song, some administrators at Oberlin College decided to use the song for good instead of evil. For the class of 2011, several administrators, including the president of the college, did a parody/homage of the video. This video, which incorporates scenes from around campus, is a genuinely fun (fun, fun, fun) tribute.
While this wouldn’t be the only reason I would attend Oberlin (if I were looking at colleges), it would certainly factor in my decision! Any school that has administrators who are willing to do this as a tribute to its graduating class has got to be special. Special thanks to Angela S. (current Oberlin student and former Educational Advocates intern) for telling us about this.
