So maybe I’m just slow, or maybe it’s just a coincidence, but Oberlin’s “Stories” theme resounds of the end of the law & order SVU intro.
“In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad, known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories.”
–In the liberal arts system, sexuality, gender, race, class & (maybe) religious based offenses are considered especially heinous. In Oberlin, OH, the dedicated professors who investigate these vicious intersectional and institutionalized inequalities are members of an elite squad, known as the AAST, CAST, GSF Departments. We are Oberlin. These are our stories *dun dun!*
