Culture

Team Dinners

We regularly have team dinner after Friday practices at the Mandarin, Oberlin's local Chinese restaurant. These dinners give the team members opportunities to socialize with each other outside of practice and outside the context of fencing. All team members are always invited and encouraged to join! Even Johnny occasionally joins us!

 

Enter the Party Czar

One member of the team-usually an upperclassman-is designated the party czar, the host with the most, who organizes team get togethers. Past events have included Halloween costume parties, potluck dinners, and Lord of the Rings extended edition showings. Parties are another opportunity for fencers to socialize outside of practice, and team members of all ages are encouraged to attend!
