Oberlin students have recently been shocked by plans to renovate Wilder that involve demolishing WOBC. Students are fearful for the station’s future - not because of its place at the center of campus life or its independent programming, but rather because of the threat to WOBC’s sacred parchment— the wall graffiti. For it is on these walls that students have engaged in the kind of dialectical argumentation that simply isn’t available in classes or books or whatever. So in the interest of maintaining this vital piece of institutional memory, we at The Grape will provide a selection of WOBC wall graffiti for eternal preservation.
