Hey Obies!Four other seniors and I just launched a Kickstarter to fund our project, LumenEd. Over the past two years, we've developed a battery-powered, 3G smart projector with for classrooms without access to internet or electricity in the developing world. The device also comes with a camera on the back to create a PenPal program with schools in the States. The program fosters an interaction between two sets of kids who will likely never have the opportunity to interact.We need your support to reach 100 classrooms in the US, India, Ghana and Senegal by the end of this year. It would mean a lot if you could check out and share our Kickstarter!bit.ly/lumenedkickstarter

I'll be moving out and looking for someone to replace me around May 1st, possibly a little sooner if you're eager. It's a small room without much light (the window faces another part of the building) but you'd have it to yourself. There are three other people in the apartment, all men in their late 20s and early 30s. They'll make the final decision about who gets the room and might prefer to keep it all guys of roughly that age, but the only real requirement is to be laid back, at least in apartment interactions. Rent is $625 a month, plus utilities which have been running about $40 a month. The room will already have a mattress, a clothes rack, and some plastic drawers. Great location a block away from the Franklin Ave. subway, which is on the 2, 3, 4, 5, and S. Twenty minutes to Manhattan. Lots of bars, restaurants, and coffee shops around, and a laundromat down the block. Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum are also nearby.

Hi! I'm a graduating senior and am looking for a job in politics for after graduation. I'm interested in communications and research, and I like electoral politics at this point -- but I'm certainly open to ideas about political jobs outside of electoral politics. I believe strongly in supporting women and young progressive candidates, and I'm fascinated by cities. In terms of policy areas, I'm open to almost anything, but I'm especially interested by transportation, civil rights,  and education policy. I have some experience working with communications and research on campaigns. Location-wise, I'd like to be in DC, but I also love Boston and I have a crush on New York City. If anyone has any ideas about jobs I should apply to, organizations that I should learn more about, or people that I should reach out to, please let me know! Thank you so much.

Hi! I'm looking for housing for 10 weeks this summer in Oakland. I have a part-time job at Jewish Voice for Peace already, but looking also for something else - preferably outside, on my feet, or dancing - to fill the time. I don't have housing yet, and it would be awesome if anyone knew anyone who was willing to house Oberlin students.

Hey all,My current lease is up at the end of May, and I'm looking for one or two people to live with in Philly. I found my current house and housemates through Craigslist and it didn't work out well - I thought this time around I should try not to live with total strangers, and instead seek out someone more compatible. A little about me - I was class of 2013 and I now work as an advocate in a mental health crisis center. Nonsmoking, female, more of a cat person than a dog person (though I'm not personally going to have a cat, I would welcome a feline addition to the household). Like I said in the title, I'm introverted and really value having my own space - although not to the extent that I never see or interact with my housemate(s). I'd love to be friendly and spend time together, but I see home as a place where I can recharge and be alone when I need to be.Basically, if you found that being in a co-op was a little too social for you, we might get along! If you need a housemate and think we might be a good match, contact me and maybe we can meet up for coffee or something.As far as apartment specifics - I love the Fairmount, Queen Village, Italian Market, and Passyunk neighborhoods. Hoping to pay no more than $1400 a month for a two-bedroom.
