Personal Golf Carts

As many of you know, there was a time in our previous SI home that Kenyon College allowed people to bring personal golf carts that they had rented, then for our last couple of years there, they had changed policy.  This year we got a request from an SI’er to bring a personal cart. Since we are in a new home, we asked. Oberlin will allow personal carts.  The college requires anyone bringing a cart onto campus to have liability insurance. In addition, SIPC has […]

Letter to the Community

Dear SI Community: For a second year I must tell you that our theme speaker has regretfully cancelled.  Rev. Abhi Janamanchi has notified me that he is attending to an ongoing family crisis and will likely be occupied during SI week.  After speaking to him at length we both agreed that, given the nature of the circumstances, he should concentrate on navigating his family through a difficult time. Our loss of a theme speaker is unfortunate, but we knew from our experience last year that […]

OMDSI Cost Estimator

Wondering how much heading to Summer Institute will cost your family? What if you want A/C? What if you sleep past breakfast every day? Does that affect your cost? Yes, it can. Use this tool to get a good idea of how much SI will cost you to attend this year. Disclaimer: We’ve done our best to make this tool accurate, but if there is a difference between this tool and the registration system, the registration system wins.

OMDSI 2015 Brochure!

OMD Summer Institute – it’s not too early to think about it, or to help others get there this summer!

Greetings, Summer Institute Friends! While many of us are coping with more snow, snow days from school, and wearing our snow boots for yet another day – I’ve decided it’s high time we start thinking a bit about Summer Institute. I see two reasons for us to collectively begin thinking about SI if we aren’t already: Today is January 12, 2015. This year’s SI begins exactly 6 months from today! Yes, indeed – we will return to Oberlin, OH for SI on July 12, 2015 […]

Thank You!

The committee received so many awesome workshop proposals, and they have some difficult decisions ahead of them.

We need your opinion!

We were doing a lot of things for the first time (or at least in a new way) this year, and while some things worked, some things probably didn’t, and there is always room for improvement. Continue reading →
