The Grape bills itself as "Oberlin's Alternative Student Newspaper."
One of the two main student newspapers, the Grape began in 1999-2000 as a forum for feature-length articles and political commentary. Since then its focus has changed to that of a more traditional alt-weekly, including extensive coverage of the arts and popular music. It is perhaps most infamous for its "Bad Habits" section, which features reviews of pornography, essays on drug use, and mostly-nude centerfolds starring current students. It prints every other Saturday and has a friendly rivalry with the Review.

THE HOTTEST OBERLIN STUDENTS EDIT THE GRAPE.
I was brainwashed against the Grape by a jealous Review writer at the beginning of my freshman year. Upon reading them, though, I realized that the Review was just boring. Adcjordan 22:44, 12 February 2007 (EST)
The Grape has no online presence, and holds fast to the ephemeral quality that once characterized print media in days of yore.
