Folk legend Arlo Guthrie was the headline act of the campus entertainment during this fall's Parents Weekend (September 26 and 27). He performed his Saturday night concert in a packed Finney Chapel to an enthusiastic and appreciative audience.

When the concert ended the audience applauded tirelessly, until Guthrie finally returned to the stage for two encore numbers. "A jam-packed Finney Chapel loved every last note," said the reporter for The Oberlin Review, the campus student newspaper.
