Commencement Celebration Details

College of Arts and Sciences

The Oberlin ethos encourages cross-discipline exploration that breaks down boundaries and allows students to find—or create—their own paths. See where your path might lead.

Conservatory of Music

Music is in Oberlin’s DNA. We are the only major music school in America that focuses almost exclusively on undergraduate education. Our programs, classes, and performance opportunities create an ideal environment for developing the complete musician. 

Experience Oberlin, Virtually

We have suspended all admission-related campus visits and admitted student events until further notice due to COVID-19 and the emphasis on the safety of our community. While we are unable to welcome you to campus, we hope that you will engage with us through our virtual information sessions, virtual tour, and more.
