Important Announcement

To our prospective students and families:

We understand how important the college search is to you. We love introducing Oberlin to future Obies and for many families that means visiting our campus. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the emphasis on the safety of our community, we have suspended all admission-related campus visits and admitted student events until May 1. This includes daily campus tours, information sessions, and any event for admitted students.
