Interested in hearing directly from students about Oberlin Conservatory? Meet with current Obies, as well as other prospective students, in our "Con Chats" this fall! These are casual sessions led by current conservatory and double degree students where you can ask questions about campus life, our community, and get to know Oberlin from the student perspective.
