Our 65th Reunion celebration took place May 22-25, 2015

We hope you were able to return to campus during reunion weekend to connect or reconnect with classmates while experiencing what continues to make Oberlin a special place 65 years (more or less) later. It was a wonderful weekend. Some highlights included meals with faculty guests, the Champagne Luncheon, and the long-standing tradition of Illumination. There were many other special events throughout the weekend, plus time for just hanging out on Tappan Square or any number of favorite Oberlin locations.
