So Many Ways to Stay Connected
Alumni clubs are geographically based groups of Oberlin alumni, supporters and friends. They exist to promote the college through communications, community relations, current and future student outreach, camaraderie, career networking, continuing education and much more. Oberlin clubs across the United States & in London, UK connect fellow Obies and friends with each other and the college.
Strengthen Your Ties
Connect with fellow Obies and friends in your area by becoming involved with your local Oberlin Club today! Oberlin Clubs host a variety of events ranging from young alumni happy hours to community service projects, to programs featuring Oberlin faculty & administrators and much, much more! Two popular events are the Oberlin Summer Picnics welcoming admitted students to the Oberlin family, and the annual Alumni Day of Service where alumni, students, and friends throughout the country have the opportunity to participate in a community service project.
The Oberlin Alumni Association wants to encourage even more alumni to host events or plan activities that might interest fellow alumni in your area. The Office of Alumni Relations will support individuals interested in hosting an event outside of a traditional “club” model. This will enable more alumni to volunteer to host one event—or multiple events over the course of a year—without the need to officially start and maintain a club.
If you have an idea for a low-cost activity, such as a meet-up, potluck picnic, or professional panel event we would be happy to work with you to create the event. Our office can provide support for events in many ways, including: supporting event planning efforts, sending announcements and notifications, collecting registrations and providing name tags and day of event materials.
If you would like to discuss your event idea in more detail, please contact Brant Fairchild, Associate Director of Alumni Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
