Connect with Fellow Alumni

If you're looking to be in touch with other Obies, the following resources may be helpful. 

Fill out the following form with information regarding your request for contact. Your form will be received by the Office of Alumni Engagement and within one business day, in most instances, a staff member will contact the alum noted on the form to let them know you would like to be in touch, share your contact information (with your approval), and/or ask them to reach out to you directly to provide permission for the alumni office to share their contact information with you. You can also contact the office at (440) 775-8692 to begin this same process.

OberLink, Oberlin's career networking platform connects alumni and Oberlin students with one another in valuable and intentional ways (OberLink replaced Wisr on January 1, 2023). If the alum you are searching for is also a member of OberLink, you can look up their name and contact them directly through the platform. OberLink also provides an opportunity to talk about your career path, share advice, and become a resource for students and alumni alike. Oberlin alum-to-alum job postings will also become a feature of OberLink in the future. Click here to join OberLink.
