On-Campus Recruiting

One of the most effective methods for recruiting students is to develop and maintain a visible presence on campus. You can connect with students at Oberlin College by utilizing the On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) program, which runs during the months of September—November and February—April.

Whenever possible, please give us at least two weeks notice when requesting OCR dates.
