Commencement Weekend 2024

Congratulations to the Class of 2024!

The commencement ceremony for Oberlin College and Conservatory graduates took place Monday, May 27.

A weekend of joyful, emotional—and increasingly soggy—graduation and reunion festivities culminated in clearing skies on a beautiful Monday morning, just in time for commencement exercises for Oberlin’s class of 2024. Thank you to everyone who made the weekend a great success, and thank you to our graduates, their families and supporters, and all of our alumni who joined in the celebration. Congratulations, Obies!
