Peer Advising Leaders
Once you arrive in Oberlin, you will meet your assigned PAL—Peer Advising Leader—from either the College of Arts and Sciences or Oberlin Conservatory. These PALs are trained to support you during your transition to college life—how to get around campus, offices to frequent for academic advising and personal assistance, best places to study alone or with a group, where to buy (or attain for free) essentials, how to manage your time, and much, much more. PALs also help first-year students use Oberlin’s academic and developmental advising system to its full potential.
