Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Oberlin College is operating as a remote campus. However, the community at Oberlin can continue to thrive despite the distance through our distance programming initiative called ‘‘RemObies!’’

Oberlin's Division of Student Life is dedicated to engaging students and building a strong-knit Oberlin community throughout the rest of this semester. See the expandable sections below for information regarding different opportunities to connect with Oberlin.

  • On-Going Programs
    • Oberlin Remote Learning E-Guide

Making a plan and adjusting your study habits can help you feel more in control. We hope that this guide will help you navigate this transition as smoothly as possible.
    • Library Resources for Remote Teaching and Learning Guide
    • Productivity Tutoring
      • Connect with a peer productivity tutor for one-on-one support with things like figuring out how to stay focused on academics while working remotely, connecting with campus resources remotely, and mapping out a schedule for the week that includes time for academics, rest, and family/friends.

    • T3 Performance At-Home Workouts - T3 Performance, who works with Oberlin College students for strength and conditioning, has an awesome database of at-home workouts! Click the link for more.
  • Community Engagement Opportunities
    • Apollo Theatre - "Cleveland Cinemas has joined forces with some of our distribution partners to bring a selection of films to your home while our theatres are closed. Unlike films you may watch on streaming services at home, buying a ticket to watch one of the titles in our Virtual Screening Room directly benefits a local business and will help protect a lot of local jobs."
