two alumnae discussing their work

Alumni Conversations

Alumni Conversations support events at Oberlin College that bring distinguished alumni to campus for panel discussions, lectures, performances, career conversations, and more. Past visits have featured New York Times best-selling author Peggy Orenstein ’83, politician and attorney Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ’92, musician and drummer of Deerhoof Greg Saunier ’91, and southern writer Kiese Laymon ’98. 

Funding for this speaker series is provided in part by the Office of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving in partnership with academic departments, programs, and student groups through the Alumni in Service to Oberlin College program.
