Department of Human Resources


Faculty & Staff are encouraged to come together and celebrate their shared identity as members of the Oberlin College community!

The purpose of the “Obie-Spirit Fridays" is to provide an opportunity for faculty and staff to unite and commemorate their collective identity as members of our campus community!  The hope is to achieve a shared identity through various activities such as wearing Oberlin College gear, displaying our school colors, participating in campus events, and other endeavors that reflect our pride in being part of this institution.   

Throughout each semester, we'll be giving prizes for photo submissions that show you displaying your Obie-Spirit! 

Each week, submit your photos here and we'll post your photo and choose a winner at the end of the month!
