In the days leading up to the 182nd Oberlin College and Conservatory Commencement exercises, graduating seniors, their families and friends, alumni, and townspeople gathered to reminisce about times past, celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2015, and discuss the future of our institution and our world.

Photographers Yevgen Gulenko, Anna Norris, Walter Novak, Jennifer Manna, Tony Morrison, Dale Preston, Tanya Rosen-Jones, Scott Shaw, and Yingran Zhang snapped photos at a number of events to help this Commencement/Reunion Weekend live on for years to come.

This gallery is a sampling of photographs from events that took place Friday, May 22, which include the Class of 1965 panel discussion and reception, the Kickoff Dinner Under the Big Tent, the Grand Piano Extravaganza, and Organ Pump: Late Night Music and Antics. Photographs taken at the Commencement/Reunion Welcome Center and the Graduating Seniors' Art Exhibition are also included.

Hand-painted leaves, intricate mosaics, drawings, and other forms of expression cling to the walls of buildings on campus and in the town of Oberlin. In fact, the piece pictured here is located in a space known for expression. Can you guess where it resides?
