In the days leading up to the 183rd 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 2016, and discuss the future of our institution and our world.

Photographers Pang Fei Chiang, Yvonne Gay, and Yevhen Gulenko 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 20, which include the Champagne Dinner for Alumni and Graduating Seniors, the Class of 1991 Ice Cream Social, the Grand Piano Extravaganza, and Organ Pump: Late Night Music and Antics.
