The 183rd Oberlin College and Conservatory Commencement exercises took place Monday, May 23, in Tappan Square. Photographers Pang Fei Chiang and Yevhen Gulenko captured the moods of the day, from the time the graduating students assembled in Finney Chapel until they exited the square, degrees in hands.

This gallery is a sampling of photographs from the morning of Commencement. A full album of photos from this event can be seen on Flickr. A full collection of Commencement/Reunion Weekend photos is available at this link.

A video of Commencement 2016 in its entirety will be uploaded to the Oberlin College YouTube page in the coming weeks.
