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 Amber Benford, Walter Novak, and Cheryl Porter 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 Saturday, May 21. A full album of photos from this day can be seen on Flickr. A full collection of Commencement/Reunion Weekend photos is available at this link.
