Oberlinians know how to celebrate the month of May, ushering it in with a weekend of festivities and closing it with the biggest party of all—Commencement/Reunion Weekend. This year's opening revels on May 3, 4, and 5 went off without a hitch and included the 11th annual Big Parade and Festival, ResEd's Rock the Block, and the 15th annual Folk Fest.

A multi-year capital improvement plan to upgrade Oberlin’s Student Union is officially underway, with work beginning during Winter Term 2023. Wilder Hall, designed by Chicago architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee—designer of the Memorial Arch on Tappan Square—opened in 1911 as a men’s dormitory. In addition to providing housing for undergraduate men, the building was conceived as a meeting and performance place, and has evolved over time into Oberlin’s Student Union.
