A first-year TIMARA student's handcrafted soundboard and belongings sit in a sprawling bundle on the walkway in front of Noah Hall. The mound of shoes, luggage, blankets, and bins was a familiar site around campus this week as students unloaded vehicles and moved into residence halls.

Move-in days brought all members of the student body back to campus on September 28 and 29, including those in the Class of 2025 who are 892 strong. In this week’s photo series we take a walk around campus as first-year, double-degree, transfer, and returning students settle in.

See more move-in days photos on Oberlin’s Flickr page.
