An open grassy field on the north side of campus, the North Quad is surrounded on all sides by residence halls and the Oberlin Science Center, and is home to the Wisdom Tree, a large oak around which people gather to socialize. North Quad is a great place for Frisbee, soccer, kickball, rugby, football, or any kind of physical activity, or just doing some reading or relaxing in the sun. At the northernmost point of the Quad are picnic tables and chairs for students to eat or study outside.
