This may be your first experience with a student going away to college, or you may be quite familiar with the college process. Either way, we welcome you to the Oberlin community and invite you to make a personal—or virtual—visit to discover the ways in which we seek to nurture your student’s academic, intellectual, and social development. Use this site as a quick reference for key campus offices, announcements, and campus happenings.
