Health and wellness are vital for academic success, but college can present unexpected challenges.

For many students, college is their first time living away from home. This experience can include a number of challenges in areas such as social wellness, emotional well-being, and environmental wellness. New students may need to contend with forming new friendships, homesickness, and acclimating to a new area.

Oberlin is committed to helping our students stay well. One of the ways we do this is through Early Alert, an easy-to-use, text-message-based service. Early Alert provides confidential assessment and connects students to resources. Participation in this program is voluntary.

This short video provides an overview of how it works.

Oberlin students can enroll in Early Alert by answering a few brief questions here:
