The Student Union staff works to create a sense of community within the college environment and to provide opportunities that support the development of the whole student outside the classroom. Its programs and services strive to meet the social, cultural, educational, spiritual, and recreational needs of all members of the Oberlin College community.
The Student Union provides opportunities for students to develop leadership skills and abilities, and supports opportunities for creativity and the free exchange of ideas and opinions. Two vital sources of information regarding Student Union services and activities are the Student Union office in room 111, and the Hales Annex.
The Oberlin College Student Union is a member of the Association of College Unions International (ACUI). The ACUI brings together college union and student activities professionals from hundreds of schools worldwide.
