Visit Programs

Visit programs are a great way to get to know Oberlin! However, if you are not able to attend one of the programs below, visit opportunities are offered most days of the week. Please contact us at with any questions. We are looking forward to welcoming you to campus!

Multicultural Visit Program

The Multicultural Visit Program (MVP) is a selective, all-expenses-paid visit program for high-achieving high school seniors who have not yet had the opportunity to visit campus. We encourage applications from students from diverse backgrounds such as Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Hispanic/Latino/a, or Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. To support socioeconomic diversity, the selection committee will also consider students from families with limited financial resources, regardless of cultural or racial background, as well as those who are among the first in their families to attend college (first generation). Visit the MVP website to learn more and apply.

    Did You Know

    A tradition since the 1990s, Oberlin Conservatory of Music's Jazz Forums encourage jazz studies students to take center stage at the college-owned Cat in the Cream Coffeehouse as part of a small group ensemble. A feedback session that follows each set yields instant praise or critique. This type of studio class offers valuable learning experiences while building confidence among young musicians.
