Visit Programs

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 about the program.

  • MVP #1: Oct. 27-29
  • MVP #2: Nov. 17-19
  • MVP #3: Dec. 1-3
