Leslie Braat

Having grown up in a nearby Cleveland suburb and having been with Oberlin admissions since 1998, I consider myself a "pseudo-Obie." As a firm believer in the value of education, I have earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in psychology at the University of Toledo and doctorate in higher and post-secondary education at the University of Michigan. After attending large state universities, I truly appreciate the individual attention Oberlin students receive from our faculty.

I’ve been working in college admissions for many years and love working with students and their families in the college search process. Although I work out of a regional office (aka, home) in the Chicago area, I hope to meet you when I travel to New York’s five boroughs and Westchester County.

I spend a lot of my free time cheering on the sidelines for my sons’ football, basketball and baseball games. I love going to art shows, theater productions, and reading. I’m always on the hunt for a great book, so let me know if you have any “must reads”.

Students who wish to pursue topics outside of traditional courses, an important alternative is available in the Experimental College (ExCo). Founded in 1968, ExCo is a student-run organization that sponsors courses (for limited academic credit) taught by Oberlin faculty, students, administrators, and residents. Rock climbing, performance swing, astrology, 16-mm film production, jump rope, bike mechanics, henna body art… you name it, ExCo may have a class about it.
