Yoon-Chan Kim

Music and education are my great passions. I feel very fortunate then to be at Oberlin, where we celebrate both world-class performing arts and an elite liberal arts education with equal pride and joy.
 
Born and raised in South Korea, I moved to northern California when I was nine years old. I found music as soon as I arrived, and have been playing the flute ever since. I attended Pomona College where I studied politics and music, and discovered the import of education as a student intern in the admissions office. Upon graduation, I returned to Korea on a Fulbright Fellowship to teach English to high school students. I then worked for my alma mater before joining Oberlin College.
 
The wealth of opportunities Oberlin students have astounds me everyday. I am eager to share with you all that we offer, and look forward to a chance to meet you when I travel to Nevada and northern California.

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.
