A Free Visit To Oberlin

Oberlin's Multicultural Visit Program (MVP) is a selective, all-expenses-paid visit program for high-achieving high school seniors. 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 socio-economic 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). 

This is a selective program that seeks students serious about Oberlin and their education. High school seniors accepted to the program receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Oberlin to stay in residence halls, tour the campus, visit classes, attend admissions and financial aid workshops, and meet current students, professors, and staff.

Oberlin wins, 12-6. Since then, interscholastic sports programs have grown and the college now supports 21 varsity men's and women's teams.
