What? Commencement/Reunion Weekend in 2017 won't be during Memorial Weekend?

Correct: Mark your calendars for May 19-22, 2017

Oberlin College faculty approved changes to the academic calendar in 2012. Officials wanted to lengthen the reading period, close the gap between the end of New Student Orientation and the beginning of classes, reduce the time between the end of winter term and the beginning of the second semester, and end the second semester earlier.

As a result of these changes, Commencement will not always be on Memorial Day. Instead, Commencement will now be held the fourth Monday each May.

In some years the dates will coincide, such as in 2018, when Memorial Day will also be on the fourth Monday. In 2017 and other years, Commencement/Reunion Weekend will occur the weekend before Memorial Day. We will continue to prepare for a memorable weekend with Commencement, class/cluster reunions, the Allen Memorial Art Museum Centennial, and much more. Please plan to join us.
