National Academy of Sciences Reunion and Symposium

National Academy of SciencesOn October 27 and 28, 2016, 12 alumni who are members of the National Academy of Sciences will return to Oberlin to meet with students, participate in a symposium, and attend the Celebration of Undergraduate Research.

Part symposium and part special reunion, Oberlin and the National Academy of Sciences: Celebrating the Impact and Promise of the Sciences at Liberal Arts Colleges will be an opportunity to celebrate our distinguished alumni, and is meant to raise awareness of and celebrate the sciences at liberal arts colleges.

Currently, 23 members of the National Academy of Sciences earned their undergraduate degrees at Oberlin. It is astonishing for a school of Oberlin’s size to produce so many top scientists. No other liberal arts college comes close.
