If you are trying to catch a ride home for the holidays, buy a used textbook, find an on-campus job, or recover your orange-colored iPod case you lost in the music library, the Oberlin College Classifieds website is the place to go. Use the classifieds to post your own listings for items you want to sell, rides wanted, a service such as tutoring or music lessons that you can provide, even stuff you want to give away.
You also can use the Oberlin Switchboard, http://switchboard.oberlin.edu, to connect with current students, alumni, faculty, staff, and parents. A post on Switchboard can reach Oberlin people wherever they may be—think the classifieds, but for the greater world. Ask or offer tangible or intangible things to Oberlin people, like posts requesting or supplying advice or conversations, housing or hosting options, goods, or job and internship opportunities.
For campus events, student art shows, local movie listings, important announcements, the weather, and more—check out Oberlin OnCampus, the college’s website for faculty, staff members, and students. Oberlin OnCampus has the classified listings and also features institutional developments; the achievements of faculty, staff, and students; town-gown news; and events and opportunities on campus and in the community at large.
Use the Events Calendar to stay in the know about campus happenings and, with your Oberlin username and password, to post and spread the word about events for groups you may be involved in.
