Greetings and Instructions from the Dean
Welcome to the Oberlin family!
Congratulations on your acceptance to Oberlin. We are thrilled that you will be joining us this fall, and we very much look forward to meeting you and helping you begin your Oberlin career.
This New Students website is intended to make your preparations to come to Oberlin as easy as possible. You may want to bookmark the website so that you can refer to it easily throughout the summer. Of special note: This particular webpage contains the login to the Big Book of eForms where you can access most of the forms that you are required to submit in June and July.
The deadlines for each form are shown on the eForms Checklist that will appear when you log in, as well as on the form itself. Feel free to contact any of the offices requesting a form from you; office e-mail addresses and telephone numbers appear on each form.
The other sections of the New Students website also contain a great deal of important information that we hope you will find useful as you prepare for your arrival; including essays about an Oberlin education by two professors, one from the College of Arts and Sciences and one from the Conservatory of Music. You may also want to review the academic calendar for 2013-2014, as well as the many other Oberlin documents and informational materials on, or linked from, this website.
Your years at Oberlin, besides being exciting, will be filled with intellectual and personal growth. You will find yourself in an incredibly rich community of scholars, artists, and musicians who will challenge and inspire you to learn deeply, create imaginatively, and become a truly engaged citizen of the world.
Best of luck. Welcome to Oberlin.
Kathryn Stuart, Dean of Studies
