Classes of 2008, 2009, 2010

Our 5th Reunion celebration will take place May 23-26, 2014!

We hope you will return to campus during reunion weekend to connect or reconnect with classmates and to experience what continues to make Oberlin a special place five years (more or less) later. It is sure to be a wonderful weekend. Some highlights will include meals with faculty guests, the Champagne Luncheon at noon on Sunday, May 25, and the long-standing tradition of Illumination. Of course, there will be many other special events throughout the weekend, plus time for just hanging out on Tappan Square or any number of favorite Oberlin locations.

So don't delay – mark your calendars for May 23-26, 2014 and start making plans to return to campus for a weekend of friends and fun, as the classes of '08, '09, and '10 join together again. We look forward to seeing you there!

There are a variety of ways to be involved throughout the weekend, from performing, to volunteering to designing fun swag! Fill out our brief survey and let us know your interests!
