Classes of 1958, 1959, 1960

Our 55th 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 55 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 '58, '59, and '60 join together again, after our respective 50th Class Reunions. We look forward to seeing you there!
