Obies Happy Hour Oberlin Club Event

So Many Ways to Stay Connected

Alumni clubs are geographically based groups of Oberlin alumni, supporters and friends. They exist to promote the college through communications, community relations, current and future student outreach, camaraderie, career networking, continuing education and much more. Oberlin clubs across the United States & in London, UK connect fellow Obies and friends with each other and the college.

Strengthen Your Ties

Connect with fellow Obies and friends in your area by becoming involved with your local Oberlin Club today!

Oberlin Clubs host a variety of events ranging from young alumni happy hours to community service projects, to programs featuring Oberlin faculty & administrators and much, much more!  Two popular events are the Oberlin Summer Picnics welcoming admitted students to the Oberlin family and the annual Alumni Day of Service where alumni, students and friends throughout the country have the opportunity to participate in a community service project.

Summer Picnics

Summer PicnicIn cities across the country, students and their parents are invited to join local Oberlin alumni for an annual Summer Picnic.  Summer Picnics are an Oberlin tradition that allows students and their parents to meet local alumni and to ask questions about campus and student life to those who have experienced it firsthand!

Contact your Regional Alumni Club for more information or to volunteer! We hope you can join us at a Summer Picnic celebration for the incoming class of 2019!

Oberlin Cares Alumni Day of Service

DC Cares 2014Take part in an extraordinary annual event that will unite Oberlin alumni, students, parents, faculty, and staff around the country in volunteering for an important service project that gives back to the local community.

Every alumni club is encouraged to participate in a community service event on that day. Clubs can select their own projects to work on that are specific to their alumni and community needs. This year, we hope to expand our list of participating cities.
