Welcome Class of 2018!

After spending much of the summer wondering about roommates, classes, clubs, making new friends, living in a college community, and what to bring, first-years and transfer students finally get to see what Oberlin College and Conservatory of Music are all about on Move In Day during Orientation week.

Here, Hadass Silver ’18, with the help of her mother Ora Gladstone, begins to make the open double room their own—well, at least half of it. During Orientation, newcomers learn about school policies, familiarize themselves with campus resources and facilities, participate in the Day of Service, and the optional Social Justice Institute—and make lifelong friends.

The major event of the weekend will be the grand opening of the Austin E. Knowlton Athletics Complex Saturday, September 20. The festivites continue that evening when the Oberlin College football team takes on the College of Wooster in the Yeomen's first ever night home game. All are invited to return to campus for the celebration. Photo by Ryan Baker.

Have Five Minutes? Send a Postcard to Oberlin M.A.I.L.

Oberlin M.A.I.L.We all remember what it was like during our first year at Oberlin: adjusting to college life, stressing as the first big projects loomed, and looking forward to fall break. It can be easy for students to forget that they are part of a wider Oberlin community that will always be a resource for them. You can make a difference in the life of an incoming student in just a few minutes with Oberlin M.A.I.L.!

Through Wednesday, October 1, the Alumni Office will be collecting postcards from alumni across the world with words of encouragement for students. As midterm week approaches, we will send each incoming student a postcard. It’s a simple but powerful way to connect with the next generation of alumni and make a difference for a stressed-out student.

Learn how you can participate in Oberlin M.A.I.L.
