Reflections from Parents and Family Weekend: November 9-11, 2012
Parents and other family members came to Oberlin for a weekend of informal gatherings with faculty, staff, and students to learn more about the Oberlin community and the academic and cultural activities, programs, and resources available to your student.
It's hard not for this mother and daughter to smile (photo at left) when the reception welcoming them to campus featured a performance by OSteel, Oberlin’s popular steel drum band. View a few more photos from the concert in the OnCampus photo gallery.
