Oberlin College strives to provide a safe living and working environment for students, staff, and faculty. Safety on college campuses has become an increasingly important concern nationwide. The college has a host of resources to help students make the transition to college life and the responsibilities that come with this important life change.
Oberlin's Wellness and Health Promotion Services assist students in achieving greater personal health, building stronger interpersonal relationships, and forging a strong sense of community. Individual help on a variety of such topics as alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, fitness, nutrition, sexualized violence and violence prevention, mental health, and stress management are available to students. Outreach programs can also be scheduled for residence halls and co-ops, clubs and organizations, and academic classes.
