Commencement/Reunion Weekend will take place May 22-25, 2015. Commencement exercises will occur rain or shine Monday, May 25, on Tappan Square, at which time arts and sciences and conservatory students will receive their degrees.
Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund, will be this year's Commencement speaker.
In addition to Commencement, the college welcomes alumni and their families for class reunion gatherings and special events.
Oberlin's Commencement/Reunion Weekend features such traditions as Illumination, the grand piano extravaganza, a performance by Oberlin Steel band, and some quirky Oberlin-style mortarboards and outfitting for the academic procession.
Popular events during Reunion often are swing dancing, a 5K fun run and walk through town, and film screenings at the historic Apollo Theatre.
