It’s nice to meet you! We’re so glad you’re here.

New to Oberlin? Welcome!

For nearly 200 years, Oberlin has offered one of the world’s great undergraduate educations. Here, students pursue multiple passions and interests within a supportive, collaborative community. We focus on undergraduate teaching, hands-on research projects, culturally immersive study away experiences, and world-class music opportunities.

An Oberlin education is extraordinary, and each person experiences it differently. But there are some common themes!
