Anonymous asked: Is there anywhere we can see what (famous) bands are scheduled to play at Oberlin and who the convocation speakers are?

(Apologies for how long it took me to get to this question, but I wanted to make sure all the things were online and linkable before I answered.)

The Oberlin Arts Guide went up a few days ago, which lists convocation speakers, artist recital series, plus mainstage theater, dance, and opera productions for the 2012-13 school year. If you’re wondering what’s happening at the ‘Sco, they only recently became active on Facebook again (i.e. they are gradually starting to post events that are happening this fall) but checking their group would be a good start.
