Anonymous asked: Is it hard to get into Kahn? Are there are a lot of competitive applications?

From the First Year Experience Area Coordinator:

There are at least 200 applications for just under 150 spots each year. So, if you have a quality application that is in by the deadline you have a great chance! 

Plug: if you want to know more about FYRE… you can now follow them on Tumblr, too!

amb-o asked: Ok so I'll be coming to Oberlin real soon like in the following week and my Dad is going crazy with dorm furniture. He wants to get me a mini fridge aand a microwave etc etc. I wanna know how necessary those items are and how late are cafeterias open?

SO SOON. Can’t wait!

Your dad doesn’t need to worry. There will be a microwave in the kitchen of your dorm, which is good because you can’t actually have one in your room. You can have a minifridge, though it’s not necessary because there will be a communal fridge in your dorm’s kitchen as well.

You can rent a microfridge from the college through their rental program, which is a small fridge/freezer/microwave combo that is available in some of the dorms. Read more on the dorms that are capable of these units, pricing, and more on the residential education website.

Information about campus dining service hours can be found on the residential education website. The latest you can get food in a dining hall is 11:30pm.
