Are you familiar with Oberlin’s Multicultural Visit Program? It provides students of color with an all-inclusive trip to campus during their senior year of high school. (via Oberlin College & Conservatory)

Anonymous asked: I only live about 20 minutes away from Oberlin, and my parents are often at work all day. As a prospie, if I wanted to schedule a campus tour or an interview, would a parent have to be present or would I be able to go on my own?

You are welcome to visit campus with family or by yourself! (And do come visit, it’s a great place to explore, either on your own or with others.)

Alright, so I’ve been thinking of how to put this up for a while and have concluded that the best way would be with a simple preface. Oberlin is the only college that I had the opportunity to do an overnight at with a friend of mine and as a result I am a bit more informed about some aspects of life as an Obie. Still, to keep things level with other reports I’ve given of other colleges, I am going to leave some specifics out, but if you want to know just message me and I’ll respond privately. Still, get comfy, this will be a long one.


Full account here. This is incredibly in depth and amazing. Thanks so much for sharing!

terrafirmaspower:

This school has been my top choice for three years now and even though I’ve visited before (last spring), I’m really excited to go visit again. Even better, this time I’m going to meet the softball team and everything!

This is so incredibly great. Tumbl all of your adventures! Also, check back here tomorrow morning for a massive list of weekend events (it’s gonna knock your socks off how much is happening here over the next three days).

Anonymous asked: Hi Ma'ayan - is there a schedule available yet for the Nov. 9-11 Parents Weekend? (I've looked on the website but haven't found anything). Am trying to book flights but don't know what *time* the events start (on the 9th) and end (on the 11th). Thanks!

We don’t have a copy of the schedule yet, but from examining last year’s schedule (a PDF, mind you), you’ll see that the events are rather open-ended on Friday, with class visits, tours, and open houses starting at 9am through the deans reception at 4:30pm, then there are fun performances and concerts and such in the evening. On Sunday, there are a few events, including the president’s breakfast, a few worship services, and some afternoon activities around campus.

I hope this helps a bit in regards to travel plans, and we can post a list of the events once we know about them!
