There are many colleges. There is only one Oberlin. Oberlin offers one of the world’s great undergraduate educations, and we have a long tradition of educating top scholars and musicians. 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. For over 100 years, Oberlin alumni have gone on to earn more PhDs than graduates of any other liberal arts school. And in nearly every career field, our graduates are making an impact and improving our world. An Oberlin education is extraordinary, and each person experiences it differently.
