About Us

Ranked consistently among the nation’s top liberal arts schools, Oberlin College is committed to rigorous academics, artistic and musical excellence, and social justice. Founded in 1833, Oberlin was the first institution of higher education in America to adopt a policy to admit students of color (1835) and the first college to award bachelor’s degrees to women (1841) in a coeducational program. Oberlin’s distinct history of challenging intellectual and social conventions shapes the student experience today, which fosters strong bonds among a diverse community of bright and talented students from around the world. Oberlin College’s picturesque, 440-acre campus is home to a world-class Conservatory of Music, one of the top-5 college art museums in the country, a state-of-the-art Science Center, and an environmental studies center that was among the first to serve as a national model for “green” architecture.
