In the past 180 years and counting, Oberlin College has come to represent the best that liberal arts colleges have to offer. It was the one of the first American college to admit women and people of color, and its academics are regarded as some of the finest in the nation.
Oberlin administers academics through its College of Arts & Sciences and its world-renowned Conservatory of Music. If desired, students can choose to pursue a joint-degree program between these two schools. Programs are available in a variety of subjects, from Neuroscience to Peace & Conflict Studies.
Despite being a smaller school, Oberlin’s campus offers big opportunities. Student life at Oberlin includes more than 20 varsity sports teams, about 150 student clubs, and more than 540 music, theater and dance performances.
As a highly selective institution, Oberlin seeks dynamic, interesting and intellectually motivated students. Admissions requirements for the College of Arts & Sciences include the Common Application (and Oberlin Supplement), high school transcript, SAT/ACT scores and two teacher evaluations. Applicants to the Conservatory of Music must also audition.
Oberlin is committed to making tuition affordable for all of its admitted students. Financial aid opportunities include federal grants and loans, student employment and institutional scholarships, for which all applicants are automatically considered.
100% of students gave Oberlin College 4 stars overall.
Small classes with engaging professors. The down side of Oberlin is that you're in the middle of Ohio. 45 minutes to Cleveland is as close as you get to city life. Winter can be a bit brutal. The campus is small and you can quickly get to know people and find your way around. A great alternative to more prominent schools with an equal or better education. Can be culture shock if you're coming from a big city.
Great small liberal arts college offering real opportunities for deep study of issues that interest you along with a diverse and accepting student body. The campus is beautiful, the facilities top-notch, and the absence of a greek system makes it more inclusive.
