Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 1999

Academics Rating

Tremendous academically. Rare for a class to have more 30 people. Classes are traditionally based on discussion, not a professor lecturing. Most of the classes are left leaning. Oberlin has a unique program where students can teach classes in areas of expertise as well. This makes for fun classes based on a variety of topics, like Rave Culture, Beer Brewing, etc., all of which count towards (limited) college credit.

Alumnus - Grad Year 1995

Academics Rating

You can tailor your schedule for how hard you want to work. Depends what you're looking for out of college life. I spent the first 2 years intensively studying a broad array of subjects, and then greatly reduced my workload the final two years, but zeroed in on the subjects I found most interesting.
