All of my professors have been intelligent, articulate, and clearly enthusiastic about what they're teaching; they have all done a wonderful job of sharing their knowledge about the subject they're teaching.

    This college will open your mind and shift your paradigm. You will be exposed to world class art (Oberlin Conservatory and Creative Writing Department, etc.) You will be exposed to wonderfully diverse community that champions social justice.

    A small liberal arts school with large political ambitions, Oberlin is a school that continually produces leaders on numerous subjects and topics. Many of the teachers have written books that are the standard for teaching their subject nationwide, and they keep good track of how their words fall on their students with most professors handing out hand-made surveys at the end of each semester to improve themselves. Speaking of improving themselves, that's exactly the goal that every Oberlin student has come for, and the vast majority of them find their way wonderfully.

    Oberlin is not nearly as diverse as it like to say it is. It is quite frankly full of posers who think they are everything that they are not. With that being said, despite the slightly terrible people, the academics are fantastic.

    Oberlin College is the best decision I have ever made. The people are fantastic, the classes are fantastic, the vibe is fantastic. If you ever felt like you didn't fit in, Oberlin will prove that you do have a tribe and they are called Obies.

    Accepting and calm with a very welcoming atmosphere. Oberlin is also very open and liberal, despite the country setting. The academics are Ivy League level.

    A fantastic culture of tolerance that works to promote ideas from all areas of the world. Every opportunity is available to any student; nothing is shut off, and this all comes from a school that manages to maintain a great class ratio. There is also a huge emphasis on environmental awareness and a lot of amazing buildings to visit.

    Located in a quaint secluded town, Oberlin College is a uniquely progressive Liberal Arts institution committed to equipping students with the tools and knowledge to affect their immediate environment positively. The affiliated Oberlin Conservatory provides extremely rigorous musical training under some of the most influential professors and guest lecturers, artists, and coaches in the current music scene. With a plethora of independent projects, student run classes, organizations, clubs, activities, and a wholehearted commitment to training and involvement, I could not recommend Oberlin more.

    Oberlin is work-hard, play-hard by definition. During the week, everyone dedicates to their studies, but during the weekend, there are tons of events, from dances to seminars to concerts, you can attend to wind down and have some fun. The academic rigor is a rewarding challenge, as the teachers are of great quality, but you do get to live a little as an Oberlin student.
