The oldest coeducational liberal arts college in the US, Oberlin College was founded in 1833 in Oberlin, OH. Only two colleges operate on this private university’s campus, a College of Arts and Sciences and the oldest continuously operating Conservatory of Music in the nation. Oberlin ranks #7 in the Midwest and #24 in Liberal Arts Universities by Forbes. Oberlin is historically progressive and the Memorial Arch on campus has been a site for activism, as well as protest, for many years.
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.

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.
