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.

    Oberlin is a very musical and artistic campus -- there is always something to go to or do on the weekends and even weekdays. There is a lot of work and studying is very important to the students, but like any college campus the students make time for fun. Difficult to get off campus but the downtown is very nice.

    Oberlin College can fit the needs of every different students. The college has a thriving student body that is willing to make accommodations for each students, however, every students must be willing to commit to expressing themselves openly. The college is located in a cool little town that is another community for students to be active in.

    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.
