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.

    From what I could see in a single visit, the town of Oberlin is a beautiful progressive community with a lot of interest in the arts. Oberlin has been a repeated name since the beginning of my college search, and I know the conservatory has a strong, positive reputation. While I don't know a lot about the quality of the music programs or what the faculty are like, the vibe I got from my tour of the schools was one of acceptance and family--I have no doubt that anyone could feel at home here!

    Oberlin is a place filled with open minded folks, activists, free spirits, athletes, artists, environmentalists, poets, and so on. You are pretty much guaranteed to find at least one other person, if not more, who share your passions and frustrations. It's one big supportive community that you won't be able to find anywhere else.

    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.

    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.
