What Students Are Saying

4.08 Average Rating
There is no question that Oberlin is teeming with rigorous academics. As a conservatory student, I have never worked harder or been more challenged in my life. From observations of the college classes and personal experience in the conservatory, it is clear that Oberlin's curriculum is holistically designed to coincide with other classes in order to provide a complete understanding in your field of study. In addition, the classes are formatted to support individual thinking and personal development.

It's set just right; hard enough that you need to put in some time and pay attention in class, but not so much that your social life is crushed.
Besides, professors are always available and willing in case you find a class particularly tough.

I came from a public high school in the same county (Lorain). I pushed myself in high school, but here I realized you can never be too prepared. Especially being surrounded by so many talented and gifted students.
Johnny from Lorain, OH
Oberlin is a school that challenge its students academically while simultaneously engaging them. The professors are generally great and will work with you as needed. Students may stay up late studying and writing papers, but that's because they care about what they're doing.

Very rigorous but always fun learning.
