  • We are about an hour's drive from Oberlin, but I actively watch the college website to see what concerts are being held at my favorite venue, Finney Chapel. Some are free while others require tickets,...  more »
  • Took a stroll around campus on a nice fall day. It is really lovely. Lots of old buildings and things to see. The campus is right next to the "downtown" part of Oberlin, so it's very easy to see when ...  more »

  • Don't believe the poorly informed below. Oberlin is a wonderful school that values free speech and rigorously prepares you to enter the world after you get your diploma. Unlike a lot of the rabble here, I actually graduated from Oberlin and can attest to its devoted faculty, emphasis on good work, and willingness to approach and debate diverse ideas. I can't imagine what my life would have been like without the education I received here.
  • Oberlin censors truth! "... the board of trustees has voted to dismiss Karega for "failing to meet the academic standards that Oberlin requires of its facility and failing to demonstrate intellectual honesty." This professor RIGHTFULLY labeled Israel and zionists as the perpetrators of 911! Perhaps Oberlin can explain "The 5 Dancing Israelis". For 71 days they were interrogated and FAILED polygraph after polygraph. MOSSAD and IDF agents caught by New Jersey State police! Against FBI warnings, they were released by "born again" and zionist x-tian Baby Bushes regime!! Explain why they stated on Israeli TV after their return, "That they were in N.Y. to document the event." Explain why "lucky" Larry Silverstein gave the order to "pull it" in the controlled demolition of building #7!! Explain why the BBC reported its collapse, 10 minutes BEFORE it was destroyed?!! There is SOOOO much more evidence of a false flag operation and Israeli collaboration!! Oberlin should examie exactly WHAT zionist is!! The vast majority ARE x-tians you idiots!! HOW is pointing to zionists as being responcible "anti-Semitic"?!! The Semitic people also INCLUDES Arabs!! It seems the Board of Trustees needs a WELL ROUNDED, INFORMED and FACTUAL education before determining whether to FIRE professors for speaking about FACTS!!!
  • You really can't sum up 4 years at a school in a short review so I'll just try to suggest something to consider about Oberlin if it's on your short list: the people who make up the faculty and staff. There may be more famous professors out there but the faculty by and large at Oberlin are fantastic and more importantly, they are here for the students. Since Oberlin isn't a big research university, the professors actually teach the classes and are interested and know the students. This is a wonderful thing. The staff and folks who keep the college running day-in and day-out also must be acknowledged - though they rarely do get enough praise. They are wonderful people, always happy to get to know the students in their time there!
  • My cousin used to go to this college, she told me the campus is just full of Bernie bros and first world feminists. she said the campus culture is pretty toxic, thats why she left. she also said don't count on having your Free Speech rights protected here. Your in gulag territory. And to top that off she said when the professors talk about Zionism, every professor turns into Hitler lite. literally every appropriate criticism turns in conspiracy grade mein kampf type rants.
  • This college is a hotbed of bigotry and vicious racism. Some of the faculty are openly anti-semitic. Oberlin is a disgrace to America.
