Oberlin College

Oberlin College is a selective private liberal arts college in Oberlin, Ohio, noteworthy for having been the first American institution of higher learning to regularly admit female and black students. Connected to the college is the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the oldest continuously operating conservatory in the country. The college’s motto is “Learning and Labor.” While its school colors are often casually referred to as “crimson and gold,” they are actually cardinal red and mikado yellow. Those colors were formally designated for the college by a faculty committee in 1889 and were drawn from the family coat of arms of John Frederick Oberlin. They remain in the official registry of school colors maintained by the American Council on Education. Oberlin is known for having more alumni who earn PhDs than any other liberal arts college in the nation.

Oberlin is a member of the Great Lakes Colleges Association and the Five Colleges of Ohio consortium.

Oberlin’s nearly 3,000 students, nearly 2,400 are enrolled in the College of Arts & Sciences, a little over 400 in the Conservatory of Music, and the remaining 180 or so in both College and Conservatory under the five-year Double Degree program.
