Welcome to our
Oberlin College & Conservatory
Class of 1969
Thanks for coming! As part of the CRW (Commencement / Reunion Weekend), our 50th Reunion was held on campus May 24-27, 2019, over the Memorial Day holiday. We hope to maintain this website for years so it can serve as our "memory book." See the -Scrapbook section.
If you're new here, you'll see an Announcement below explaining how to join the site. If you've been here before, continue staying in touch with comments on your -Classmate Profile as well as messages to your friends.
Our next big get-together will be a Cluster Reunion together with two other classes, 1967 and 1968, to be held May 26-29, 2023. Save the dates!
The New York Times has posted a 42-minute audio interview with Oberlin President Carmen Twillie Ambar. Host Kara Swisher says, “Colleges across the country are figuring out how Covid has changed the college experience, while parents are struggling to understand why schools haven’t changed their price tag.”
Covid-19 Delays Future Plans.
Some of the recommendations in the "One Oberlin" report, designed to balance the College and Conservatory’s budget in light of the structural deficit, have been put on hold because of the pandemic. However, no new reductions have been added to the plan. The Oberlin Review has an update.
The latest details of daily life on campus are posted to this website.
