Commencement 28 May 2013
Oberlin College’s graduating Class of 2013 numbers about 750 students. These graduates will in the same day join the ranks of some 40,000 alumni during this year’s Commencement/Reunion Weekend.
Reunion weekend is full of traditional class and affinity group gatherings and symposiums led by returning alumni experts, plus such unconventional activities as the grand piano extravaganza and co-op lunches. And everyone enjoys performances by OSteel, the Obertones, and OCircus! When Commencement unfolds on Monday, graduating seniors don message-laced mortarboards or funky hats and wear black robes (or not). This joint affair is perhaps the largest campus event open to all members of the Oberlin community.
