Oberlin College invites diverse students to visit – free of charge!

By Kaitlynn Hamby, intern, Department of Communications and Community Outreach

In its Multicultural Visit Program, Oberlin College offers selected high school seniors an all-expenses-paid trip to its campus. During the program, participants stay overnight with current students, attend classes, visit professors, and participate in admissions and financial aid workshops.

Oberlin College encourages seniors from diverse backgrounds, such as American Indian, Alaska Native, black/African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander, to apply. They also encourage applications from low-income students and students who will be the first in their families to go to college, regardless of their cultural and/or racial background. They’re looking for high-achieving seniors who are serious about Oberlin and their education.

Applicants can apply to one of three upcoming weekend visits in the fall:

Weekend visit                    Application deadline

October 8-10, 2015            September 14, 2015

November 12-14, 2015       October 19, 2015
