College Spotlight: Oberlin College

Do you dream of making the world a better place? If you are a highly accomplished independent self starter looking for a terrific liberal arts college, then Oberlin may be for you. This open campus of many different mixed building styles is located in Oberlin, Ohio (forty minutes southwest of Cleveland, two and a half hours northeast of Columbus). In addition to the traditional areas of liberal arts studies, and a notable environmental studies program with its own total green building, Oberlin’s Conservatory of Music program is top notch and very competitive! Currently under construction is a new Jazz building that will house a full orchestra. If you are considering studying at a conservatory and pursuing a rigorous academic track consider Oberlin’s double degree program. For more info click here.

Don’t Let Summer Pass You By!

While many think of the summer as a time to relax, hit the beach and do anything but something academic, summer is the best time to explore potential academic majors and careers. You can learn more about this at your local library. Take advantage of the down time to up your game. You will be glad you did.

Did You Know?

Looking to apply Early Action (EA) or Early Decision (ED) to college this year? Many high school guidance counselors require students to provide their completed application two weeks prior to the deadline. This allows the guidance counselor enough time to complete the school forms and submit them in a timely manner. For the unprepared student this can be quite a shock. Suddenly that November 15 deadline becomes November 1. The best way to reduce your stress level is to ask your guidance office what they need and when they need it. Less surprise equals a smoother process for you and your guidance counselor.
