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.
