Creativity meets language on a campus that loves mixing it up. Ranked in the top 25 National Liberal Arts Colleges in U.S. News and World Report’s 2011 college rankings, Oberlin is home to both a liberal arts college and a conservatory of music; old stone facades and modern buildings; open greens and gardens dotted in trees. The campus features two field houses, a sports and recreation facility, a football field, and outdoor athletic fields spanning three blocks of the town. Oberlin’s Allen Memorial Art Museum hosts collections that place it among the top five college art museums in the nation. Located next to the town of Oberlin and thirty-five miles southwest of Cleveland, Academies at this location will enjoy field trips to local language-specific events and attractions.
Founded in 1833, Oberlin was the first institution of higher education in America to adopt a policy to admit students of color and the first college to award bachelor’s degrees to women in a coeducational program. The college bears the name of Jean-Frédéric Oberlin (1740–1826), an Alsatian minister whose pedagogical achievements in a poor and remote area inspired the college’s founders. The college and conservatory sponsor more than 500 concerts and recitals, about 40 theater and dance productions, and two operas each year. U.S. News and World Report ranked Oberlin’s undergraduate teaching as some of the best in the nation.
