Oberlin in a Nutshell

Oberlin is a small town in Ohio, close to Cleveland. It's known for housing Oberlin College, a top liberal arts school. I attended Oberlin College from August 2009 - January 2010. I lived in Oberlin for two months then. While there, I greatly enjoyed the small town atmosphere Oberlin had to offer. Small, but not so small that it drives you crazy. Which is always a good thing.

My Experience?

I will always have a place in my heart for Oberlin, even though I didn't like the college experience I had there. I love the cute little shops, walking or biking everywhere, and running into people I know on the street corners.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Cute small town, "Downtown" with basic needs
  • Cons:"Bubble" atmosphere, lots of cold / wind, sometimes rude people
  • In a nutshell:The home of Oberlin College, and much more
