About the Source

The Source is the homepage of Oberlin OnCampus, Oberlin’s website for the internal campus community. The Office of Communications produces the Source and Oberlin OnCampus for Oberlin College faculty and staff members and students.

The Source reports on institutional developments; the achievements of faculty, staff, and students; town-gown news; and events and opportunities on campus and in the surrounding area of interest to Obies.

Campus members should continue to post information about events—upcoming programs, speakers, lectures, and other social activities—to Oberlin's online Events Calendar.
