A small, highly acclaimed liberal arts college in the middle of Ohio, Oberlin has long been at the forefront of social and political progressivism. It was the first college in the country to admit Black students (1835) and the first to become co-educational, admitting women in 1837. It is not surprising many notable Oberlin grads can be found in academia, education, journalism, law, government and politics.
