Oberlin College is a private liberal arts college in Oberlin, Ohio. It was the first American institution of higher learning to regularly admit female and black students.

In 1833, a pair of Presbyterian ministers, John Jay Shipherd and Philo P. Stewart founded Both the college and the town of Oberlin.[2] The ministers named both after Jean-Frédéric Oberlin, an Alsatian minister whom they both admired.

Oberlin's first two presidents were Asa Mahan, and Charles Finney.

Like other colleges that adopted a far-left stance on social issues in the 2010s, Oberlin College saw its enrollment dramatically drop.[3]
