150th Anniversary of the Oberlin Review Alumni Reunion

We are excited to announce that The Oberlin Review will be celebrating its 150th anniversary in April of 2024. As part of its legacy, we want you to come celebrate with current students of the Review in a full day of on-campus events on Saturday, April 13th, 2024. Events will include a student Q&A session, a panel with special alumni speakers, and an evening gala held in the Oberlin Hotel. Talk journalism and the Review Style Guide with current students, interact with the Review’s archives in a special edition newspaper and exhibit, laugh at old photos and quotes on the walls of the Burton Hall basement office, and reunite with friends.
