How will your project impact Oberlin?

The Oberlin Club of Washington, D.C. provides year-long opportunities for you to maintain bonds and build new connections to other Obies and Oberlin College through the Club’s sponsorship of career networking, internships, social gatherings, educational programs, and other invigorating activities. The Washington, D.C. area is home to Oberlin’s 2nd largest alumni community and is Oberlin’s most active local alumni organization!

Your support makes it possible for the Oberlin D.C. Club to sponsor programs that bring us together to learn, meet new friends, and contribute to the community. Over the past year your intrepid volunteers organized these events:
  • A prescient conversation with Patrick Clawson ’73, Josh Keating ’07, and Tamara Wittes ’91 on U.S. policy in the Middle East
  • Reflections from Martha Johnson ’74 on public service
  • A visit to and dining at the original Ben’s Chili Bowl
  • Happy hours galore
  • Outings at Wizards and Nationals games
  • Sorting donations at the Capital Area Food Bank
  • Honoring Alan Wurtzel ’55 and welcoming local members of the class of 2018 at our annual ice cream social
  • The Fifth Annual Celebration of Obies in D.C. at The Kennedy Caucus Room Russell Senate Building
Please be an advocate for your D.C. Oberlin Alumni Community! We’ll see you at the next great event!

I don't know how much was given today, but I'm going to assume that at least 16 people sent in checks of at least $25. If it was more than that, let me know.
