Oberlin College is a private liberal arts college in Oberlin, Ohio, noteworthy for having been the first American institution of higher learning to regularly admit female and black students. Connected to the college is the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the oldest continuously operating conservatory in the country. The college's motto is "Learning and Labor."

Oberlin is considered by some to be a point of interest in the birth of electronic music, hosted the first public film screening by Thomas Edison, and is notable for having more alumni who earn PhDs than any other liberal arts college in the nation.

Oberlin is a member of the Great Lakes Colleges Association and the Five Colleges of Ohio consortium.
