Two students from the Oberlin Class of 2015 embrace following the conclusion of Commencement exercises held in Tappan Square. They are among 689 arts and sciences and conservatory students who participated in a ceremony that featured remarks by First Lady Michelle Obama and the Commencement address by Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children’s Defense Fund.
The two women addressed graduates, their families and the Oberlin community in the last major event of Commencement/Reunion Weekend. The four-day celebration drew an estimated 4,000 visitors to the campus community.
