Welcome to Oberlin College’s 20th annual Day of Service!

Join us to get to know the local area, meet returning student leaders, and engage with local community organizations. The Day of Service includes an orientation to Oberlin and greater Northeast Ohio, participation in a service project, and time to discuss future opportunities for community engagement.

Free lunch is provided.

Please bring your own water bottle and dress to get dirty in closed-toe shoes, long pants, and short-sleeve shirts (Shorts, tank tops, half-shirts, and sleeveless shirts are not permitted.)

Service projects may be indoors or outdoors. This is an excellent opportunity to connect with other incoming students and learn about the community where you will be living during your time as an Oberlin College student.

What Is The Day of Service?

Day of Service (DOS) is the first of many opportunities provided throughout the school year that links students (new and returning) with local organizations in Oberlin.  As part of Orientation Week, we will serve with organizations that address a wide range issues in our region.  Join us to get to know the local area, build relationships with your classmates, meet returning student leaders, and engage with local community organizations.

How Can I get Involved?

Are you a new student? Register online through the New Student Enrollment Form. The earlier you register, the more likely you'll be assigned a site that matches the interests you indicate on the form.

Are you a returning student, faculty, or staff member who would like to help out with Day of Service? Please complete site leader form to indicate your interest.
