The largest performance space on campus with seating for 1,200, Finney Chapel stands at the heart of Oberlin's intellectual and musical life. When completed in 1908, the chapel became noted for its excellent acoustics. Architect Cass Gilbert's Romanesque arches and oak pews give the place a grand majesty, while a monumental C.B. Fisk pipe organ lends a genuinely soulful feel.

I loved this entire convocation - thanks for procuring such a high-profile, fantastic convocation speaker as usual! I strongly believe that any Oberlin student who has the time to attend the convocations not only ought to go, but is obligated to do so - especially something as interdisciplinary and fundamental as yesterday's event with Editor Baquet.

An incredible third convocation and one of my all time favorites! I am a second year and I've been to every convocation Oberlin has offered, so I speak with a fair degree of relativity! This Radiolab team is phenomenal, effervescent, hilarious, intelligent, entertaining, and highly enlightening! I learned stuff, had fun, talked with cool students and professors, and just had a wonderful time. An excellent way to kick off the fourth week of the semester/ end the third week as everything gets more intense...
