Welcome Home 28 August 2013
An incoming student carries her belongings into Dascomb during Orientation week. Dascomb is one of three residence halls at Oberlin, along with Barrows and Robert Lewis Kahn halls, reserved for first-year students as part of the First Year Residential Experience (FYRE).
FYRE programming includes a range of academic, social, and personal development activities to help new and transfer students transition to college life and build community. Students might engage in birthday celebrations, or attend a First Lecture, in which a faculty member recounts lessons from his or her first year of college.
