Learning and Lambda: Celebrating the Oberlin Lambda Experience!
October 10-12, 2014


Come Out and Join Us for a fabulous weekend, which will take place October 10-12, 2014. This reunion, celebrating Learning and Lambda at Oberlin College, will include a welcome reception with faculty, staff and special guests at the Koppes-Norris House, hosted by Dean Eric Estes; workshops and panels; a reception hosted by the Multicultural Resource Center with faculty, staff and students; an archives exhibition of Lambda memorabilia; social gatherings; and much more.

Preliminary schedule here.

HOUSING:
A block of rooms has been reserved at La Quinta Inn & Suites in North Olmsted, OH. To reserve a room, please call La Quinta directly at 440.734.4477 and request a room for the “Oberlin Lambda Alumni Reunion.” Rooms must be reserved by September 26, 2014. The rate is $79 per night (plus tax), for either two double beds or a king bed. PLEASE NOTE: Due to cost, we will be unable to provide transportation between North Olmsted and Oberlin for reunion activities. If you plan to stay at La Quinta, we recommend renting a car at the airport, or sharing a rental car with another reunion attendee.

ADDITIONAL LODGING OPTIONS:
Oberlin boasts a variety of B&Bs located within 5 miles of campus. Some offer typical B&B-style lodging at a price range of $80-$200/night. Others are informal networks that match visitors with nearby hosts who open their homes to guests at a price range of $60-$90/night, with the proceeds benefitting local organizations. Traditional hotels and motels can also be found in Amherst, Elyria, and North Olmsted. For a complete list of in-town B&B options and traditional hotels/motels in the area, please visit the Oberlin College website at http://new.oberlin.edu/visitor/.

FYI: the B&B networks run by Oberlin Christ Episcopal Church (coordinated by Midge Brittingham ’60, former Executive Director of the Alumni Association and long-time friend of OLA) and the Oberlin Unitarian Universalist Fellowship have confirmed that all hosts in their networks are LGBTQ-friendly, if not active in the community themselves.
