Vintage Photos from Oberlin College in 1970

As the old saying goes, "the more things change, the more they stay the same."

I'd say these photos from Oberlin College definitely fit the bill. Aside from the obvious fashion differences (Bell-bottoms! Paisley shirts!), the students of yore could pass for today's youth. The only other major difference? There was a revolution going on: co-ed dorms were becoming the norm! Apparently, though, not much else has changed, which is sort of comforting when you think about it.

What was your college experience like, friends? Are you in college now? If so, what are you studying? If you could go back and change one thing about those pivotal years, what would you change and why? xoxo

  1. Well I went to uni in the late 90s so these photos are very nostalgic for me (not too much difference between uni in the 70 or 90s I don't think). And I wouldn't change a thing, was the time of my life :D

  2. Sigh. College has very mixed reviews for me. My first year I got SO homesick and this caused me to have issues with friends and the guy I was dating. I really wish I had waited a year to go off to school. But I do have some good memories!


Your lovely comments make my day so much sweeter! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
