Introduction to Bonner Life serves as an orientation to Oberlin College, the Lorain County Community, and the Bonner Scholars Program. It is designed to give students an opportunity to explore issues relevant to new students in a college environment while learning more about the Bonner common commitments. When students complete the course, they should have a better understanding of the Bonner Scholars Program, Oberlin College, and issues important to the Lorain County community. Additionally, students should be more familiar with a variety of service opportunities and clarify their service and learning objectives.
Introduction to Bonner Life meets once/week for two hours during the fall semester. First-year Bonners are required to enroll.
