Oberlin College is a selective private liberal arts college in Oberlin, Ohio, noteworthy for having been the first American institution of higher learning to regularly admit female and black students. Connected to the college is the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the oldest continuously operating conservatory in the country. The college's motto is "Learning and Labor." While its school colors are often casually referred to as "crimson and gold," they are actually cardinal red and mikado yellow. Those colors were formally designated for the college by a faculty committee in 1889 and were drawn from the family coat of arms of John Frederick Oberlin. They remain in the official registry of school colors maintained by the American Council on Education. Oberlin is known for having more alumni who earn PhDs than any other liberal arts college in the nation. - Source: Wikipedia
Oberlin College announced that it will appeal the $31.5 million jury award to Gibson's Bakery over student protests targeting the business, arguing that the verdict sets a "troubling free speech precedent."
The college says those errors led to "wildly excessive verdicts influenced by passion and prejudice."
