High schools across New England, and several other parts of the country, are enjoying February vacation this week, resulting in a steady flow of prospective students and parents into the Olin Admission Office. We're excited to have visitors again after the winter lull and will do our best to make ourselves available to answer any questions you may have about the College and our one-of-a-kind admission process.
At Olin, we're coming up on the second of our three consecutive Candidates' Weekends beginning this Friday afternoon. These weekends require intense planning and preparation, and we rely on the entire Olin community, especially our students, to make them happen. That is why, when you visit Olin this week, you'll be taking a self-guided tour of campus - or you could opt for our QR code guided tour of campus!
Our regular campus tours will begin again in mid-March - Monday, March 12th to be exact - after we've all had the chance to catch our breath from Candidates' Weekends. But don't fret - Olin students are a passionate bunch, and if visiting campus this week I encourage you to be outgoing and approach our students with your questions about their experiences here. Enjoy lunch in our Dining Hall, sit and chat with current students. Sometimes the most illuminating experiences occur when you remove the guise of formality.
Enjoy your days off and safe travels!
