Welcome to the Class of 2014! I remember so vividly this time last year. High school was over, work was going steadily, and HOLY COW, HOW MANY PAIRS OF SOCKS SHOULD I BRING TO OLIN?! Back-to-school sales were in full swing, though summer had barely begun, and I was worried I would miss out if I didn't jump right away. But it's hard to know what one should bring to school, especially when most people are coming from out of state.
You should be hearing from the Office of Student Life soon, but I wanted to offer some...anecdotal advice from your classmates. I asked fellow Oliners for their input. The following is a rough collection of these tidbits. Read with a scrutinizing eye; every person will want something different, but this should be a good starting point.
