Olin MIX & Mingle Fly-In Progam

Olin College of Engineering offers high school seniors with strong potential for Olin's collaborative, project-based engineering curriculum who would not otherwise have the financial resources to visit our campus the opportunity to attend Olin’s Mix & Mingle fly-in program during the month of October. We invite students to nominate themselves, or counselors to nominate students. Nominations will be reviewed by the Olin Admission Office.

The tentative dates for this year's Olin Mix & Mingle fly-in program are October 18-19, 2020*. Students will arrive on a Sunday, stay overnight in an Olin residence hall, and be assigned a student host to take them to classes and activities on a Monday. Due to the small number of Olin student hosts available, our fly-in program is limited to high school seniors and students who for other reasons are planning to enter college in fall 2021. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate nominations for international students at this time.

Nomination forms must be submitted by September 16, 2020, and all materials (including an unofficial copy of the student's transcript) must be received by September 23, 2020 in order for the student to be considered for a fly-in visit to Olin. 

For counselors nominating students, students will be sent an additional form to express their interest in visiting Olin College. For students nominating themselves, your counselor will be sent a counselor nomination form along with information about the program.

Please contact Alia Georges, Assistant Director of Admission & Financial Aid Counselor, at with any questions.

*In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Olin's plans for the fall 2020 semester are still being finalized, and we understand that we will need to continue to be flexible as the situation unfolds. Should a different type of program, such as a virtual alternative, become necessary, we will communicate this with students and counselors
