Upcoming Events

Black Heritage Month

Black Heritage Month is a month of celebration, education, and reflection for remembering important people and events in the history of the African diaspora.

Since 1976, the month of February has officially been designated Black Heritage Month to celebrate the achievement’s by Black and African American people and recognize their central role in the history of the United States. All members of the community are encouraged to take some time this month to engage in open dialogue, reflect, celebrate, and attend some of our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) community events.

 In an effort to further develop our cultural competence and work towards creating a safer and welcoming community for everyone on campus, below are a few links on the origins and importance of Black Heritage Month.

Candidates' Weekend 1

Candidates’ Weekend For class of 2023

 

Each year, we invite about 225-250 applicants from our amazingly talented pool to attend one of three Candidates' Weekends, which take place in late February and early March. Attending one of these weekends is required if you wish to be admitted to Olin College of Engineering.

The weekends are designed to be fun, informal, and informational experiences. They are an opportunity for you to get to know us, and for us to get to know you.

 

What happens at a Candidates’ Weekend?

Candidates' Weekends begin on a Friday afternoon and take place all day Saturday. Over the course of two days, you’ll meet and hear from faculty, interact with current students and alumni, experience aspects of student life, and celebrate with the community as Olin comes together for these special events. Activities and events include but are not limited to:

  • -Campus Tour
  • -Design Challenge
  • -Individual Interview*
  • -Group Exercise*
  • -Faculty Chats
  • -Performance by the Olin Conductorless Orchestra
  • -Residence Hall Open House

*Activity is evaluated for purposes of admission

 

How are Candidates’ Weekends used by Admission?

Both the group exercise and the individual interview are evaluative tools that we use to decide who is ultimately admitted to Olin. The group exercise is moderated by an interview team consisting of a current student, a faculty member and either a staff member or an Olin graduate. The interview teams evaluate your performance in the group activity.

In addition to the group exercise, you’ll have a 25-minute informal interview with your interview team, and you are welcome to ask them questions as well.The Admission Committee relies on the interview teams’ evaluations and individual interviews to determine whether or not you will be offered admission to Olin.
