Alumni Weekend

Alumni Weekend

Alumni Weekend is an annual event that brings all alumni together to reconnect and celebrate their time at Olin, while catching up on what's happened since graduation.

In 2018, we will celebrate Alumni Weekend September 21 - 23 for all alumni, with special celebrations for the Class of 2008's 10-year reunion and the Class of 2013's 5-year reunion. Stay tuned for the the full schedule and registrations details.

New for 2018, alumni of the last 3 years (classes of '18, '17, and '16) will have a special reduced rate as recent alumni. If you have any questions or want to be involved in planning, please contact Shannon Paleologos.
