Hey! My name is Gretchen Rice, Class of 2020. I am from Oakland, Maine and did a lot of robotics (FRC Team 2648) and music (I play trumpet, violin, and sing) in high school. I am majoring in Engineering with a concentration in Robotics (Olin's version of Robotics Engineering). Since getting to Olin I have tried a lot of things and am constantly trying to figure out everything I want to be a part of on campus (yes, it is completely okay to be unsure about everything). I have been a student worker in the StAR (Student Affairs and Resources) office, a member of glass club, was on the programming sub team of OARS (Olin Aquatic Robotics Systems), and I give campus tours with OVAL (Olin Volunteer Ambassador League) and the Collaboratory (a group that interacts with outside education programs to share Olin’s mission). This year I was a NINJA (Need Information Now? Just Ask - Olin’s version of a Teaching Assistant), in PowerChords (Olin's a cappella group) and am an R2 (Resident Resource - Olin’s version of a Resident Assistant). I have tried a bunch of different clubs and activities on campus and am very involved in student affairs, so feel free to reach out to me about that, life at Olin, cold weather, or really anything related to Olin in general!
