The Office of Admission + Financial Aid offers a variety of opportunities for prospective students and their families to discover Olin, whether it is at an on campus event, through one of our virtual events, or by connecting with our community members "on the road." We're looking forward to meeting you!
Ways to Visit Olin
Come experience Olin in-person with our On Campus Visits. Students, Faculty, and Staff are excited to welcome you to campus to showcase all that Olin has to offer.
On Campus Visit: Information Session and Campus Tour
During this visit you will have the opportunity to join a member of our Admission and Financial Aid Office during a 30-minute Information Session. This session will cover Olin’s unique admission process, financial aid, and curriculum. Following the Information Session, join one of our current Olin students on a 60-minute walking tour of campus.
On Campus Visit: Weekend Campus Tour
Discover Olin by taking a 60-minute in-person Campus Tour of Olin College. Our Campus Tours are led by current Olin students and will give you an inside look into what life is like at Olin through hearing about the community and culture through an Oliner’s point of view.
On Campus Visit: Large Group Visit
If you are looking to visit Olin with a larger group, please fill out this form. Visits may consist of Information Sessions or Tours depending on your group's needs and Olin staff availability.
All sessions and tour times are Eastern Time
If you can't make it to one of our scheduled On Campus Visits, we invite you to tour our campus on your own! Our self-guided tour allows you to tour Olin's campus any time you want and at your own pace with the free Guidebook App. Using the App as your guide, you'll be led through campus and will listen to voice-over narrations from current Olin students at 12 different stops on campus. The tour takes approximately 30 minutes to complete if you listen to the audio at each stop, but you are welcome to explore campus for as long as you'd like. The walking portion of the tour is about 0.5 miles. The entire route is outdoors, and you will not go inside any campus facilities. If you have time, take the Babson mini campus tour (included in the App) to see the places Oliners frequent the most on Babson's campus! Instructions on how to download the free Guidebook App and access the tour will be sent via email once you submit your registration.
If you are unable to visit campus, we hope you will still connect with us online through one of our many interactive programs to learn everything there is to know about Olin. Visit Olin from the comfort and safety of your own home!
Virtual Visit: Live Virtual Tour
Join Olin students for a 60-minute live and interactive tour experience. Learn about the student experience directly from current Olin students through personal anecdotes, photos, and videos. Experience Olin’s campus, community, and culture through an Oliner’s point of view.

Mix & Mingle Diversity Fly-in
Co-sponsored by the Olin College Office of Admission & Financial Aid and the MIX (Multicultural Innovators Experience)
Each October, Olin College offers prospective students the opportunity to attend a fly-in visit to Olin. We invite counselors to nominate 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. We particularly seek nominations of students from backgrounds which are historically underrepresented in STEM fields. Interested students also have the option of nominating themselves.
The MIX & Mingle fly-in program is limited to high school seniors and students who for other reasons are planning to enter college in fall 2023. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate nominations for international students at this time.
Mix & Mingle has been offered in both in-person and virtual formats. More information as well as nomination forms for the October 2022 program will be available on our website in May of 2022.
Please contact Julia Brown, Admission Counselor, with any questions
