The Office of Admission and Financial Aid welcomes prospective students and families to discover Olin! Our on campus visits are a great way to see into the life of an Oliner and hear from a member of our Admission and Financial Aid staff. Stay tuned for more visit opportunities coming this fall!
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.
Information Session and Campus Tour
Our On Campus Visit includes a one-hour student-led Campus Tour and a 30-minute Information Session with an Olin Admission Counselor. Our visits will give you the opportunity to learn all about Olin's unique admission process, curriculum, financial aid process, and life at Olin.
Student-Hosted Day Visit
A student-hosted day visit is an opportunity to experience a day in the life of an Olin student. You'll accompany your host to classes and activities, eat in the dining hall, and meet members of the Olin community! A hosted visit helps you experience Olin first-hand from the student perspective. Hosted visits to Olin are limited to students planning to enroll in college in Fall 2023..
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.
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
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.
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.
We invite you to explore Olin on your own through various pre-recorded programs and resources that provide many different aspects of life at Olin:

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
In order to continue to protect the Olin Community, all Office of Admission and Financial Aid visitors will be required to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.
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. We particularly seek nominations of students from backgrounds which are historically underrepresented in STEM fields. For students who would not otherwise have the financial resources to visit our campus, we will be covering all costs for their visit.
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.
The Mix & Mingle Fly-In program will be held in-person from October 16-17, 2022 at Olin's campus in Needham, MA. The form to nominate a student for this program is currently closed.
Please contact Julia Brown, Admission Counselor, with any questions.
