Live Interactive Virtual Visits
We understand that visiting campus is the ideal way to get a better feel for who we are and what life at Olin is like. While we are disappointed we are unable to host on-campus visits, 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.
Our Live Information Sessions are 60 minutes long and give you the opportunity to hear from both an admission counselor and a current Olin student. The admission counselor will present for approximately 45 minutes before an Oliner joins the call for the Q&A portion of the Information Session. Learn all about Olin's unique admission process, financial aid, institutional values, curriculum, and student life! Sessions available on Mondays and Fridays.
Since you can’t come tour Olin's campus, we’re bringing Olin to you! 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. Tours available Mondays through Thursdays.
Curious about the kinds of clubs that you could join at Olin? Get to know some of them by talking directly to current club members during Olin's virtual Club Fair! A few of Olin's most popular clubs will be available for conversations throughout the fair, so drop in any time you’d like! Registration is required to access the fair. Friday, October 23, 6:30 - 7:30 PM EDT.
Want to get the inside scoop on life at Olin College, from the perspective of our students? Join one of our “Hangin’ with Oliners” drop-in sessions to chat with current Olin students. These are one-hour, drop-in style sessions (meaning join anytime during the hour!) designed to give you an opportunity to ask current Olin students whatever questions you’d like. Our students love sharing their experiences, so no matter what’s on your mind, they’ll be happy to share with you what life at Olin is really like! While you can join the session whenever you'd like during the hour, registration is still required to get access to the session. Oliners will be available anytime during the scheduled hour. Sessions available on Fridays throughout the fall.
Prospective students are invited to request a virtual OVAL hosted visit through our student-run visit program. Visits are available during the month of October. This virtual program will pair you up with a current Olin student, and you'll be able to experience a day in the life of an Oliner. Typically, your visit will include sitting in on a current Olin class (all classes are held Eastern Daylight Time). Please note that due to the limited availability of student hosts, virtual OVAL visits are limited to students planning to enroll in college in Fall 2021 (typically high school seniors). Visits are available Mondays - Thursdays during the month of October (visits are not available on Monday, October 12).
The Olin Admission staff is conducting one-on-one video interviews (by video conference) with prospective students through November 11. Interviews are typically 30 minutes in length, and are a great opportunity for you to ask questions about Olin and tell us more about you and your interests! Please note that interviews are optional in the Olin admission process and unfortunately not all prospective students can be guaranteed an interview. Interview times will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis and are limited to prospective students who will be applying for Fall 2021 admission. Please note that prospective students may request an Olin Admission Staff Interview OR an Olin Alumni Interview, but not both. Interviews are available Wednesdays through November 11, 2020.
