The Olin Exposition is a public event at the end of each semester where students present academic and nonacademic work to an audience that includes the entire Olin community and external visitors. It is an opportunity for students to reflect on the semester, celebrate their achievements and share them with others, practice communication skills, and demonstrate their activities and abilities.
Expo is an opportunity for people outside the college to see what Olin students can do, and it is an important way of involving external constituencies in the activities of the school. Normally all registered students are required to participate in Expo in the fall. In the spring, first through third year students are required to present at Expo while seniors are required to participate in the end of year SCOPE Summit. Students who cannot attend Expo for any reason should petition the Dean of Student Life as early as possible for an excused absence.
