Student Life

Resources and support to help Olin students learn, explore, and create their own paths

At Olin, we know that learning happens everywhere – and that college is more than a place to attend classes. It’s where you live, discover and explore. Olin provides resources and support to help every student succeed in and out of the classroom.

Our goal is to ensure that everyone has the best possible experience at Olin. We do that by helping students experience learning not just in formal and technical settings, but as explorers and creators who design their own path.

College life can be a big adjustment as students transition from living at home to living on their own. The Office of Student Affairs and Resources (StAR) offers guidance, resources and support to help make that transition easier, and help students grow and succeed.
