Candidate Weekend I for Class of 2024

Candidate Weekend I for Class of 2024

Each year, we invite about 225-250 applicants from our amazingly talented pool to attend one of three Candidates' Weekends, which take place in late February and early March. Attending one of these weekends is required if you wish to be admitted to Olin College of Engineering.

The weekends are designed to be fun, informal, and informational experiences. They are an opportunity for you to get to know us, and for us to get to know you. 

What happens at a Candidates’ Weekend?

Candidates' Weekends begin on a Friday afternoon and take place all day Saturday. Over the course of two days, you’ll meet and hear from faculty, interact with current students and alumni, experience aspects of student life, and celebrate with the community as Olin comes together for these special events. Activities and events include but are not limited to:

  • -Campus Tour
  • -Design Challenge
  • -Individual Interview*
  • -Group Exercise*
  • -Faculty Chats
  • -Performance by the Olin Conductorless Orchestra
  • -Residence Hall Open House

*Activity is evaluated for purposes of admission

How are Candidates’ Weekends used by Admission?

Both the group exercise and the individual interview are evaluative tools that we use to decide who is ultimately admitted to Olin. The group exercise is moderated by an interview team consisting of a current student, a faculty member and either a staff member or an Olin graduate. The interview teams evaluate your performance in the group activity.

In addition to the group exercise, you’ll have a 25-minute informal interview with your interview team, and you are welcome to ask them questions as well. The Admission Committee relies on the interview teams’ evaluations and individual interviews to determine whether or not you will be offered admission to Olin.

Friday, February 21 - Saturday, February 22, 2020.

Lecture with Shoshana Zuboff: The Age of Surveillance Capitalism

Lecture with Shoshana Zuboff: The Age of Surveillance Capitalism

Shoshana Zuboff, professor emerita at Harvard Business School, discusses her latest book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power. In this critically acclaimed work, Zuboff shows how our economy, politics, and society are increasingly being shaped by digital technologies. In her view, surveillance capitalism—a concept she coined—defines the current age in which we’ve all opted into the commodification of our personal information. Throughout the book, she outlines the cost of putting a price on private data, and she urges all of us to pay attention, resist habituation, and come up with novel responses to a new era.

Following the reading and Q&A from 7:30-9 pm, there will be a book signing and reception from 9-10 pm. Please RSVP.

This event is part of the programming of the Babson-Olin-Wellesley faculty-led initiative Intellectual Community Building Through Reading, Discussion, and Public Guest Lectures.

Olin Exposition - Underclass Projects and Presentations

Olin Exposition - May 2020

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. In the spring, first through third year students are required to present.
