Banter Program

Banter is a mentorship and networking program that provides an opportunity to build a lasting professional relationship between a current Olin student and an alumnus, thus reconnecting with the college, giving back to the community, and sharing the trademark Olin excitement. It is fun, a way to give back and a low time-commitment, high awesomeness program that sets up monthly chats (remotely or in person). Banter is a way to get to know Olin in a whole new light, and finally find out:

  • what DEATHCLAW is,
  • what’s lurking in the new Large Project Building behind the AC,
  • what snazzy eyeglass frames Jon Stolk is sporting these days,
  • which House won the first-ever Olin Quidditch Cup,
  • and much more!
