Olin has a very positive and unique environment. The college encourages students to experiment and pursue their interests by providing resources and help from faculty. Olin is also very small, so you get to know everyone quickly.

Olin is a VERY small engineering school. They are very project-oriented and have a different approach to engineering education, and are getting good results. With only approximately 350 students, there's no way people aren't going to know you.
