Academic life at Olin College

As stated in its founding precepts, Olin College was created on the belief that the students’ experience here would be different than that offered at other institutions. “Academic Life,” represented by our Learning Continuum, is the manifestation of that belief. Olin fosters a seamless learning environment, across contexts and over time, which includes intellectual, social, personal, professional, and academic development. This culture of Academic Life is evidenced through both structure and operation and prioritizes the integration of learning across the many settings in which students engage. This holistic learning occurs from admission through graduation, and into the professional world. It is sustained by the collaborative relationships between faculty and staff that support student learning, with the mission to educate the next generation of innovators who want to better the world.
