Q: What did you experience at Olin that you hadn't expected to when you applied?

In coming to Olin I had no idea how incredibly busy I would be. With lots of meetings, project work and especially extracurriculars—Olin Rock Orchestra (ORO ) and Research of Electric Vehicles at Olin (REVO )— are extremely meaningful in terms of my academic learning and my personal growth. I expected to be in the library or sitting at my desk more but that definitely wasn't the case!
