Parent Handbook 2012–13

N O T E F r O m T h E Fa r D i r E c T O r

Dear Olin Parents, I am overjoyed to share our Parent Handbook, a helpful resource that provides information about the people and policies of Olin College, as well as frequently asked questions from parents, area maps and accommodations. Now in its tenth edition, this Handbook has been created and improved as a result of the dedicated teamwork of your fellow Olin Parents, and the Offices of Student Life and Family and Alumni Relations. For your reference, the most current versions of the Student Handbook, Parent Handbook and Greater Area Boston Guide are available at the Olin Parent website (https://www.olin.edu/parents/resources.aspx).

Acknowledgments The production of the Parent Handbook has been a team effort at every stage. Many members of the Olin and Babson College communities were helpful in providing the information necessary for making this publication an accurate and valuable resource. The Office of Student Life; Director Kristina Raposa and Intern Alexandria Milot of the Office of Family and Alumni Relations; PAB chair Eric Becht P’13 and PAB Communication Committee members: Brenda Campbell P’14, Susan Homans P’15, Michelle Noglows P’13, Marti Zavala P’13 and other volunteers; Johannes Santen ’12 for assistance with the Handbook cover design; Antti Lehtnen for cover image permission; and Sylvia Peretz, the Handbook’s designer, all dedicated their energies to producing a user-friendly Handbook that is clear and informative. Environmental Responsibility Olin College is making an effort to be environmentally responsible with regard to our printed publications.

Dear Fellow Olin Parents,

During my daughter Sam’s college search, we participated in all of the Olin recruitment activities, including the renowned Candidates’ Weekend. While Sam interacted with Olin students during her Candidates’ Weekend, I did my own investigation to see how Olin lived-up to their goal. I listened to the speeches, listened during informal sessions to two professors discuss the “Olin Way” of teaching, and asked a lot of questions of students, their parents and administrators. I came away impressed with Olin in a way I found exciting. As a professional engineer myself, I was impressed by the lofty goal of the founding of Olin College; to transform the way engineering is taught to future engineers. Some may believe that for such a small, new institution, this is an impossible feat. How wrong they would be. Sam’s three years of experience has only reinforced my earlier impressions. Her enthusiasm in learning engineering is a testament to the “Olin Way.” Her opportunities for the past three summers, to build and run a business and to participate in two rewarding internships, point to the multitude of opportunities Olin has opened for Sam. I personally feel a commitment to give something back to those organizations that have positively impacted my family and whose cause I believe in. Olin fits those criteria, a noble cause and a positive impact on my daughter. How could I not volunteer to help such an organization? Perhaps you feel the same way? Olin has a proud history of parent involvement. There are many ways parents can help. Please visit the volunteer sign-up page on Olin’s Parent website or contact any member of the PAB listed below to see how. The grey box on this page will provide an overview as well.

Parent Support Here’s how you can join the PAB in helping Olin: • S upport Development’s goal for 100% parent participation in the annual fundraising effort (average over 80% in the past few years); • A ssist with networking events and coordinating parents’ corporate contacts for possible job placements and internships;

On behalf of the entire PAB, we look forward to working with you in the year ahead. We wish you all success in the 2012-13 academic year.

• P articipate in recruitment efforts (volunteering in the Student Recruitment Program; see page 42);

Sincerely,

• Serve as parent resources to incoming families; and

• P rovide feedback to the college via surveys and the Parent Feedback form on the Parent website; • V olunteer to help or submit ideas for future Parent communication (i.e., website, Handbook) and events (i.e., Family Weekend). To volunteer in these areas, visit: https://www.olin.edu/parents/volunteer_signup.aspx

Pa r E N T a D v i s O ry B O a r D c h a r T E r

Parent Advisory Board Charter Purpose: The purpose of the Parent Advisory Board (PAB) is to provide advice and counsel to the college through the vice president for Development, Family and Alumni Relations (VPDFAR) on issues of importance to the college. The PAB serves at the pleasure of the vice president and is advisory in nature. In addition, it serves as the organizing body for a Parent Organization, which is open to all Olin parents. In this capacity, it oversees special initiatives in the best interests of the Olin students on behalf of all the parents. Membership: The PAB shall consist of no more than 16 members who serve two year renewable, staggered terms. There shall be four members each from the sophomore, junior and senior parents, two members who are first-year parents and two members who are alumni parents. Terms are renewable once, and active involvement by the board member during his/her first term will be considered during the renewal process. New members shall be appointed by the VPDFAR upon recommendation by the highest level staff member of Family and Alumni Relations office. The two first-year parent appointments shall be made by November 1, and the upper-class parent and alumni parent appointments shall be made by May 1. The VPDFAR shall serve as an ex-officio member of the PAB. Meetings: The PAB will meet on campus once each fall in conjunction with Family Weekend, and will conduct one meeting via teleconference in the spring. With the exception of the alumni parent representatives, there is an expectation that PAB members will attend the on-campus meeting. There is an expectation that alumni parents will participate via teleconference. Between meetings, telephone calls or e-mail communications will be used to conduct business. Travel expenses will be the responsibility of the members. Leadership: Leadership will be provided by a chair, chair-elect and treasurer. The PAB will select these officers from among returning members who are current parents in consultation with the VPDFAR. Alumni parents are not eligible to be officers. The chair will serve a term of two years, consisting of one year as chair-elect (termed vice-chair) followed by one year as chair. The chair is invited and encouraged to take part in the President’s Council on-campus meetings. If present for President’s Council, travel and lodging will be the responsibility of the chair. The treasurer will serve a term of one year. The responsibilities of the treasurer will include oversight of funds contributed to the Parent Organization and intended for projects or initiatives not commonly considered philanthropic to Olin College. Responsibilities of Members: Members of the PAB will be expected to provide advice and counsel to help advance the college on issues of importance, and to advocate for the college with prospective students, employers, donors, media and other constituencies as appropriate. Topics of central importance will include student recruitment, student life and professional development, curriculum and learning, fostering a college environment of innovation and continual improvement, external and corporate relations, and strategies and approaches for developing philanthropic support for the college and its programs. Report to the President: At least once each year the chair, chair-elect and treasurer of the PAB shall meet with the president to provide a report on prospective initiatives proposed by the PAB and the conclusions or ongoing progress of current initiatives. The purpose of this report is to foster formal communication between the president and the PAB, and to enhance the process of innovation and continuous improvement throughout the college.

Parents Recruiting for Olin Dear Olin Parents, In Olin College’s ten year history, parents have been an invaluable resource to Olin’s admission process. The Student Recruitment Program (SRP) is an important form of outreach through which Olin connects with prospective students and their families. There are no better testimonials for Olin than those from our current students, parents and alumni. Parent-to-parent outreach provides a clear demonstration of our close-knit community. The mission of the SRP is simple: to provide volunteer opportunities for Olin parents and alumni to assist the admission staff with the recruitment of outstanding students to Olin College. As parents, you each have a story to share about the Olin experience. These stories are incredibly meaningful for those considering Olin, as we are sure you remember. Our prospective students and families tend to have a wide array of world-class admission options in addition to Olin, and hearing from current members of our community can help them make a personal connection to our school. SRP tasks include: • serving as an email resource for prospective parents (listed on the Olin website); • volunteering at Admission events, including Women’s Open House, Fall Open House and regional information sessions; • attending Candidates’ Weekends to serve as a resource for Candidates and their families; • attending local college fairs on Olin’s behalf; and • c alling or emailing admitted parent(s) during the month of April, offering congratulations and serving as a resource should the need arise. More information about the SRP, as well as the parent volunteer sign-up form, can be found on Olin’s website at: https://www.olin.edu/parents/volunteering/SRPAbout.aspx We trust you will find volunteering with the SRP rewarding and fun. Your participation in the SRP will help prospective families see the impact Olin can have, both educationally and personally, on a student’s life. If you have any questions or would like to become a SRP volunteer, please do not hesitate to contact me at joshua.henry@olin.edu and sign up as a parent volunteer. Thank you for your effort and time! Yours sincerely,

Joshua Henry Assistant Director of Admission and SRP Coordinator 剘

Academics One of Olin’s highest priorities is the well being of its students, and Olin recognizes that individual circumstances often call for individual approaches. Olin’s faculty, staff and administration will always attempt to do what is right, regardless of the formal rule. The following policies will help to ensure that students are treated fairly. To reference these policies including detailed information on attendance, withdrawal, cross-registration and grading, please see the section on Academic Policies of the Course Catalog or Student Handbook (https://www.olin.edu/ student_life/pdfs/student_handbook.pdf). A listing of frequently asked questions regarding Passionate Pursuits and Co-Curriculars can also be found in the Academics section of both publications. Such questions include: “What is a ‘Passionate Pursuit’?” and “How does a ‘Co-Curricular’ differ from a student club?” You can also find an example list of Co-Curriculars offered in the past.

Assessment Olin is committed to continual feedback and improvement in all areas of the institution. This commitment brings with it certain responsibilities for all community members. Because of this commitment to continual improvement, students and other community members are frequently asked to provide assessment information. It is each individual’s responsibility to respond honestly, promptly and fully to such requests.

Academic Advising Coursework and advising are different aspects of the same process — developing a well-educated person. Olin College views advising as a central role of our faculty. Students’ relationships with their advisers are among the most important ones they will establish here and can have a significant impact on their Olin education. The advising system includes, but is not limited to: individual advising, advising families, the Sibbs program, career development and course planning. A detailed description of each advising system can be found in the Academic Advising section of the Course Catalog or Student Handbook.

Student Accounts and Records (StAR) Center Campus Center, Suite 300 Email: Phone: Fax: Web:

star.center@olin.edu 781-292-2340 781-292-2344 http://star.olin.edu

The mission of the StAR Center is to provide Olin students with excellent customer service and one stop shopping. The StAR Center is responsible for all aspects of the student academic record, student account and student financial aid. Registration, transcripts, bill payments and FAFSAs, it all happens through the StAR Center. For more information on such topics, please visit the StAR Center section of the Course Catalog or Student Handbook or http://star.olin.edu

hONOr cODE

Honor Code 1 . Purpose of the Honor Code This Honor Code, written and maintained by the students of Olin College, exists to provide an ethical framework for the Olin student community. It represents an individual commitment by each Olin student to dedicate his or her self to these standards as well as a community commitment to ensure that these standards are upheld. This Code will serve always as a bold statement that ethics are not optional at Olin and that they are simultaneously an individual and community concern.

2 . College Jurisdiction Olin College students are members of the college community as well as citizens of the Town of Needham and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. As citizens, students are responsible to the community of which they are a part and the College neither substitutes for nor interferes with the regular legal processes. Students are also accountable for offenses against the academic community. Therefore, an action involving a student in a legal proceeding in a civil or criminal court does not free the student from responsibility for their conduct in a college proceeding. If a student is charged in both jurisdictions, the College will proceed with its internal review according to its own timetable.

3 . Honor Code As a member of the Olin College community, I will strive to embody the spirit of honor and integrity as defined by the five core personal values and will take action to address any breach of that spirit.

3 .1 Integrity Each member of the college community will accept responsibility for and represent accurately and completely oneself, one’s work, and one’s actions.

3 .2 Respect for Others Each member of the college community will be considerate of fellow community members and honor each individual’s inherent dignity and worth.

3 .3 Passion for the Welfare of the College Each member of the college community will express a personal commitment to the welfare of the community through a spirit of cooperation, concern for others, and responsibility for the reputation of Olin College.

3 .4 Patience and Understanding Each member of the college community will strive to foster harmonious relationships through empathy and mindfulness of others.

3 .5 Openness to Change Each member of the college community will be receptive to change and will strive for innovation and improvement within the community.

3 .6 Do Something When aware of a potential violation of the Honor Code, a member of the college community must take action in a timely manner to address the situation. While all violations are treated with utmost concern, academic and non-academic cases differ in nature and therefore often call for different courses of action. Suspected violations of integrity in academic work must be reported to the professor of the course or directly to the Honor Board. Other suspected violations must either be addressed informally to the satisfaction of all parties involved or reported to the Honor Board.

Public Safety The Department of Public Safety for Babson and Olin Colleges provides a comprehensive program of police law enforcement, security, crime prevention, emergency medical, parking and related public safety services to ensure that both the Babson and Olin College communities remain a safe and pleasant place in which to study, live and work. The services are provided on all property owned, used or occupied by the colleges, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Upon completion of a certified police academy, the officers have full law enforcement powers on college property as special state police officers under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 22c, section 63. Additionally some police officers have specialized training in the areas of crime prevention theory and the investigation of sexual assaults and biasmotivated crime, as well as other subjects that enhance the ability of the department to provide comprehensive public safety services. The Department of Public Safety is charged with providing law enforcement and other emergency services to the Babson College and Olin College communities. All complaints will be investigated and any violations of law or college policy can result in the filing of criminal charges and/or referral to the Office of Student Life. In certain cases, such investigations are carried out in conjunction with local, state or federal law enforcement agencies. The college community can contact the Department of Public Safety using the on-campus extension x5555, or, if calling from a cell phone or off-campus location, 781-239-5555. In addition to Public Safety staff, residents may discuss community concerns and issues of security and safety with Student Life staff members. The Department of Public Safety provides a wide range of services designed to inform students and employees about ways to increase security on campus: release of a police log to the campus newspaper, bicycle patrol, articles on crime prevention, informational presentations during Orientation and personal safety escort services. In the event of an emergency, a meeting of the College Crisis Management Team is held to determine the most appropriate course of action. In some instances, the Department of Public Safety issues a public safety advisory, during emergency situations alert notifications will be sent out through Send Word Now updating the community through text, email and phone calls of the emergency situation on campus and advising what action should be taken. Members of the Department of Public Safety also conduct external checks of all buildings to ensure they are secure at the appropriate times. Residence hall exterior doors are locked 24 hours a day while classroom and administrative

buildings are secured at the conclusion of normally scheduled business hours. The Assistant Dean of Student Life for Programs, the Director of Facilities Services and the Public Safety staff work together to ensure building security. The Department of Public Safety recognizes the need to have assistance if we are going to effectively perform our duties. In an effort to encourage calls from those members of our community who would not normally contact Public Safety whenever they have complaints, concerns or information, we have installed a confidential caller telephone line. Although we prefer to converse with individuals, we acknowledge the fact that some people wish to leave information anonymously. To protect the identity of callers, all calls will be directed to an answering machine that does not have caller ID. The telephone number is 781-237-8164. See http://facilitiesservices.olin.edu/PublicSafety.html or the next two pages for information regarding campus security and statistics about criminal acts on the Olin campus. The Director of Public Safety and Chief of Police is James E. Pollard and he can be reached at james.pollard@olin.edu or 781-239-5555.

Olin Emergency Alert System Olin’s Emergency Alert System (Olin EAS) allows for rapid dissemination of news and instructions in the event of a campus-wide emergency. Alerts for this system are managed through the Public Safety Department at Babson College. Olin community members are responsible for populating and maintaining his or her information. Contact information can be updated and changed anytime by logging into the Olin EAS. If you are leaving Olin for an extended period and are concerned about incurring costs due to notifications to your cell phone, you may edit your phone contact information to temporarily turn off text messaging and/or phone calls. For information about the Olin EAS system, and for instructions on how to register, edit, or deactivate the student’s account, please consult the Olin EAS FAQ sheet, which is accessible from the “Campus Life” tab of the Portal (Phoenix. Net) or my.olin.edu.

54 Office of Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) A safe environment is one tenet of the Olin College Core Institutional Values and the college is committed to reducing or eliminating the health and safety risks to its students, employees and visitors. The success of this commitment depends on all members of the Olin community actively participating in the design and operation of campus programs and activities that insure the security, safety and health of our community. The Office of EH&S offers technical support and a variety of services to the college community with the goal of promoting programs and activities that operate in a safe, healthy and environmentally responsible manner and that comply with EH&S laws and regulations.

The Office of EH&S is located in Campus Center, Suite 332 and can be reached at x2316 (781-292-2316 offcampus) or via safety@olin.edu

MySafeCampus® A successful safety program depends on us all being alert and committed to safety.

This valuable external service may be accessed by the Internet (http://www.MySafeCampus.com) or by calling the toll-free number (800-716-9007). Both of these avenues are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This new service is an enhancement, not a replacement, of our current resources and processes. Please feel free to utilize this system if you do not feel comfortable using our current procedures.

Campus Security The Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542) required all colleges to begin to collect certain information commencing September 1, 1991. It also required that the college prepare, publish and distribute this information to all current students and employees, and to any applicants for enrollment or employment upon request beginning September 1, 1992, and each year thereafter. Title II of Public Law 101-542 mandates the reporting of the following criminal acts occurring at Olin College during the most recent three calendar years as defined in the law. Title II of Public Law 101-542 also mandates the reporting of statistics concerning the number of arrests for the following crimes. This law was also amended to include those not arrested. The college currently has no recognized off-campus

student organizations. All student organizations are housed in campus buildings. In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering publishes and makes available to any prospective student or employee upon request a copy of the college’s annual security report. The Campus Security Report can be found on the Olin College website at http://facilitiesservices/PublicSafety.html under quick link, Campus Security Info. College alcohol and other drug policies are set forth in Appendix C. See the previous page, or page 80 of the Student Handbook, for a description of the services provided by the Department of Public Safety, including how to report criminal acts. The staff in the Department of Public Safety and the staff in the Office of Student Life are available to assist students in notifying the Needham Police Department if the student chooses.

Appointments Please call 781-239-6363 to schedule an appointment between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday–Friday. Allergy injections (by appointment only): Tuesdays 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesdays 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Services The following services are available to all full-time Olin College students: diagnosis and treatment of illnesses, evaluation and treatment of injuries, male and female reproductive examinations, gynecological care, including contraceptive management and counseling, pregnancy testing, emergency contraception, sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment, consultations with a registered dietitian and administration of immunizations injections. The costs of medical tests, immunizations or services provided off-campus are the financial responsibility of the student.

Required Vaccinations Each year new students are notified by Health Services about required vaccinations (e.g., MMR, tetanus and diphtheria toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine (Tdap), hepatitis B, meningococcal meningitis immunizations, varicella).

All visits to Health Services and conversations with the staff are confidential. The student’s permission must be obtained before Health Services will give information to anyone not directly connected with the student’s care. This includes parents and college officials. There are limited exceptions to this policy as we are required by law to report certain communicable diseases to the Public Health Department and in life-threatening situations.

Health Insurance Massachusetts law requires students enrolled in colleges located in the state to participate in a qualifying student health insurance program. Further, the law requires that colleges must enroll students who have not provided verification that they are in a health insurance program that meets the law’s minimum required benefits. The college has arranged for qualifying student accident and illness insurance. Students who have comparable health insurance may elect to waive the requirement to participate in the health insurance program. Financial responsibility for all medical and dental expenses rests with the student and his or her family. Olin College does not assume financial responsibility for injuries incurred in instructional, intercollegiate, intramural or recreational programs.

Mental Health Services

• D avid L. Stormberg, M.D. A practicing psychiatrist for more than 20 years, Dr. Stormberg provides diagnostic evaluation, a range of psychotherapies and medication treatment. He prefers trying to help first with psychotherapy, and then augmenting treatment with medication as required. He meets with students in his office at 105 Chestnut St., Suite 14, Needham. A student can contact Dr. Stormberg by calling his office directly (781-449-0094). When a student gets his voicemail, he or she must identify him or herself as an Olin student, briefly describe the reason for the call and its urgency, and ask him to return the call. A phone number and a good time to call back should be included in the message. It may facilitate arranging a meeting if the student includes a range of times he or she is available. If the call is urgent, the student can page Dr. Stormberg by following the instructions in his voicemail greeting. Dr. Stormberg will call back to arrange an appointment. It is possible to email Dr. Stormberg at dstormberg@verizon.net if need be, but in that case the student should avoid putting personal information in the email. To get to his office, turn left out of Olin and take Rt. 135 (Great Plain Ave.) into Needham Center, and turn right at the light onto Chestnut St. Dr. Stormberg’s office building is on the right, across from the fire station, and his office is located on the ground floor. The student can park in the large lot next to the building (although numbered, the spots are not reserved). Dr. Stormberg’s office is also within biking and/or walking distance if the student doesn’t have a car and does not want to access the free transportation. • C olony Care Behavioral Health. Colony Care Behavioral Health is a multi-disciplinary group of psychologists, social workers and psychiatrists. A variety of providers offer a wide array of treatment approaches including short and long term psychotherapy, stress management counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, medication management and hypnosis. Students seek help from Colony Care for a variety of issues, including but not limited to the following: school stress, relationship issues, family issues, depression, anxiety, coming out issues, post-graduate concerns, eating concerns, sexual assault, grief/bereavement or substance abuse issues. A core group of providers work with Olin College students at their offices at 11 River St. in Wellesley, located near the intersection of Rts. 16 and

Clinicians from Colony Care Behavioral Health also conduct counseling sessions on Olin’s campus; typically three hours per week are offered and the clinicians staffing those hours vary. These meetings are still confidential and free. Students can look for more information about these on-campus counseling hours around campus. They can also check with their R2 or the Office of Student Life for more information. A clinician from Colony Care may also be available to facilitate time limited discussions for groups of students around a range of quality of life issues (e.g., college adjustment, social relationships, identity development, eating concerns). If a student is interested, or knows of a group of students who might be interested, the student can contact Assistant Dean of Student Life Alison Black to explore possibilities. Whatever option you choose, your communications with mental health providers will remain entirely confidential within the boundaries of state law. They will not be shared with college officials unless you explicitly request that they be or if any student’s safety is in question. Olin College will pay for mental health services as described above during the academic year and bills to the college will not include personally identifiable information.

Transportation Students unable to arrange their own transportation may use Wellesley Transportation by calling 781-235-2200. Olin covers this cost; students need only to sign a receipt given to the student by the cab driver at the time. * Of course, students always have the option to utilize private insurance to access mental health services independently. Check with your provider for information about coverage terms and conditions.

h E a lT h c a r E

Olin provides two options for Mental Health Services: the individual practice of Dr. David Stormberg or Colony Care Behavioral Health group practice.* Students in need of mental health services may want to meet with Alison Black, Assistant Dean of Student Life, to discuss concerns and options. Other members of the Office of Student Life staff are also available to meet with students about these issues. Students are also free to contact either of these providers directly and confidentially.

128. To set up a first time appointment, the student should call Laura Kinney, LICSW at 781-431-1177 x213. Leave a message and a reliable way of contacting the student. If the student’s call is urgent, Laura can be paged by following the instructions given on her outgoing voicemail message. For routine appointments, Laura will contact the student within the same business day to briefly talk with the student about his or her concerns and needs. Based on this information, she will arrange for the most appropriate provider to contact the student to arrange for a first appointment. The student may also email Laura at lkinneylicsw@yahoo.com; however, the student’s email message should only include an inquiry and a telephone number where you can be reached. Due to confidentiality issues, Colony Care staff members prefer to schedule appointments via the telephone. To get to the Colony Care offices, turn right out of Olin and take Rt. 135 (Great Plain Ave.) toward Babson. At the rotary, take the second right onto Seaver St., and then turn left onto Forest St. When you reach Washington St./Rt. 16, turn right, and follow this road until you reach River St. Turn right onto River St.; the offices for Colony Care and the parking lot are on the right.

Due to insurance limitations, the van may not be used for “taxi” or “shuttle” service for personal needs. To become a certified driver please visit the Facilities Services website at: http://facilitiesservices.olin.edu/ and click on “Transportation” and then “Olin Van.”

Wellesley—Olin—Babson Shuttle Olin College, Wellesley College and Babson College jointly fund a shuttle service to aid cross-registered students. The first run begins at the Wellesley Campus Center at 7:40 a.m., arrives at the Wellesley Chapel at 7:42, arrives at Olin’s East Hall at 7:52, arrives at the Babson Campus Center at 7:55, arrives at the Wellesley Chapel again at 8:05, and returns to the Wellesley Campus Center at 8:07. The next run begins at 8:10 and follows the same 27 minute schedule. There is a lunch break in the schedule from 12:07 to 12:40 p.m. The last run of the day returns to the Wellesley Campus Center at 6:37 p.m. An Olin, Wellesley or Babson ID card is required.

Trains Amtrak’s Northeast Direct Service stops at Rt. 128 Station (RTE) in Westwood, about six miles from Needham. From there, you can take a taxi to Olin College. Amtrak continues on to Boston’s South Station, where commuter rail service is available (see previous pages). Amtrak offers service to major cites all over the northeast, including Providence, New York, Portland, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Trains from Boston even go as far as Chicago, with no transfers. For more information visit: http://www.amtrak.com

Logan International Airport (BOS) With service to all the major airlines, and relative ease of access, Boston’s Logan International Airport is the choice for the majority of Olin students. Logan is approximately 30 minutes from campus during non-rush hour times. Logan is accessible using the commuter rail, the subway and shuttle services. For more information about shuttle schedules and fares visit: http://www.massport.com/logan/getti_typeo_logan.html

Manchester Airport (MHT) Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is located in Manchester, New Hampshire — approximately one hour from Olin, depending on traffic. It is located just off of I-93. For more information visit: http://www.flymanchester.com

TF Green Airport (PVD) Some students prefer to use Rhode Island’s Theodore Francis Green Airport as an often thriftier alternative to Logan. It is located approximately an hour from Olin near Providence, RI. Take I-95 south into Rhode Island, through Providence, and then follow the signs for the airport; Exit 13. For more information visit: http://www.pvdairport.com

Hanscom Field (BED) Hanscom Field is serviced by Boston-Maine Airways and Linear Air, and is located off of I-95/Rt. 128 in Bedford, MA, about 20 miles northwest of Boston and about 30 minutes from Olin. For more information visit: http://www.massport.com/hansc

Additionally, both have terminals at Riverside Station, on the Green Line in Newton and at the Framingham Airport Express Terminal. Greyhound has terminals located in nearly every major city in the United States, and parts of Canada. Peter Pan serves the northeast.

Please reference the Student Handbook for current student policies and information on the following: • M assachusetts Act Prohibiting the Practice of Hazing, Chapter 269 of the General Laws • P rivacy Policies: Student Notification of Rights and Statement of Intent to Release Directory Information, Library and Assessment • S ervices Available to Victims of Rape, Acquaintance Rape and Other Sex Offenses • Drug Free School and Communities • Information Technology Policies and Procedures • Library Policies • Voter Registration • Use of Non-Residence Hall College Facilities • Other Policies

Appendix A Olin College Core Personal Values Integrity: Complete honesty is expected from everyone in every situation. Even the appearance of a conflict of interest will be avoided. Successful long-term relationships depend on trust and open communication. Respect for Others: Each person is treated with respect and dignity in all situations. Criticize only ideas — not people, and share responsibility. There is no room for abusive language or arrogance in relationships with others. Passion for the Welfare of the College: As exemplified by the Trustees, each person will passionately pursue the overall interests of the College, while maintaining fairness to all individuals in all transactions. Personal advancement at the expense of others is discouraged and cooperation is expected. Patience and Understanding: Each person will listen constructively, keep an open mind and take the time to understand with empathy before reaching a conclusion. Effective teamwork depends on the confidence that others care and are willing to take the time to listen. Openness to Change: Continuous improvement requires openness to change, even though this usually causes

inconvenience, inefficiency and risk of failure. Olin College will constantly strive to innovate and improve in every area.

Olin College Core Institutional Values Quality and Continuous Improvement: Olin College will strive for quality in all that it does. It will also strive for continuous improvement in all areas, and will measure its progress with appropriate national standards. Student Learning and Development: Olin College is a student-centered institution. It will strive to provide educational experiences of exceptional quality and a student life environment that provides for healthy personal development. Institutional Integrity and Community: Olin College will strive to develop long-term relationships based on honesty, fairness and respect. It will further strive to provide a safe environment that supports freedom of inquiry, acceptance of diversity and a sense of well being. Institutional Agility and Entrepreneurism: Olin College will strive to minimize bureaucracy, cost and institutional inertia in all forms. It will further strive to accept appropriate risks in pursuit of opportunity. Stewardship and Service: Olin College will strive to provide responsible stewardship of its resources while encouraging a spirit of service to society.

Appendix B Articulation with Babson College, Wellesley College and Brandeis University Student Judicial Systems Olin College has agreed with Babson College and Brandeis University to enforce their respective conduct standards when their students participate in academic, Co-Curricular, and extracurricular pursuits on the neighboring (host) campuses. The Olin College honor system will hear cases in which Olin students are accused of violating a host campus’s standards, using the host’s policies and definitions but Olin disciplinary procedures. Similarly, the Babson and Brandeis judicial systems will hear cases in which their students are accused of violating Olin standards, using Olin policies and definitions but their own judicial procedures. When on each other’s campuses, Olin and Wellesley students will be subject to the host campus’s standards of conduct. The host campus’s disciplinary process will be used when an Olin or Wellesley student violates the host’s standards. Olin students taking classes or participating in activities on

The following Appendices have been copied from the Student Handbook for the awareness of Olin Parents. It has been written for the student audience; thus the usage of “you” is directed at the student.

aPPENDicEs

other campuses should familiarize themselves with the host’s student disciplinary system and standards of conduct.

Appendix C Residence Halls and Related Policies All students are required to live on campus. Exceptions may be approved by the Dean of Student Life due to a personal circumstance (e.g., married students). Policies governing behavior within the residence halls are based on the principle that the exercise of one person’s rights must not infringe upon the exercise of another’s rights in the ordinary course of daily living. Each student is expected to behave in a manner that respects and considers the rights of others in the college community. Alcohol and Other Drugs: No student under the legal drinking age is allowed to possess or consume alcoholic beverages in college residence halls or on college property. For students who are 21 years of age or older, possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages is limited to the student’s individual room or to authorized events in public areas. In any case, large quantities of alcoholic beverages (e.g., kegs, cases of liquor) are not permitted in residence halls.

Parent Handbook 2012–13

parts to all residents of that corridor. Reimbursements for damages to public spaces (lounges, team rooms and antelounges) are billed in equal parts to all residents of that floor. Exceptions to public areas include the two residence hall kitchens, trash rooms, exercise rooms, Admission guest rooms, club storage areas, stairwells, custodial closets, elevators and public restrooms. Each student must complete and return to Facilities Services a Room and Floor Assessment Form at the beginning of the year to avoid being assessed unwarranted charges. Students should also file workorders to report damages during the year to avoid being assessed unwarranted charges at the end of the year. All rooms, corridors and public spaces must be left clean, neat and in order. All furniture must be intact and returned to their original location. Doors: Outside and hallway doors are secured for the safety of residents and their belongings. Tampering with doors or locks to prevent them from closing securely is prohibited. The outside of a room door is considered part of the hallway or common area and, as such, subject to the posting regulations for residence halls as displayed in each residence hall.

The on-campus possession, use, sale or distribution of illegal narcotics, stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens, or marijuana or its derivatives is prohibited. Possession of drug paraphernalia is prohibited. Misuse of prescription drugs is also prohibited.

Emergency Reassignment of Housing: Pending final action on violation of college regulations, the Office of Student Life reserves the rights to reassign a student to another location or remove a student outright from college housing. The decision to reassign or remove a student shall be made by the Assistant Dean of Student Life for Programs after consultation with the Dean of Student Life. If a student is reassigned or removed outright, the relevant procedures of the student disciplinary system will be initiated within 10 class days after the reassignment/removal.

All new students receive certified training about appropriate responses to alcohol-related emergencies. Alcohol education programs and alcohol counseling are available throughout the academic year.

Fire Drills: Periodic fire drills may be conducted in the residence halls during the academic year. When the alarm is sounded, all students must vacate the building. Students may not return until instructed to do so by a college official.

Cooking Equipment: For reasons of safety, other than the microwave provided by the college, cooking equipment of any other kind is not allowed in individual student rooms. This includes hot plates, toaster ovens, hot pots, immersion heaters, fry pans, etc.

Guests: Overnight guests are permitted in the residence halls, provided that consideration is given to the rights of all permanent occupants. In particular, roommates must give explicit approval. Any guest who remains within the residence hall for more than two consecutive days must be registered with the Assistant Dean of Student Life for Programs. Four days is the maximum length of time normally permitted for each guest. Special permission from the Assistant Dean of Student Life for Programs is required for guest stays of longer than four days. Residents assume responsibility for the actions of their guests.

Copyrighted Media: In compliance with copyright laws, video cassettes and DVDs intended for home/private use may be shown in public areas within the residence halls only if no admission is charged, no advertising is associated with the viewing and no college funds are used to rent or purchase the videotape. Damage: Damage to property in a college residence hall is the responsibility of the residents. Each student is responsible for reimbursing the college for any damages caused by her/himself and her or his guests. Reimbursement for damages to individual rooms are billed to the student(s) living in that room. Damages to common spaces in suits are billed in equal parts to all residents in the suite. When damage occurs in a corridor but cannot be attributed to a specific individual, the costs are billed in equal

Guest Rooms: Students wishing to reserve a guest room for an overnight guest must contact the student head of OVAL or the Assistant Dean of Student Life for Programs to check on availability. If the guest will be staying for more than two consecutive days, the host student must also notify the Assistant Dean of Student Life for Programs (as per the policy on overnight guests). Because guest rooms are officially for Admission use, Admission guests take priority over all other guests. Reservations for non-Admission guests may be revoked at any time if a guest room is needed for Admission purposes.

As the host, you are responsible for: • Providing bedding;

• R eporting any damages to the person from whom you received the key; and • A ny costs associated with damage to the room, lost keys/prox cards, etc. Keys and prox cards must be returned to the person from whom you received them on the date of your guest’s departure. By accepting the key to the guest room you agree to the above rules and responsibilities. Keys: Cards for hall entrances and keys for rooms are distributed by the Facilities Services staff. An entrance card provides access to all residence halls. If you lose your card or key, you must report the loss to Facilities Services immediately. If it is your room key that is lost, your lock will be changed and you will receive a key for the new lock. There is a fee for each key that is lost. If it is only your entrance card that is lost, there is a replacement fee. Failure to return your key at the end of the year or upon departure from the campus will result in a charge even if the key is subsequently returned. Lock-outs: If you are locked out of your room, you may come to the Office of Student Life between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and temporarily check out a key with proper identification. On holidays, weekends and after 5:00 p.m. on weekdays, contact either the Resident Resource (R2) on duty or the Department of Public Safety. An R2 or Public Safety Officer may check your ID and let you in. Only R2s and Public Safety staff can let you in; custodians are instructed not to open locked doors for students. Non-college Furniture: In an effort to avoid the health and financial issues associated with a bedbug or other pest infestation, the college prohibits upholstered furniture from unaccountable places such as craigslist, town dumps and second-hand shops. New furniture and furniture of confirmed quality (e.g., from family or close friends) is acceptable. Students are expected to comply with this ban under the college’s core values and Honor Code. In addition, the often significant costs associated with addressing any such infestation will be billed to the student(s) responsible for bringing that piece of furniture into the residence halls. Pets: No pets are allowed on campus with the exception of fish. Policies and procedures regarding fish are available from the Office of Student Life. Peddling, Canvassing and Soliciting: Students may not use or permit the use of their room for peddling or canvassing except as approved by the Office of Student Life. All peddlers must have written permission from the Office of Student Life. Soliciting in the buildings or on the grounds is prohibited.

College personnel are not to enter a room/ suite without knocking and, if asked, should identify themselves and their reason(s) for entering the room/suite. Room Alterations: Any physical alterations to a student’s room without permission from the Office of Student Life are strictly prohibited. Student Life will consult the Director of Facilities Services before permission is granted. Room Transfers: The Office of Student Life recognizes that not all roommates are compatible and at times a room change may be the only solution to a persistently difficult situation. For administrative purposes, room changes are not allowed during the first two weeks of a semester. For your convenience, the Office of Student Life maintains an available space list. In order to visit rooms with vacancies, contact the Assistant Dean of Student Life for Programs and she or he will provide the name(s) of the current resident(s) so that you may contact her or him. In order to move into a new space, you must complete a Room Transfer Form available in the Office of Student Life. Room Vacancies: If a vacancy occurs during the academic year, the remaining occupant has three class days in which to inform the Office of Student Life, in writing, of the desired new occupant of the room. After this time, Student Life reserves the right to assign a new roommate without prior notification. If at the beginning of a semester space is needed for the assignment of students not yet housed, Student Life will assign a new occupant as required. Social Gatherings and Parties: The Office of Student Life encourages social gatherings within the residence halls. Parties or events with alcoholic beverages must be registered with the Assistant Dean of Student Life for Programs. Large gatherings may require staff and/or Public Safety officer coverage at a cost to the event sponsor(s). College staff members may enter to inspect an event at any time. Event sponsors are responsible for assuring that guests adhere to college policies. Storage of Items: Bicycles, motorbikes, furniture, or other items may not be stored in corridors, stairwells, or entryways. The college strongly recommends that all valuable belongings be taken home for intersession and summer vacations. Limited storage is available through the Office of Student Life. Personal items in storage must be clearly labeled and stored in plastic bins, suitcases, or boxes that are in good condition. Personal items may be stored in designated areas, such as class penthouses. Private storage facilities are also available in the Needham area. Limited bicycle storage is also available in designated bicycle storage areas. Liquids and hazardous materials may not be kept in storage areas at any time. Unclaimed items in storage will be removed and donated to charitable organizations at the end of the spring semester. The college insures only its own property against loss. It does not insure against nor reimburse against the loss, from any

Parent Handbook 2012–13

W h aT Pa r E N T s Wa N T T O K N O W

What Parents Want to Know The following are questions that parents often have with relation to the Olin experience. In addition, many questions that parents have can be answered by reviewing the Student Handbook, Course Catalog, Olin Prospectus, Packing 101 (mailed to incoming students in mid-June) or other resources provided on the Parent website.

Safety, Health and Well-being of the Student: 1 . Who do I contact in case of an emergency? In case of an emergency, please contact Public Safety at 781-239-5555. They will best direct your call and can contact the Dean on call if it is after business hours when both the college and Health Services are closed. For general crisis announcements: students, employees and parents should check one or more of three sources: (1) e-mail, (2) the college website and/or (3) the emergency announcement number, 781-292-2699, which is also used for weather announcements. Please note the main college number, 781-292-2300 is only answered by an operator during business hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., until 3:00 p.m. in the summer on Fridays. 2 . What help will my student receive from his or her adviser? As discussed under Academics: Academic Advising section of the Course Catalog and Student Handbook, “Coursework and advising are different aspects of the same process — developing a well-educated person. Olin College views advising as a central role of our faculty. Students’ relationships with their advisers are among the most important ones they will establish here and can have a significant impact on their Olin education. The advising system includes, but is not limited to, individual advising, advising families, extended advising families, the Sibbs program, career development and course planning.” Please refer to the Academics: Academic Advising section of the Course Catalog or the Student Handbook for additional information about academics at Olin. If you have any further questions about Academic Advising, please contact Alison Black, Assistant Dean of Student Life for Advising at 781292-2327 or alison.black@olin.edu. 3 . Under what circumstances will the Office of Student Life contact parents? If a student’s academic performance falls below the standards published in the Academics: Student Academic Performance section of the Student Handbook and Course Catalog, the Committee on Student Academic Performance may place that student on academic probation. Parents receive a copy of the letter notifying the student of this status. Students who remain on academic probation for two semesters are subject

to withdrawal; of course, parents would be notified here as well. Dean Rod Crafts may call parents in the event of a serious disciplinary issue, major physical injury involving a trip to a hospital emergency room or mental health crisis. As he has explained during parent information sessions at Admission Open Houses and Candidates’ Weekends, the college acknowledges the importance of the college years as a transition from direct support of the family — through increasing independence — to life on one’s own with less-direct support from the family. We try to respect the students’ efforts to demonstrate their ability to handle this independence. However, there are times when serious disciplinary or mental or physical health issues arise and Dean Crafts must decide if parental notification is appropriate. 4 . Where can I learn more about the Olin Honor Code? Please refer to the Honor Code section in this Handbook or the Student Handbook or visit: https://www.olin.edu/student_life/honor_code.aspx 5 . How safe is Olin? As indicated in Olin’s excellent Campus Security statistics, which you can reference on pages 54 and 55 in this Handbook, and on the Olin College website at http://facilitiesservices.olin.edu/PublicSafety.html under quick link Campus Security Info., Olin is a very safe environment. In the event of an emergency, a meeting of the College Crisis Management Team is held to determine the most appropriate course of action. The Department of Public Safety for Babson and Olin Colleges provides law enforcement and oversees emergency medical responses, medical escort services, fire safety and detection, crime prevention, escorts and parking enforcement. 6 . What is Olin’s policy on alcohol and other drugs? As previously mentioned in Appendix C of this Handbook, “no student under the legal drinking age is allowed to possess or consume alcoholic beverages in college residence halls or on college property. For students who are 21 years of age or older, possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages is limited to the student’s individual room or to authorized events in public areas. In any case, large quantities (e.g., kegs, cases of liquor) of alcoholic beverages are not permitted in residence halls. The on-campus possession, use, sale or distribution of illegal narcotics, stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens, or marijuana or its derivatives is prohibited. Possession of drug paraphernalia is prohibited. Misuse of prescription drugs is also prohibited.” In order to increase awareness in the Olin community regarding social standards and alcohol, Olin offers TIPS class (Training Intervention Procedures) for all new students. Alcohol education programs and alcohol counseling are available throughout the academic year. All are encouraged to “do something” and talk with students about this issue.

Residence Halls:

Our primary goal is to prevent returning students from disturbing the Orientation program for first-year students. Given a chance to reflect on this goal, nearly every upper-class student realizes how important it was for them to have a few days of privacy as a class before returning students arrived. An equally important goal is to give our facilities staff time to get the buildings ready. The custodians and trades personnel work very hard to make students’ lives as pleasant as possible and to maintain our beautiful facilities. We ask returning students to show these staff members the respect they deserve by staying off campus until 3:00 p.m. Tuesday at the earliest. While most returning students arrive by themselves, some feel they cannot move back to Olin without help from parents and others who have job responsibilities on weekdays. In these cases, we recommend that the student arrive by her/ himself using public transportation with one suitcase for the first few days of the semester; then the parents come during the next weekend with the remainder of the student’s belongings. Of course, students can ship nearly all of their belongings and find them in their rooms when they arrive. 8 . Can parents stay in the residence halls? Yes, a parent can stay in their student’s room as long as they have the permission of the roommate. Parents are considered guests. See Appendix C, page 70 for the policy on guests. 9 . When are the Olin residence halls closed to students? Please refer to Olin’s academic calendar for residence hall schedules. The most current version is available on the Student Life, Parent and main pages of the Olin website. The residence halls are closed for winter break between semesters. During the summer, the residence halls are closed for two weeks following Commencement and for two weeks before the start of the new academic year. 10 . Are there any times that the residence halls will be open but the Dining Hall is closed? Is there an alternative location to use the Olin student Meal Plan when the Dining Hall is closed? How can students obtain and prepare meals when the Dining Hall is closed? The residence halls are open during Thanksgiving and Spring breaks but the Dining Hall is closed during these times. When the Dining Hall is closed, students may purchase food at a local grocery store and prepare meals using the kitchen area in the residence halls or the microwave in their room. Please check the Babson Dining Website www.babsondining. com for hours of operation during Olin break periods. Trim Dining Hall and/or other venues on the campus may be open. While Olin, Babson and Wellesley all have cross-dining avail-

11 . Are there any end-of-semester tips that would help my student prepare for moving out? The Office of Student Life sends the students a list of departure notes including information on keys, housekeeping and damage, information technology, summer storage and parking and more. All students must vacate the residence halls by 5:00 p.m. on the Monday following Commencement (see Academic Calendar). Please plan accordingly. The activity times can be found on the Commencement website (http://commencement.olin.edu/). Students are not allowed to move out during Commencement as this distracts from the ceremony.

Finances: 12 . How and when are students billed for college costs? Fall 2012 bills were mailed to students’ permanent address on July 2, with a due date of August 1, 2012. Spring 2013 bills are sent to the students’ local (Olin) mailbox on November 1, with a due date of December 1, 2012. Late payments are subject to a $150 late fee on all billed expenses for that semester. For more billing information, reference the Academics: Student Accounts and Records (StAR) Center section of the Student Handbook or Course Catalog. For further information, contact the StAR Center at star.center@olin.edu or 781-2922340. 13 . What are “Olin Dollars”? Olin Dollars is a debit account service feature of the Olin ID/ OneCard that is separate from the student account. Students and their parents can deposit funds into their Olin Dollars debit account and use those funds for laundry services, vending machines, Mailroom services, Olin Gear and off-campus dining at some area restaurants. These Dollars may be purchased by credit card online at https://onecard.olin.edu or by check to Financial Services in Milas Hall 316. The minimum amount to start an account is $10.00. No fees or service charges are debited from your account. Guests/parents can add funds to any community member’s OneCard using three simple pieces of information listed below. This feature is currently available to all upper-class students and it will be available to incoming first year students by August 1. To access the Guest Deposit feature go to https://onecard.olin.edu and enter the following required data: • First Name • Last Name • Olin email address (example: firstname.lastname@students.olin.edu) 14 . May my student pay for a guest meal using his or her Olin Dollars? May the guest pay cash at the Dining Hall? What may Olin Dollars be used for? All Olin Students have 10 Guest Meals per semester as part of their Olin Meal plan which they can use for any meal and any guest. When these 10 meals have been used up Olin Dollars may be used to purchase meals for guests at the Olin

7 . Why do the residence halls open at 3:00 p .m . on a Tuesday for returning students? Classes do not start until Thursday, so returning students have Tuesday evening and all of Wednesday to move in. In other words, returning students are not required or even expected to be on campus Tuesday evening.

76 Dining Hall. Preferred guests, including parents, may pay cash at Babson’s dining facilities. Please refer to the Dining and Lodging section of this Parent Handbook or the Student Handbook for more details on dining. 15 . What happens when my student’s account is overpaid? Students who have an overpaid account due to financial aid or loan proceeds will be issued a refund within 14 days after the semester begins or 14 days from receipt of the funds within a semester.

Academic Performance and Programs: 16 . Will I receive a copy of my student’s grades at the end of each semester? No, students’ grades are not sent directly to the parents. Grades are accessible to students through an online system. No paper grade reports are issued. Olin encourages parents to discuss this topic with their daughter/son before the student departs for Olin. This issue of access to grades is one of several Dean Rod Crafts has identified as “kitchen table topics” — meaning items that should be discussed around the kitchen table before the student arrives at Olin as mentioned in the Student Life presentation during Admission Open House and Candidates’ Weekends. Your daughter/son will be given access to the online system during Orientation. After that, she/he can show you how to access the system. For more information, reference the Academics: Grading at Olin section of the Student Handbook or Course Catalog. See question #3 for parent communication when a student’s academic performance falls below standards. 17 . What is Olin’s accreditation status? Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc., through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education. Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the New England Association should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact: Commission on Institutions of Higher Education New England Association of Schools and Colleges 209 Burlington Rd. Bedford, MA 01730-1433 781-271-0022 cihe@neasc.org Olin College’s three degree programs — Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Engineering — are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc., the recognized accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering and technology.

18 . What are the program objectives for each of the majors offered at Olin? Olin College offers three engineering majors — Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Engineering with concentrations in BioEngineering, Computing, Materials Science and Systems. A condensed version of the Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) is: Objective I: Our graduates will be able to make a positive difference within their profession and their community. Objective II: Our graduates will demonstrate technical competence and creative problem-solving skills that foster success in a variety of postgraduate environments, including professional practice and graduate school. Objective III: Our graduates will be prepared for and capable of appropriate response to social, technical and global changes during their careers. For the full text of the PEOs for each of our programs, please reference the Course Catalog or the Majors section of the Curriculum page on the Olin website: https://www.olin.edu/academics/curriculum.aspx

Staying Connected: 19 . What is the best way to mail a package to my daughter/son at Olin? Is there campus mail during Spring Break? Large shipments including UPS and FedEx go to Shipping/ Receiving (781-292-2271) who then delivers it to the necessary person/department as specified on the package. If the person specified on the package is a student, the package is then brought to the Mailroom (781-292-2230 or mailservices@olin.edu). Students receive an email and a notice placed in his/her mailbox informing him/her that there is a package to be picked up. Yes, Mail Services is operational during Spring Break. 20 . My daughter/son will be celebrating a birthday at Olin . How do I have a cake/flowers/balloons/care package delivered? Deliveries which are arranged through external services and are perishable should be sent to the Mailroom of the Campus Center with the student’s name on it. The Mailroom will then contact the student via phone, email, etc. to pick up his or her delivery. For further inquiries or arrangements you may contact the Mailroom (781-292-2230 or mailservices@olin. edu). Also, celebration services are offered through Olin Dining Services. Please visit us at: http://www.olindining.com/ gifts/index.html to place an order. You can also order balloons and many items not found on the website by calling 781-292-2361 or emailing the dining services director at david.nadreau@olin.edu. Note: the Mailroom is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

Getting to Olin and Its Surroundings:

22 . Where can I find maps and information about shopping and local businesses in the Needham area? Please refer to the local area maps section in this Parent Handbook.

Internship, Research and Job Opportunities: 23 . When should my student start looking for an internship, research opportunity or job? Advise your student to have a resume ready by fall career fair in early October, and to participate in at least two interviews by intersession. This will begin the process, and half the battle is getting that resume ready, pulling together the interview suit, and preparing for and making it through a couple of interviews. The rest is about acquiring new job leads and fine-tuning the process; a good spring activity! Note that companies or organizations that require security clearance — the federal government or companies doing work for the government — usually have deadlines in early October or November to ensure time for background checks. Deadlines vary when applying for research opportunities or graduate programs. They may be as early as November or as late as March. Your student should be searching for these opportunities upon their return to campus in September and make note of these upcoming deadlines. They should allow themselves plenty of time for preparing their applications, including multiple drafts of essays and plenty of lead time for recommendations they are seeking from professors. The Office of Post Graduate Planning (PGP) will have timelines available on their website regarding what they should have done, by when, and based on their year in school. Workshops and role-plays will be offered to help students through the processes described above. Our students still find great opportunities in the spring if they wait to start the process in January, but the early bird, who really starts actively looking in the fall, will have exposure to more of them. See https:// www.olin.edu/pgp/default.aspx for more information, tips and resources from PGP. 24 . Does the internship need to be engineeringrelated? It’s not as important for first-years as it is for students finishing sophomore year and up. Internships in the student’s field demonstrate to a future employer that they’re serious about their field and that the student has worked hard to acquire

How Parents May Help: 25 . As an interested parent, how can I help and be involved in my child’s education? The Office of Family and Alumni Relations (FAR) recognizes and welcomes all Olin parents, past and present, as members of the “Olin family.” Olin parents and other family members are valuable resources that continue to play vital roles in creating Olin’s social and educational community. This partnership with parents and other family members has been helpful in developing and improving initiatives such as a Parent Handbook, Student Recruitment Program (SRP), Parent Advisory Board (PAB), Family Weekend, Parent Orientation, Parent Annual Giving Campaign and much more. The PAB is dedicated to providing a wide-range of opportunities for parents, alumni and other family members to stay connected and become involved. Please refer to the Olin website for opportunities to: • v olunteer (https://www.olin.edu/Parents/volunteering.aspx) • p rovide financial support (https://www.olin.edu/giving.aspx). Contact any member of the PAB for additional information on how you may support Olin.

Massachusetts state law regarding student absence due to religious beliefs has been adopted by Olin College as follows: “Any student who is unable to attend classes or participate in any examination, study, or work requirement on a particular day because of his or her religious beliefs is excused from any such activity. The student will be given the opportunity to make up the work that was missed, provided that the makeup work does not create an unreasonable burden upon the college. The college will not level fees or charges of any kind when allowing the student to make up missed work. In addition, no adverse or prejudicial effects will result because students have made use of these provisions.” The following partial listing is provided for your information:
