The F.W. Olin Center

The Olin Center contains 11 technology-enhanced classrooms. There is an open access lab and a multimedia lab, open until midnight most nights and 24 hours during Week 10 and Finals week. Audio and video editing equipment is available, as well as scanners and a poster printer. You can reserve an Olin classroom by e-mailing Bonnie Hewitt. You can also checkout a variety of equipment (laptops, digital cameras, DV Minicams, etc.) If you would like to checkout equipment, contact Laura Meyers.

Video programs can be recorded and played back over the campus cable system, on channel 18. ITS can assist in CD and DVD duplication. We also have a repositionable satellite dish so we can download live satellite video feeds. We can also access live web broadcasts and project them to any classroom in Olin.
