First of all congratulations! It is going to be an awesome year full of wonderful experiences!
It is really cool that you have found your way here to OLO's website! Together with your tutors, we want to help you start your studies off on the right foot so that you can have a successful and awesome first year!
We have collected a little information package for you, because we, too, were once freshers and know that, at the start, things can get a little confusing! On our website you can also find information about what OLO ry does, so check that out!
Every group has a board tutor in addition to regular tutors, and they can tell your group more about OLO and will gladly answer any questions you may have.
