Sydney Miller, PMBA 44, is a former journalist & editor, and perpetual student. She writes the following for the Olin Blog.

On March 30, 1917, the charter for a business school at Washington University in St. Louis was approved by the Board of Trustees. To celebrate Olin’s 100th anniversary, hundreds of students, faculty, and staff gathered in Frick Forum and the Atrium for food, music, a photo booth and a balloon drop (photos below).

We aren’t finished celebrating. Please join us April 20-22 for Celebration Weekend, where we will honor alumni achievement and celebrate 100 years of excellence in business education.

And, as always, please continue sharing your Olin memories using #Olin100 on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. We will continue to showcase your posts and share Olin’s history on our Olin Centennial site.
