Olivet College

From enrollment to graduation, Olivet College is committed to your personal, academic and career success.

We love discovering what motivates you: organizations you are most passionate about; classes you love; Olivet College majors and activities that have caught your eye; how you spend your spare time.  How do we make this happen?  Our highly qualified faculty and staff are committed to engaging with you throughout the learning process.  While the learning that happens in the classroom is powerful and important, you also grow as an individual while you live and interact with your faculty and peers outside the classroom.  In fact, we often form connections with students that last well beyond graduation.  To top it off, you will learn how to apply the knowledge you acquire in the classroom to your chosen career at Olivet College.
