I am a student of Olivet so let me tell you what you don't know or what they don't tell you. If you decide to come to olivet just so you know there's no free speech here. You will get fined $25 if you swear. You will also get fined for dancing, wearing leggings, tank tops, short shorts, v necks, and if you are playing music pass quiet hours which is pass 10pm. You are only allowed to have open dorms on Thursdays and have to have the door wide open and your feet must been on the floor or guess what? You'll be fined. If your not nazarene this school will try to make you be nazarene. After your freshmen year here you will want to transfer because of how strict this school is. You are forced to go to chapel twice a week. You do have Curfew. Curfew on weekdays is 11 pm but 12 with a late pass and weekends are 1 am but 2am with a late pass. However, you only get 15 late passes per semester so when they run out...no more fun for you. The town is dead. Barely anything to do so people go to the rec center but everyone just go home on the weekends so campus is dead. I will admit that the teachers here are amazing but you won't get the full college experience here. You will be treated as a child for freshmen and it doesn't get that much better for the upper class men too.Read More
Although Olivet is on the pricey side as far as college goes, it is totally worth it. Because of the financial aid, no one pays full price to come to Olivet. I would recommend coming to Olivet for any person that is looking to go to college for a good education and more than just partying.Read More
Olivet is a $37,000 school, but I believe it is worth every penny. They are very generous with scholarship and loan distribution, and they provide different opportunities throughout the year to apply for more. For example, for this coming semester, after all of my loans and scholarships , I only have to make up $420 out of the overall expense. They also allow for monthly or bulk installments, whichever is more comfortable for the student's family.Read More
