    Olivet is super expensive. Sure it is a private college, but I think i deserved a lot more scholarship than I actually received. It is non- for profit, although I am sure they waste a ton of money on things that they could be putting towards helping people's education.

    I work my passion everyday as a critical care nurse. I want to continue to work at the bedside as a nurse practitioner. I want to be debt free after several years of hard work and sacrifice to provide a better life for my family.

    I love the professors at Olivet. I love the devotionals and prayer time that they offer to reiterate education with a christian purpose. Christ is always held highest at this University. The professors here are always there for their students and love building relationships

    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.

    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.
