  • I personally love it living on campus here because the dorms are in the center of the campus and the quad in between all of the dorms is very nice.…

  • The dorms are starting to become dated. We also have a curfew on campus and some students despise that. I like the discipline and atmosphere and I enjoy the friendships…

    There is a main dining hall and three on campus places that serve meals. Tiger Den is more of a fast food burgers and fries joint, Nesbit is the on the go place to eat, and Tiger Den serves sandwiches and wraps.

    Sodexo is okay. Some of their food is good and sometime it is.... questionable. Since I am a vegetarian, there weren't always a whole lot of options for me. They do have gluten free food though. They have two other restaurants on campus the Red Room and the Tiger Den, both are just like regular fast food places. I really liked the few coffee places Jazzman's cafe as well as Common grounds. It is just as good as any Starbucks.

    The food at Olivet is not the best food I have ever eaten, but it is not bad. There is a good variety of food to choose from at each meal. The only complaint I would have for food and dining at Olivet is that the cafeteria often gets over-corwded and can be a bit f a hassle.

    The food in the cafeteria is almost always good, but it is unfortunately very repetitive. The desserts there are delicious. The other restaurants on campus are really tasty. Tiger Den and the Red Room serve yummy fried foods and subs.

    This is my only gripe about Olivet. Though the meals are pretty good at the beginning, everything gets old pretty fast. However, I love the to-go system that they have, and the fact that most professors will let you eat those meals in-class.

    While some students will complain about the food, the bottom line is it's really not bad. There is a ton of variety not only in the food offered but also a variety of locations to eat on campus using different parts of your meal plan.

    Academic greeks are the only greeks on campus. You wont hear much from them. You most likely wouldn't know they exist on campus.
