Olivet College is a small private school that has a simple campus to maneuver through. Any one who attends Olivet will know everyone and the teachers will know you by your first name instead of a number. It is a safe environment for students and the staff will make you feel right at home.
Tips for prospective students
Try new things, go out for a sport or some type of intramural team. Don't be afraid to be afraid to make new friends or to come out of your comfort zone. Attending Olivet is a new experience where you can start fresh and go into it with a new you.
Academic Rigor
Definitely more challenging than a community college/high school.
Great for these types of students
Students who want a small learning environment and who want more help from teachers who will be available to satisfy your needs.

Like all colleges, it has it's good and it's bad. This is a good college is you want to play sports. The professors and staff are very helpful and you will get a large financial break if you live close to the college.
Tips for prospective students
Campus visit before you decide, and get involved on campus.
Academic Rigor
Some professors will push you harder than others, but you will definitely learn.
Dorm Life
Depends on the dorm that you are in, some dorms are stricter than others, and the heat and water goes out a lot, but usually comes back right away.
Food and Dining
For campus food, the food is usually pretty good. There is also lots of places that are open through out the day, such as the coffee carts, and the cafe's in the library and by the bookstore.
What to do for fun
The town of Olivet is really small, so if you're looking for something fun to do you leave and go into Lansing or Charlotte. A lot of people have parties on campus though if that's what you're into.
Bang for the buck
If you live near by you get a really great discount, and they offer student loans as well, so it ends up being really cheap.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
We have a midnight breakfast to kick off the year for the campus that is always very fun.
Great for these types of students
If you're into sports or parting then this is the place for you, if not, then it might be hard for you to feel comfortable here.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs on campus and it is easy to start one if you haven't found one that you want to join.
Greek Life
The Greek sororities and fraternities are huge on campus, and some people are very divided into their certain Greek clicks.
Campus Safety
Campus Safety is very friendly and very present.

Am learning a lot
I find that the if you try your best the teachers will try their best to help you learn the most that you can.
Am enjoying being here
The college has student activities the rang to cover all personalities you just have to get up and find it. If you don't find one they are accommodating about letting you start one of your own.
Bang for the buck
Along with the normal grants and loans from the state different departments have some of there own to help their students out.
Tips for prospective students
If you can go see the college and talk to the teachers not just administration. Talk to the department that you are interested in joining.
Great for these types of students
I would say great for most students.
