Olivet College’s BSU continues water drive work for Flint

Before Thanksgiving break, the Olivet College Black Student Union (BSU) held a water drive for Flint collecting 3,200 bottles of water to send to those in need during the water crisis, which has now gained nationwide attention.

Life Long Lessons Built Through Service Learning

In 2007, Mike Fales, director of service learning and campus ministries, had an idea. He established an alternative spring break for Olivet College to test if students would be willing to give up their spring break to help a community in need. Ten students signed up, and the experience has only grown from there. Today, these trips range from weekend excursions to week long adventures and take students across the country to help communities in need, or aid in disaster relief efforts.

Seeing Red

As the collective voice of the Olivet College student body, the Student Government Association (SGA) truly knows how to make an impact. Their most recent accomplishment, an initiative to change the color of the graduation regalia to red, might be their most visible and historic achievement yet.

Starting in May 2016, students graduating at Olivet College will now don caps, tassels and gowns in the official school color.
