The Band is Back in Town

This fall, the Olivet College community can look forward to more than just the sound of bright carillon chimes across campus.

After more than 30 years of silence, a loud buzz of excitement among students, staff and alumni has been generated by the return of the Olivet College Marching Comets.

New Library Learning Commons

Thanks to a lead gift from Steve ’82 and Melinda (Strother) ’82 Roznowski, the ground floor of Burrage Library is currently undertaking a major renovation as part of the Master Plan that will allow students to have a complete social learning experience.

“Changes such as extended hours – so students can gather, seek help and feel comfortable on campus whenever they want in a multi-purpose setting – are a big deal. I hope it will truly be a learning commons, a place to work and achieve in the community.”

Introducing the Gruen Engagement Center

The one-time home of late chemistry professor Fred Gruen, Ph.D., will soon serve as the nucleus of relationships-based education at Olivet College.

Because of Dr. Gruen's exceptional ability to engage students in outside learning, many of his former pupils remember the home fondly. “Dr. Gruen wanted his students to do well,” said Stephen Burton ’68, M.D. “At the beginning of each semester, he would give all the students his home address and phone number. He always treated us as equals, and he was glad to talk about his philosophy of life and learning."
