At Olivet College, we believe that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work for everyone so success must be defined per the individual student. The Olivet faculty and staff provide the individualized attention that ensures each and every student achieves their goals in their own way, always with a helpful, little push whenever it is needed.

Senior Ryan Anderson didn’t need a push; he needed to kick in the right direction, which he did.

As the starting punter for Olivet College’s football team, Ryan has earned numerous awards for his performance, including back-to-back... Read more

Olivet College is home to 11 Greek societies, some of which are among Olivet’s oldest clubs and organizations. Each has its own rich history, mission and goals, but, the societies as a whole also share many traditions together.

Some believe the event dates back to the 1920s; however, early documents show Running Night as a solid tradition by the 1950s. While it has evolved over the years, Running Night is... Read more

An insurance career is not only challenging and rewarding, it’s also in-demand and offers higher than average wages. High school students have started to recognize the opportunity. Charlotte High School (CHS) students will now be able to take that first step toward a career in the growing insurance industry by taking an insurance course while earning free college credits, thanks to a new partnership between Olivet College and Charlotte Public...
