Olivet College Reviews
Classroom sizes are great because at this College your professor will actually know your name and work there hardest to help you. Campus life before Covid was great it was always something to do like open gym where a lot off people would go play basketball, you can what’s movies in the movie theater, or something would be happening in the square. The party life is great too every weekend most of the Greek houses would open up and you’ll see everyone enjoying the party. Olivet college is what you make it honestly joining sports teams, clubs, or fraternity/ sorority is a great way to meet a lot of people. Around campus we have two gas stations, a sports bar, and a breakfast place called willow tree but anything else you’ll have to drive 15minutes away to Charlotte where they have Walmart, Taco Bell,McDonald’s and more. We also just got a ice skating rink installed around 12/26/20 so that should be fun
I never did an online course with Olivet College, but when the pandemic took over, we had to switch to Remote Learning. I really dislike the Remote Learning due to Covid 19, because I'm very up close and person learner, and I enjoy the classroom atmosphere, so that wasn't the best at all not being on that. Online learning was as consistent as the personal classroom was for me because there were some assignments I didn't know about that would pop up, and we had zoom meetings that took place of the classroom. The professor made it pretty easy because they rewrote a syllabus for us to look at, and some professors would email us about an assignment.
I really liked being at Olivet College because, I was able to branch out and meet new people and become really close friends with, I was able to see strong support from a professor to a student, the tutors where really helpful, kind and smart, the Greeks where nice for say if someone was intoxicated and needed help back to their dorm. Attending Olivet was very feasible because the campus is small so it wasn't a far walk to classes. I wish that the college had more clubs, and a theater program. I also wished that the dorms looked a bit more home like. I would like to see more interesting events and things with the college.
