Review Olivet Nazarene University
Olivet Nazarene University offers something for each student. Between the strong academics and its incredible statement of faith, each student feels a sense of belonging and worth. I chose Olivet as a place for me to grow, not expecting for it to change my life completely. Thanks to the supportive faculty, I can confidently say that I am not the person I was before entering this school. The challenging academics push us as students to reach our highest potential; in addition to the strong education, I feel motivated daily in my walk of faith. It is refreshing to walk this life-altering journey alongside faculty and staff who want us to succeed and lead us in a Christ-centered education. Olivet really is one big happy family! With three more years as a student at Olivet Nazarene University, I am excited about the opportunities God is providing me with through attending this university.
Olivet is a great place, but it's true that it's not for everyone. There are a lot of rules so the whole "free range" college experience doesn't really apply here. But if you're looking for a great community of Christian believers at a reasonable price with great academics, then consider Olivet!
I visited Olivet Nazarene University and instantly fell in love with it! I loved how the environment and staff members there made me feel welcomed and right at home. The professors truly care about your success and will aide you if you are struggling. Professors and staff members are not only helping you grow at Olivet but also your future and career outside of Olivet. I loved how the environment is God based and it is so easy to make friends there on campus.
