Review Olivet University
The buildings on campus are both part of Olivet's history and some are brand new. The school just opened a HUGE engineering building and recently built a 4-floor recreation center and chapel - that's right...mainly on the donations of alumni (not out of student's pockets). The dorms, though not new, are improved upon each year. The campus makes an effort promote recycling by putting bins all over the place. Trash is rarely found on the ground. One complaint, there is definitely a strong population of squirrels...they are everywhere!
There is no shortage of coffee around campus! Outside of the main dining hall, there are three coffee locations around campus. There are also grab and go meals for between classes, a fast food place, and a place called Tiger Den (mix between Subway/Panera). For a small campus, I would say the dining is better than most expect.
They don't offer on-campus housing so not sure how to grade. I'd give it an A- for the assistance the school offered. They let you know ahead of time that there's no oncampus housing. Each student has to find a place on their own but they can request assistance from the Student Life department. Julia from the department was helpful. She recommended several options and helped connect me with a roomate. I needed one to split the cost....SF is expensive! I used to live on Treasure Island with a fellow Olivet University classmate. There were lots of other students living on the island, mostly from the Academy of Art school. Location was decent as the bus ride to downtown wasn't too long across the baybridge. Rent was modest for a 2 bedroom house compared to other tiny apartments downtown. I'd take morning jogs and the view on TI is beautiful. Just don't come home too late, it gets pretty shady when nightfalls. Now that the city of San Francisco is converting Treasure Island into a tourist destination, we couldn't live there anymore. Now I'm settled in a cozy apartment, pricier, but closer to the school. If you can still get onto Treasure Island, its a good deal...or was.
