Nice small quaint college. There are many benefits of attending a small college for students considering where they want to go to school. Small colleges often offer a more personalized, flexible college experience where students can get more one-on-one attention. College life is considered a bridge in our lives between our school days and our career. It prepares us with the finest academics and platform to generate dreams into realities. It acts as a transition to prepare us to be more independent. In school, we were dependent on our parents. It is a valued and very smooth transition where we do not realize that we have become independent. One of the best things about college life is that you get a new experience every day. It often allows students to get more out of their classes than they can get taking notes in a massive lecture hall. Classroom and small group discussion can help students: Along with studying, I and my friends enjoyed a lot of other things.
Olivet College truly feels like home. Every faculty member is like family, they always have your best interest. Trying to connect with you in any way that they can. Olivet is very good with trying to help and find the best way possible to accommodate your needs. If you were to be interested in a small, private, and a school to feel at home then Olivet College is definitely your place to be!
Olivet College is a nice small campus that is easy to get around. There aren't that many people so it's not overly crowded. Almost everyone on campus including the staff is kind and friendly and help those who need it. I have so far enjoyed my time as an Olivet College student because the college is right for me. I am not big on big places, or crowded places so Olivet was the right choice. There are also many different types of clubs and organizations that except many different students. Olivet college celebrates diversity, and equality. I can't wait to come back next semester and continue being part of the Olivet college community.
