Overall Rating

Olivet has a lot of good qualities, but also some major problems. If you are looking for a very safe, monitored educational experience with a religious perspective, it is right for you. However if you are looking for the typical college experience, you will not find any parties and will feel very restricted in what you are allowed to do. I love the professors and classes, and campus is beautiful, but the feel of this kind of environment is not for me.
