5 College Sophomore

Academics: We have the best possible profs of anywhere around.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my major! I am studying Spanish and ESL and have awesome profs.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Because I am a Spanish major, I do not have to get into the program itself. As far as admission to ONU, good grades and ACTs.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Basically always winter, except one month of fall and one month of spring.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The best places to go are Taco Bell, Applebee's, Panera, BWW, and Papa Johns.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: I generally use my laptop, but we have an abundant amount of computers on campus, especially in the library.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not a fan of athletics, but our new rec center is fun for everyone.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is a VERY small amount of drug use at Olivet, mainly by students who do not want to be here in the first place.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: A lot of ethnic diversity on campus, which I love.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: I understand the parking policy, but I received two tickets in one weekend for parking where I have parked the past two years, under the impression it was permitted. I did not know about the first ticket until I received two emails.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Olivet does have some strict policies, but we appreciate most of them because it prevents the party scene that many public universities have.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I have my car on campus, but the furthest distance you would need to travel is 1.5 miles to Walmart.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love our housing at Olivet, the only issue is that the dorm rooms are pretty small.

3 College Junior

Transportation: I know that the school offers a shuttle system to the airport and I have shared rides home with people many times.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: We are a dry campus and I love that! I did not want to be around that scene when I came to college. Like anywhere there are people who take part. I don't want to be naive and say no one does, but I never hear about it. People who do keep it to themselves because they know about the consequences of being caught. So I love the dry atmosphere!

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: In Bourbonnais there are a lot of places to eat which is nice. There are also 3 movie theaters and a sub-par mall. There is a place to go ice skating and a few cool parks. The nice thing is that our town is close to a lot of bigger cities and Chicago. Orland Park/Frankfort is fairly close and has a great mall and a lot of food places. Chicago is a quick train ride away which is a lot of fun.

5 College Junior

Majors: I LOVE MY MAJOR! Like I previously stated the professors are awesome and soooo helpful!! I absolutely love how they encourage us and bend over backwards for us!

5 College Junior

Majors: I have not student taught yet, but in my field experience I have been placed with a lot of helpful teachers who I have learned a lot from.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love my professors. The Education school is fantastic!! They are all so caring and truly want you to succeed. Their doors are always open for students to meet with them. There are a lot of places on campus to complete homework and study.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Everyone is required to live on campus unless over age 22, a fifth year, or living at home with parents. There is all on campus living for students. With this there are on campus apartments. One just pays the normal room and board. There is no rent which is fantastic. I really love living in the oncampus apartments. Plus there is enough parking and you are close to everything you need within walking distance.

3 College Junior

Weather: It is very windy here becasue it is quite flat. It is the midwest to it varies all the time. This winter was rough and we have 3 snowdays. But in past years the winter has been quite warm.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Yes our school is expensive but we have a lot of scholarships! I got about half my tuition paid for just from academics. There are also a lot of other scholarships to apply for.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is a lot of safety precautioins on campus. Public saftey is always patrolling. There is also a variety of emergency phones around campus. Public safety makes sure that everyone has their number and if you ever feel unsafe they will come pick you up.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There tend to be quite a few relationships at our school and many get engaged by their senior year. Students tend to be very put together and many do not typically wear sweats to class. There is a dress code here, but it really is not a big deal. It is enforced but I have never had a problem with the dress code.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Our school is striving to be more diverse. There is a lot of diversities in our school and as a body we are very execpting of diversity.
