After 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.

I have learned so much! Academics are great, and I love the excuse to take theology classes. They were more accepting and open than the overall campus, you really got to tackle hard theological stuff. I wish the whole campus and administration was like that. My proffessors are great, my classes are great, and there are lots of great places to study or hang with friends. We just got a space for commuters, and that helps. Workload can be very heavy, but it's all interrelated and not one assignment is ever a waste of time!

When they say this campus is "diverse" they mean that there are all different types of white, Protestant Christian denominations represented here! It's among the worst when it comes to racial diversity (blacks have a much lower graduation rate than whites). If you are LGBT you better keep quiet because if you come out, people will not want to be your roommate and they will tell you you don't belong at Olivet.
