3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school is pretty safe. There is someone always available when you request for help.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The proximity of the class is the one of the good things about this school doesn't take a long walk to reach your class. The dorm life sucks curfew at 11.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at this school. The closest thing to Greek life here might be the Bible studies.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The football games suck. Not many people have school spirit.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The education part of the school is good, but the Christian part is horrible they will try to force Christianity on you.

Party Scene: This campus doesn't know how to hold an event that doesn't revolve around religion. Feels like everything is either a worship service or Bible study even when it's supposed to be for fun. The only party we have here is "Party with Jesus"... enough said.

1 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: No parties, or hanging out with the opposite sex outside of designated times or areas. 11pm curfew

Diversity: 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.

Health & Safety: Never really felt unsafe there

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice, but you are required to live on campus (not very cost friendly) and RAs vary extremely in how consistently they enforce the rules. Male RAs are well known to be lax and look the other way, at least for the residents they like, but female RAs are much more strict and it's very creepy to have your RA come check on you every night to make sure you're in bed.

2 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There is a great deal of social pressure to identify as Christian, and professors assume everyone is a Christian even if you tell them you aren't. If you are atheist, LGBT, or non-white, you'll be at worst condescended to and at best ignored. The administration cares more about their conservative donor base than the needs of students. Lots of really pointless rules and naive RAs. My worst experience was when I came home to find my dorm room door was locked and entire dorm room was being searched by my RA and RD... because the RA smelled "smoke" on my roommate (she had just come from a bonfire). The only people who think Olivet is an "accepting environment" are the ones who already fit the mold.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Olivet has a surprisingly strong athletic program for a Christian school. Except the football team, they are not good at all. But the other sports are strong and students are encouraged to attend.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I cannot imagine myself at any other school. Olivet is a place where I can learn about my passion and be encouraged in my spiritual walk at the same time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very passionate about their majors

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are amazing. So many national champions.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school as a whole is great. The friendliness of the professors is great. They actually care about you as an individual.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I for one don't participate in any sports, but the rec center on campus is great for every one. You can go rock climbing, work out, play ping pong or other tabletop games, or play in the fieldhouse.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy Olivet Nazarene University and being able to live on campus. Living in the dorms is a great experience and you get to meet many new people who you can become great friends with. Even though there isn't much to do on campus during the weekends, you can get a group of friends to hang out and have fun.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a great way for students to find their place in college

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: transitioning from high school to college was made easy by the school.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Are school sports teams are not the best in the state but, our school spirit is unreal.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is safe at night, however it is a good idea to walk around in groups late at night to ensure saftey!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my professors! They are here to insure your succeess at Olivet. They really care for you and they contribute to you your educational value greatly.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is very strongly supportive here on campus

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: No greek life on campus
