Olivet honored as "College of Distinction"

Posted: Oct 18, 2012

Olivet is now featured on, a website dedicated to honoring U.S. colleges and universities that exhibit excellence in student-focused higher education.

“Schools designated as ‘Colleges of Distinction’ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country,” said Tyson Schritter, executive editor of Colleges of Distinction™.

Colleges and universities are nominated for participation in Colleges of Distinction through high school counselors’ recommendations, as well as quantitative research.

Once nominated, the colleges are assessed for four distinctions: student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community and success of graduates. Olivet was found to excel in all four distinctions and will receive a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction website. offers dynamic college profiles and easy-to-use search tools for students, parents and counselors. The website includes tips from high school guidance counselors and essays from college students, presidents and other members of campus communities.
