As fall semester 2016 becomes history, Olivet students have departed for home, holiday trips and other adventures. “Home” includes destinations in 43 U.S. states, including Alaska, Florida and Maine. Those who come from 23 other countries will include their ethnic traditions wherever they are celebrating.

In the last weeks of the semester, students focused on final exams and final projects balanced with festivities across campus and surrounding areas. They experienced Christmas parties, Santa on a Segway®, community service, lights on the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, concerts in Centennial Chapel and a host of holiday happenings.

Spring semester begins January 10, 2017. Until then, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good rest.
