Academic Support

We’re here to help you in your quest for academic success. We want your journey at Olivet to take you all the way to graduation day. That’s why we have programs in place to support you along the way.

The following services are available to support your academic success.


As a freshman, one of your first assignments is to complete the freshman seminar, Connections. Meet weekly with your instructor, two student mentors and other new students. Grow together, and learn what you need to know to succeed in college.

Benner Library

Ebooks, assignment-specific video tutorials, and scholarly research articles are just a click away when you visit the Library’s website. When you are on-campus, come in person to talk one-on-one with a professional librarian about your topic, to meet with your group in a study room, to concentrate on the Ultra Quiet floor, to print a 3D project or poster, or to use one of the many computers.
