Freshman year at Olivet Nazarene College was difficult for Jean Martin. She had moved from Florida to Indianapolis before her senior year in high school. Then she came to a college she had never visited before attending orientation. Some of her friends still remember how Jean did not want to be there. She missed her friends from Florida and went home to Indianapolis every chance she got. Students were allowed eight weekend passes, and she took them all.
When her sophomore year began at Olivet, Jean got involved in student government. That was the turning point for her life at Olivet. She made some of her best friends for life during her remaining years on campus. Her graduating class continues to be very active and even to enjoy special trips together. She is active on the reunion committee and enjoys staying connected with everyone.
