Join the Network!


Olivet is excited to announce that our Great People Know Great People Campaign was an amazing success! In September of 2020 we called upon our Olivet alumni and friends to recommend high school students in their circle of influence. We reached our goal of 5,000 high school student recommendations and now have a strong network of over 600 Olivet Advocates. We have YOU to thank! Our new campaign: Recommend a high school senior and they will have the chance to win a $2,000 scholarship for their Olivet education!

Advocacy Runs Deep

While we have a tangible goal of 5,000 recommended students for the 2020/21 school year, advocacy as a whole runs much deeper than acquiring recommendations. We want to encourage alumni and friends to add value to Olivet through their words, actions, and resources as they go about life in their workplace, church, and community. Check out other ways to “speak Olivet” as an advocate below.

Ways to "speak Olivet” as an advocate


  • Connect Olivet students with your local job and internships opportunities through the career portal!
  • Encourage the high school students in your life to schedule a campus visit, and help them make arrangements to get here.
