Olivet is excited to present the “Great People Know Great People” advocacy campaign. We are asking the Olivet community for support by recommending high school students in your circle of influence to attend Olivet. Our goal is to reach 5,000 recommendations by August 30, 2021. Not only will you be moving forward the mission of Olivet, “Education with a Christian Purpose”, but you will also have opportunities to get free Olivet swag! Check out the different items below and recommend your first student.

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.
