Orientation 2020

Welcome to Olivet

Olivet Nazarene University makes every effort to ensure students, parents, and families feel welcome and informed. As an admitted student, once you have submitted your enrollment deposit, you are able to complete Olivet’s Orientation process. The entire Orientation has been crafted to guarantee all questions and details are thoroughly addressed!
 


You've got Options

Orientation is a summer long process, with time on campus factored in before you begin in the fall.  We have four, one-day Orientation events for you to choose from. Three of the events are on campus and one can be viewed remotely. The remote option will premier at 10:00 a.m. (CT) on Monday, and will be available to watch anytime after that. When you attend your orientation event, either online or on campus, you will hear more about the Olivet story, financial aid, academic success, music, athletics, and how to thrive at Olivet!

Please RSVP for one of the four orientations here:

Orientation 1 — July 17
Orientation 2 — July 18
Orientation 3 — July 19
Orientation 4 — July 20 (Online)

 


Finding a Roommate

(incoming freshmen & transfer students) 
First Time Freshman
You still have plenty of time to find a roommate, but it’s best to make this decision before you arrive for Orientation. We are hosting several virtual meetings in Zoom to meet and potentially find a roommate. Plan to join us for a few virtual sessions in order to meet potential roomies! If you are interested in attending a virtual meet-up with other incoming freshmen seeking a roommate, register here.

You can also take a moment to fill out the Roommate Questionnaire and we can help pair you with classmates .

Transfer Student 
All transfer housing will be assigned before Orientation. To assist in the roommate selection process, we are hosting virtual meetings via Zoom on June 22 (Ladies) and June 23 (Men). If you are interested in attending a virtual meet-up with other incoming transfer students seeking a roommate, register here.

Signing up for housing just got easier.

(incoming freshmen)
Complete the Housing Preferences Questionnaire with your roommate. (Only one questionnaire per roommate pair). Once we have the questionnaire, we will select a dorm room for you based on your preference. A Residential Life expert will reach out to you with your assignment and answer any questions you may have. You should hear from them by July 15, to ensure you’re able to check out your dorm before orientation. To help you select your preferences, we will be posting some fun videos showcasing the dorms on June 15 on the Class of 2024 Facebook Page.
