Purple & Gold Days

Join other high school seniors and their parents for an in-depth look at Olivet. Some of the opportunities afforded to students and their families during this weekend include touring the campus, meeting with admissions counselors, meeting with financial aid representatives, meeting with professors, campus meals, and either a fun-filled evening on campus or a trip to Chicago! Students stay overnight in a campus resident hall with a current Olivet student. Reduced lodging rates are available for parents at area hotels.
