What You’ll Do

Meet Other Students

Current students will serve as your hosts for the day as you tour the campus, visit classes, dine together, and jump into the Olivet scene. Many students make new connections with other visiting families, as well.

Make Your Plans

Each visit includes a brief session with your personal Admissions Counselor, where you can ask the burning enrollment and financial aid questions, and map out your plan for success at Olivet. 

Explore Our Academics

Meet with a professor in your academic area of interest and learn what it would be like to be a student in that program. If you're still deciding, that's okay too! We can still connect you with some incredible faculty that will walk you through the process of becoming a college student.
