Once a Transfer, Now a Tiger

Students considering transferring colleges often express a concern that they might be labeled as "the transfer" for the rest of their college career. At Olivet, our transfer students become part of the student body from day one. Once you step on campus you'll realize that you're no longer a transfer, you're a tiger.
