The UOlivet Advantage

Reaching your full potential doesn't have to be a struggle. The UOlivet ADVANTAGE presents a commitment to unparalleled opportunities, with unrivaled value, for each student.

Graduation in Four Years

… or the fifth year is free!

The University of Olivet believes it’s essential for our students to graduate in four years for two reasons: less student loan debt and more earning potential over a lifetime of employment.

To achieve this goal, you will work closely with your adviser to prepare an academic plan that maps out your four years of study. By taking ownership of your academic plans, you also take ownership of your optimal potential. And by graduating on time, you will get a jump start on earning power and be well ahead of your peers at public colleges and universities, where it takes an average of five to six years to graduate.


Global Learning Opportunities

The vacation of a lifetime … with a side of education!

You will be made aware of valuable information about study abroad opportunities, including resources to help you pay for costs associated with each program.

Global learning opportunities allow students to pursue diverse and innovative educational experiences abroad. Getting the chance to travel the world to expand your education while also exploring cultures provides incomparable and often life-changing experiences that round out a fantastic The University of Olivet experience.

Participating in the global learning program will give you a competitive edge as you immerse yourself in the cultures, identities and perspectives of countries worldwide. You will develop global mindedness and greater acceptance, giving you a unique perspective to working and living with others.


Service Learning Opportunities

With success comes responsibility, both to one’s self and to the greater community.

At The University of Olivet, service learning opportunities are more than the usual volunteer opportunities. We provide you with opportunities to apply the knowledge acquired in class to career interests in diverse communities.

  • Service learning is an innovative educational approach that integrates meaningful, hands-on community projects with class instruction to enrich your learning experience.
  • Every major discipline offers a course that explores and addresses real-world problems in the classroom and beyond campus boundaries.
  • Service learning projects will broaden your perspective and aid in demonstrating how you will ultimately fit in the overall community and the world.

Here’s a sampling of places where The University of Olivet students have helped communities through service learning: Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michgan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Costa Rica, Peru and Puerto Rico.


Industry-leading Internships and Research Opportunities

In today’s competitive market, real-world, hands-on experience gives The University of Olivet graduates an advantage over their peers.

You will have opportunities for internships or research experience in your field of interest. Our advisers will use an expansive contact portfolio to pair you with the perfect internship or research experience, no matter your major. You’ll create connections and gain real-world experiences that will move you to the front of the competition during your job search. Then, when you graduate, you will have the confidence to take on the world, no matter where your career takes you.
