We are proud of you for your flexibility, patience and perseverance during this week’s unexpected transition to remote instruction for the remainder of the semester due to the recent State order.
Our fundamental mission is to educate our students – you – and we are committed to preserving your educational access, opportunity and success, regardless of circumstances. We are proud of each of you for not giving up and for facing obstacles head-on. As you move into final exams, stay focused, determined and confident. You got this!
This communication focuses on the following:
Final exam reminders
Who to contact with questions through Dec. 22
Final Exams, Nov. 21 – 25
By now, each of your professors should have let you know what their expectations are for the final exam period in your course. The full final exam schedule for all courses at the College is available on the “Academic Calendar and Final Exam Schedule” section on the home page of my.olivetcollege.edu.
Please remember that many courses do not have “final exams” per se. Some professors use class projects, papers, presentations or other methods to assess your learning. If they expect you to do a required class activity during your scheduled final exam time, such as a Zoom meeting, online exam or other activity, your professors will let you know via Blackboard. Be sure to regularly check Blackboard and your Olivet email during this important time.

The fall semester has been challenging and this continues to be an extraordinary time. This Thanksgiving, more than ever, be kind, be thoughtful, be genuine, and most of all, be thankful for the good that can be found in every day.
Open your eyes to the beauty around you. Open your mind to the wonders of life. Open your heart to those who love you. And always, be true to yourself. — Maya Angelou
