Fitness Opportunities and Comet Athletics

Fitness and athletic opportunities are essential aspects of the overall health of individuals. Developing good recreation habits contributes to the physical, social and mental health of students.

Fitness Opportunities

All students have access to the Laimbeer Fitness Center located on the main campus in the Upton Student Recreation Center. Student-athletes have access to the Cutler Event Center, which is two blocks south of the main campus.

Students also take advantage of other spaces around campus for outdoor activities, including Blair Lawn for ultimate frisbee, the center Square for hammocking and Dole Lawn for a game of cornhole.

Our rural community is also a safe place for walking, jogging or bike riding any day of the week.


Intramural Sports

From disc golf to dodgeball, flag football to sand volleyball… more than 200 of our students participate in our intramural sports programs during any given academic year. Participation is free, games are competitive yet fun and anyone can participate. Games are structured around your schedule — so it isn’t uncommon to see a spirited game of basketball going at 11 p.m!


Comet Athletics

The University of Olivet is a founding member of the nation’s oldest collegiate athletic association, the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association and an NCAA Division III school. Our athletes love what they do and they work hard. As a Comet, you’ll get the opportunity to wear UOlivet red and compete with teammates just as dedicated to the sport as you are.
