What I consider the best thing about Olivet College is the fact that it is the right size, its not to small or to big. The class size is one of the other things that I consider the best thing, because you can get more attention if you are in a room of 25 people compared to 300 or 4000 at some other university. Another good thing is the greek life, if they want to they can going one and it could be one of the best experiences they have ever had, and it last for lifetime.

The best thing about Olivet College is how the staff are all genuinely interested in helping students succeed. As a transfer student from a local community college, I had never been to a four-year university and was more than a little nervous about enrolling, but the admission's office, financial aid's office and guidance counselor made it a smooth transition. I felt as though each person who met with me really took the time to get to know me and understand my ambitions. My first day of class was similar. For professors and students alike, success is key.
