Olivet College announces record enrollment
Sep 21, 2010

With 407 new students and an 81 percent freshman retention rate from the previous academic year, Olivet Colleges undergraduate enrollment stands at 1,136 students. It is the eighth consecutive year that fall enrollment has surpassed the 1,000-student plateau, according to an announcement by Larry Vallar, vice president for enrollment management.

Once again Olivet College is proving to be the choice liberal arts college for Michigan students, said Vallar. I am very proud of the work our admissions staff, coaches and faculty are doing to help bring Olivet College to the communities across this great state. Baked in the word Olivet is live. Our staff has done a wonderful job of articulating how students live and learn at Olivet College. We continue to achieve record undergraduate enrollment, which speaks well of our institution, programs and service to students.

Olivets enrollment continues to increase each year thanks to new and improved academic programs, state-of-the-art facilities, strong financial aid packages and retention services. During the past year, the college has introduced several new academic majors and minors, including a sports psychology major and dual discipline in visual art therapy and business, as well as a Master of Business Administration in Insurance degree program. The college also recently opened its $3 million Riethmiller Blackman Art Building, as well as the Gruen and Speare Student Resource Center, which provides students with academic resources such as tutoring and career services. Recruiting efforts also continue to improve, thanks in part to the implementation of the Olivet College Community Connection Grant, which significantly reduces the cost of tuition for area students.
