Olivet College named to list of most popular liberal arts colleges
Mar 08, 2011

Olivet College was recently named to U.S. News & World Report’s list of Most Popular Liberal Arts Colleges. In an article issued Jan. 25, the publication named Olivet among 233 institutions based on the college’s yield, which is the percentage of applicants accepted who end up enrolling at that institution in the fall. According to the report, a school’s yield is one of the best indicators of its popularity.

“It’s nice to have US News & World Report confirm what we and our students have known for some time – that Olivet College’s strong academic programs, combined within an environment of education for individual and social responsibility, is compelling and desirable for students and families,” said Olivet College President Steven M. Corey, Ph.D. “It’s also a testament to our ability to provide an opportunity for students from a diverse array of backgrounds, skills and experiences to afford a quality private college education.”

The figures in the table are from the fall 2009 entering class and show the students who were accepted, the students who enrolled, and the admit yield. The table highlights the most popular liberal arts colleges, which are schools that place an emphasis on undergraduate education and award at least 50 percent of their degrees in the liberal arts. Olivet earned a 30 percent yield for the year.
