Tim Eilola serves as a assistant director of admissions at Olivet College, and he is passionate about helping students explore their educational opportunities.
“I especially enjoy working with students from northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula because I grew up in Sault Ste. Marie,” Tim said. “Talking to students who come from a similar background to me is great. Also, I am passionate about admissions because I grew up in the field. My father has over 30 years of experience in admissions, so following in his footsteps is a dream come true.”
Prior to joining the admissions team, Tim connected with fellow students at his alma mater as a tour guide and new student orientation leader. Through these roles, Tim helped welcome high school students and first-year students to campus and also developed his relationship-building, communication and customer service skills. In addition, Tim also gained a variety of experience in sports management through his path of study.
Tim emphasizes that Olivet College is a place where all are welcomed and a relationship-based education is at the forefront. He works with students from northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.
