Online Event Connections
Olivet College has established Homecoming 2018 as a Facebook event. By connecting through Facebook, you can “check in” so your classmates and friends know you’re on campus, view others who have checked in, and send and receive private messages through Facebook. Use this online resource to connect with your friends! Schedule a meet-up at the Welcome Center lounge! Find each other at the football game!
