Dining Services

Olivet College provides various dining options to ensure that students are well-nourished while they live, work, play and study on campus.

The Kirk Center (KC)

Eating in the Kirk Center — or the KC, as our students call it — is a daily social event. We also want to ensure that you never have to worry about your academic schedule, eating patterns or social life getting in the way of breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Healthy options and fan favorites are served buffet-style at several stations. Diners can relax in booths or enjoy their meal in large groups at high-top tables.

Breakfast selections include fresh fruit, yogurt and main dishes such as scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage (sometimes both!) as well as pancakes, biscuits and gravy, French toast and other staple breakfast dishes.

Made-to-order sandwiches and wraps, pizza, a salad bar and soup are staples during lunch and dinner. Other fresh and homemade options rotate at stations, including world foods and American classics. If you have specific dietary needs, the KC staff will happily work with you to meet your needs.

Students use their IDs to swipe in for meals.
