Tim Eilola serves as an admissions representative at Olivet College. As a recent college graduate himself, Tim is passionate about helping students explore their own 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.
