New Student Orientation
We are pleased you’ve decided to attend Olivet College! Attending orientation is the first step to becoming an official Comet. On this page you will find all of the information you need to prepare for orientation. Watch for 2018 orientation dates, which will be posted in the spring.
What happens at orientation?
Your orientation day will be filled with exciting new experiences. View the Student Orientation Schedule to get an idea of what’s in store! Parents, guardians, friends and family members are invited to attend Orientation too, and have a schedule all their own. View the Parent Orientation Schedule to see what activities we have scheduled.
At orientation, you’ll get to:
- Meet your professors
- Make new friends
- Adjust your schedule
- See where you’ll be living
- Explore campus
- Get your questions answered
You will be working with a professor one-on-one to register for your fall semester courses before attending your Orientation, but you will get the chance to adjust your schedule during Orientation if needed. We’ll also happily answer any questions you have regarding financial aid, housing and dining services, and other aspects of college life here at Olivet.
