Dining Services

Olivet College provides a variety of dining options to ensure that each student is well nourished while they live, work, play and study on campus.

The Kirk Center (KC), located on Main Street, is the primary dining option on campus and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. 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.

Students use their IDs to swipe in for meals. For the Fall 2020 semester, there will be take-away meals and limited dine-in seating.

We understand that 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. Our student meal plan – called My Meals – is designed to accommodate the various needs of all our students.

Olivet College’s food service provider, Chartwells, is committed to providing you quality food with exceptional service. If you have specific dietary needs or any questions about the food they serve, feel free to call Chartwells at 269-749-7378.

Meals per Week

Your “meal allowance” is intended to be used in the KC for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Each time you visit, we subtract a meal from your weekly balance. This balance is reset at the end of each semester. The exception to this is our Carte Blanche plan, which is explained in detail below.

Carte Blanche

This option allows you to enjoy all 19 meals offered each week in the Kirk Center – including breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday, as well as brunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday. This plan also comes with 5 guest meals each semester to treat your family and friends when they visit. Also included with this meal plan is $125 in points each semester. ($2,262.50 per semester)

100 on the Run

This plan is reserved for commuting students and students qualified to live in apartments. Enjoy a declining balance plan that offers you 100 meals each semester. This averages out to be about five meals per week. You can use meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner or brunch any day of the week. The meal balance does not carry over from fall to spring semester. This meal plan is a buddy plan, which gives you the opportunity to treat family and friends any time. Also included in the meal plan is $200 in points per semester. ($828)
