Personalized meetings are coordinated prior to your visit according to your specific interests. Students stay overnight in a campus resident hall with a current Olivet student. Reduced lodging rates are available for parents at area hotels.

Students will participate in a night in Chicago which will include the famous Chicago-style, deep dish pizza at Giordano’s Pizza.
