This fall, Olivet Nazarene University reports the highest enrollment in the University’s 109-year history, highlighting a significant increase in graduate students and a record number of students living in housing on the main campus in Bourbonnais, Illinois.
Olivet’s historically strong trend continues for enrollment of freshmen and transfer students. Of the total 4,953 students enrolled, nearly 2,900 are undergraduates, and 2,359 of the undergrads live on campus.
“Students from across the country and around the world continue to arrive on Olivet’s campus each fall, even as enrollment is decreasing at many universities, and some are even closing their doors,” said Susan Wolff, dean of undergraduate enrollment. “Students and their families consistently value Olivet’s quality academics and career preparation in a Christian environment.”
In Olivet’s School of Graduate and Continuing Studies, enrollment tops 2,000, representing an increase of more than 21 percent over the past five years.
