175th Homecoming for Olivet College
Olivet College will be celebrating the start of its 175 anniversary beginning with this year’s Homecoming.
According to the Olivet College website, Homecoming is Sept. 28-29. A countdown clock is currently provided on the website as a way to keep track of the time. Samantha Pearl, Class of 2000 and director of Alumni Engagement, is in charge of Homecoming 2018. The theme has not yet been announced. Pearl said that the theme would be up to the students, but the main focus most certainly is on the history of Olivet College. She mentioned the need to create a Homecoming Student Committee that will help out in planning and decision making in regards to all the student activities.
