America, we have thousands of great colleges, which is why
this country is ranked #2 for quality of colleges around
the world. At the same time, our system has allowed
for complete scams that are really nothing more than a
closet with a powerpoint projector.
Olivet Nazarene is the epitome
of school propaganda. Everything they tell you before you get
in is a lie. This school is 90-95% brainwashed followers
with a ridiculous religious agenda.
They told you the
school is beautiful, right? No, there is 1 nice building
on the whole campus. Many classrooms should be inspected by
the state's IBI. Some classrooms are in the basements of
buildings, and there is mold growing on the wall/ceiling. The
dorms are VERY SMALL, and any room that has half-decent
size, ONU crams 3 people into so they can get
the extra $25-33 K. Many of the walls are cracking,
and the ceilings are growing more mold than a Red
Roof Inn. Don't touch the outside of any of these
buildings, you might catch poison ivy.
The education? Worthless
in the real world. Olivet assumes you'll be living their
bubble paradigm your whole life, and half the education is
extremely religious that WILL MEAN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN THE REAL WORLD OUTSIDE OF BOURBONNAIS. A few teachers are assign writing
assignments to identify what students believe, and how close/different the
views of particular students are from their own. Biases are
held by some teachers, no question.
The Student Body? One
would think that a group with such high morals, many
here would be in line for the humanitarian award. NO,
I've seen things like a student dump his cum in
the milk in the cafeteria, students with Nazi tats, students
practice the KKK, it's terrible.
The surrounding town really
has nothing to do with Chicago, Bourbonnais is in the
middle of nowhere and the only place to eat is
a Dairy Queen. THERE IS NOTHING TO DO. Because of
ONU propaganda, they do not allow any cell phone companies
to build coverage towers, they have very limited internet service
& cable channels. This is a propaganda move, and they
want you to live in their own bubble. They say
it's because they want the “students to study and practice
bible studies”... they are bullshit.
Olivet is possibly the worst
money scam in Illinois. Every other college I've visited is
better. Even a teacher here blasted ONU in one of
his lectures. I will not even get to the HUNDREDS
of fines they have FOR NO OTHER REASON THAN TO COLLECT MONEY. 25k-33k to GO HERE WHAT A JOKE.
And where does that money go? Not the dorms, not
education, not the buildings. It all went toward a new
chapel and a new organ so they can brainwash everyone
more. Seriously, that's where all the millions went to?
If you go to Olivet, plan to pay at least
$25,000 to literally ruin your life. Want to text friends
here? Won't work with no service. Students here have taken
sleeping pills every night to go to bed and not
feel the misery, no joke. Also, there are like no
days off at this school. Some students have literally packed
their bags and moved out in the middle of the
11:00 bed time? Wednesday Night bible studies? No shorts
before 5 PM? 9:00 bed time on finals nights? Wake
up for 9 AM chapel 2 times a week, or
a $25 fine? The real parties here are the bible
studies for these students. GO TIGERS GO! If you've been
sucked in on an athletic scholarship or another type of
scholarship, DONT FALL FOR THE SCAM. GO TIGERS GO!
