Because seating in the planetarium can accommodate only 50 students, for larger groups that need to be divided or groups that wish to extend their visit, there is a variety of other potential activities on the campus of Olivet Nazarene University. Information on these can be found below. For other off-campus areas of interest for visiting groups, please see the Local Activities page.
Come and visit Shine.FM 89.7, Positive.Hit.Music for Chicagoland and northwest Indiana. Students will receive a short tour of the station which includes a brief interactive recording session and production demonstration. Contact Kristen Lewis at 815.939.5330 for information and scheduling.
Treat your students to a hands-on science experience with Olivet’s student chapter of the National Science Teachers Association. Olivet education majors have prepared a selection of interactive science lessons for various grade levels to be presented to campus visitors. Contact Tina Bruner at 815.939.5395 for more information.
Give students a taste of college life by meeting with an Olivet admissions counselor. Student ambassadors are available to meet with classes and answer questions regarding college preparation, choosing a college, and applying to schools. (Available for junior high and high school groups only.) For more information or to schedule a meeting during your campus visit, contact Jean Milton at 815.939.5215.
Olivet's science building has many interesting display cases and exhibits to visit. Reed Hall is open to the public without appointment during regular business hours; however, visitors should please remain mindful of lectures taking place in the classrooms.
