Olivet Installs 3,100 Solar Panels on the Roofs of the Perry Center & Hawkins Centennial Chapel.

This summer, Olivet Nazarene University began work on the installation of 3,100 solar panels on two campus buildings through a partnership with SunVest Solar. The Perry Student Life and Recreation Center and the Betty and Kenneth Hawkins Centennial Chapel were selected as ideal buildings for solar panel installation due to their large, flat, and relatively new roofs. The installation process will take a few months to complete and the University is hopeful to begin generating clean energy by the start of the school year.

Recipients of Pence-Boyce Research Grants Pursue Intensive Projects.

This summer, five Olivet Nazarene University students and their faculty mentors will pursue intensive research projects funded by grants from the University’s Pence-Boyce Research Committee and ONU Catalyst. 

Students and faculty will receive generous stipends to support their research over a ten-week period during the summer of 2021. The Pence-Boyce scholarship allows students to focus their summer exclusively on experiments and other hands-on research, which supplements the lecture-based learning during the school year.
