Chime in for Otterbein on Giving Tuesday Nov. 28

Chime in for Otterbein on Giving Tuesday Nov. 28

Their letters may be different, but their spirit and love for Otterbein is the same.

Maddie Hill ’17 and Matt Cole ’16 are calling for all Cardinals to chime in for Otterbein this Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28.

Cole and Hill have found happiness and success in their post-graduate lives, thanks to student experiences at Otterbein. Through involvement on campus, internships, and service work, they strengthened their individual skills sets while growing as a couple. Both credit The Otterbein FUND for providing scholarships that kept their educations affordable and gave them many of the opportunities that led them to each other.

Cole is now working in his field of choice at the third leading radio station in Columbus, 99.7 FM WRKZ “The Blitz.” He continues to support The Otterbein FUND because he believes that the leadership skills he honed at Otterbein, coupled with the internships he earned as a student, have led to success in his career.

Hill continues to pay her experience forward as well, not only as an engaged alumna and loyal donor, but also in her full-time role as the Assistant Director of Annual Giving at Otterbein. She manages a bright group of student ambassadors who assist in annual giving outreach, and is working to develop a comprehensive young alumni philanthropy program.

“Throughout my college career, I benefitted from the generosity of others through their support of The Otterbein FUND. I’m fortunate now to be in a role where I can pay it forward and help current students have the experiences I enjoyed.” Hill said. “I’m excited to see our community come together this Giving Tuesday to help current Cardinals.”

The Otterbein FUND provides resources for the University’s strategic priorities, as well as support for student scholarships, enhancements to student and academic programming, and helps take care of our beautiful campus.
