Visit Options for High School Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors & Non-Applied Seniors

Otterbein 101

An Otterbein 101 visit is designed with high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors in mind! We also recommend this type of visit for any senior who has yet to apply for admission to Otterbein. Our goal is to provide you with an introduction to what we stand for at Otterbein and how we hope to help you stand out in your future career.

This visit will include a small group presentation by a member of our Admissions team followed by a small group tour by a student Tour Guide. We encourage you to allow 3 hours for your complete Otterbein visit.

We also offer the opportunity for optional Academic Sessions! This includes an individual or small group meeting with select departments and programs. Should you choose to take advantage of one of our Academic Sessions, please allow an additional hour for your visit.

If you see the department you would like to meet with listed below, then we encourage you to visit on the day they are available for an Academic Session. Please be aware that not all departments are available for Academic Sessions. To see what departments are available and when, please check the grid below:
