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.

You may customize your day by choosing from the available appointment requests (academic and athletic) through the registration form. We look forward to welcoming you to campus!

For any additional requests you may not see listed as options through the registration form, please contact our Campus Visits Team by phone, 614.823.1500, or email, campusvisits@otterbein.edu, to find out what Otterbein is able to offer you!

Saturday Visits

Otterbein recognizes that you may not be able to visit with us on a weekday, which is why we offer select Saturday visits throughout the academic year. We offer our Otterbein 101 visit option during regularly scheduled Saturday visits. This visit option includes a small group presentation as well as a small group tour.

We also offer large group visit options with specialized visit programs throughout the academic year. Please check the website later in the year for specialized large group visit programs.
