Programs and Events

The transition into the Otterbein community involves many elements, both inside and outside of the classroom. Co-Curricular experiences have always been valued as an important part of a student’s educational experience and therefore the FYE program has significant co-curricular programming to deliver on the overall program goals. A comprehensive schedule will be published each semester with programs that are designated to meet the goals of the FYE Programs.
