Favorite spot on campus
The picnic table by Clippinger Hall; it’s under a large tree so you have a shaded area in which to take in all the sights and sounds of campus.

Why I love my job
Being able to connect with students and families as they navigate through such an important and exciting time in their lives is an honor.

Advice for the college search
Take the time to figure out what aspects of a college are important to you as you begin your search, but also be open to all the experiences and conversations along the way, especially as you visit campuses and talk to students and faculty.

What makes Otterbein great
The positive and friendly spirit that exudes in every person and facet of the university.
