Favorite spot on campus 
My favorite spot on campus would have to be the Austin E. Knowlton Center for Equine Science! While it technically is not directly attached to campus, it was where I spent most of my time during my Undergrad. The facility is beautiful and the horses are some of the best. I even had the opportunity to live there my senior year at Otterbein! Waking up and seeing horses outside my front door window was quite a dream.

Why I love my job 
I love my job because I can help students find their place at Otterbein. I had a wonderful four years here as a student and now I get to continue my professional development here. I can share my experiences with students and relate to them on a personal level.

What makes Otterbein great 
Otterbein is great because it has become a home for so many students. Everyone who visits campus gets to have a little bit of Cardinal pride shared with them. Otterbein has become nationally recognized for our outstanding academic achievements and the personal connect students make with professors, staff, and life-long friends is hard to find elsewhere!
