Otterbein University celebrated the 175th anniversary of its founding in 1847 with a variety of special events at this year’s Homecoming and Family Weekend. The 50th Golden Reunion classes of 1971 and 1972 came back to campus to reconnect and take a walk down memory lane. The annual Alumni Awards ceremony and State of the University Address were held in Cowan Hall as part of the Celebration of Otterbein.
Students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends enjoyed the music of The British Invasion band, Allison Asarch ’18, Alex Toth ’22, and The Blue Jays, as well as food, fun, and festivities of OtterFest throughout the weekend.
