Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I chose to attend Otterbein for my B.S. in Psychology and I am so happy with my choice which prepared me for the field I am interested in. As well, Otterbein connected me with the ABA Therapist position I have been at for nearly 4 years. Otterbein has great resources on campus, networking opportunities, inviting environment/community, and wonderful people to meet. The campus is beautiful as is the town of Westerville with coffee shops and little spots to eat, which is where a few of my classes met. Otterbein University is a unique school with challenging but knowledgable professors. I would recommend it for students looking for small class sizes to connect and work with professors better.

Degree: Health Services/Allied Health/Health Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I couldn't speak highly enough about the experience I have had at Otterbein! Four years ago as an incoming freshman I had my heart set on becoming a nurse. As I adjusted to my new life as a college student my dream of being a nurse became cloudy and I wasn't so sure that nursing was the career for me anymore. As many of you who have changed your major know, this can be one of the scariest feelings a college student can face. Otterbein has resources unlike any other university I visited when I was looking into undergraduate universities. I spent time in our Center for Student Success where I was guided through different processes trying to decided what it was I could see myself doing for the rest of my life. I landed on the idea of potentially becoming a physical therapist. I was set up with an academic advisors who, along with being a full time faculty member, was also a licensed physical therapist. As I progressed through my major, I grew not only as a student but as a person. Now I am graduating in May and will be attending Duke University to pursue my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and I couldn't be happier!

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2008

I am a 2008 graduate of Otterbein University's Department of Theatre and Dance. While I am thankful for my degree, the best thing I left Otterbein with is my Liberal Arts Education. In my sophomore year I discovered that choosing to take a BA, as opposed to the BFA in Theatre, left me without the acting, performance, and audition classes I felt I need to be competitive in the program and beyond. So I designed a second degree in Dance Choreography which allowed me to explore multiple avenues in my education. I designed the degree to require classes outside the department with the mentality that to create art, one must know art. I took classes in poetry, gender studies, creative writing, photography, and art history, to name a few! I became a global learner, discovering my place in our culture and my place as a global citizen. With a liberal arts education, students don't just take a science class, you learn why the course content will matter in your life beyond college. Otterbein professors challenged all students to think bigger than themselves and to connect to people on a level outside of their comfort zone. So, if you are looking at Otterbein, regardless of your department or major, the best thing about this school is the time you will spend immersed in your liberal arts education.
