Otterbein University

Otterbein is a regionally-accredited liberal arts university. Since its founding in 1847, Otterbein has been recognized for its pace-setting ideals, its ground-breaking integrative studies curriculum, its standing among the country’s first co-education institutions, and its commitment to serve the public good. Located in picturesque Westerville, Ohio on the northeast side of Columbus, OH, Otterbein offers a small-town atmosphere with all the conveniences and networking opportunities of a big city. Otterbein’s 140-acre campus is accented by the historic Towers Hall, which was constructed in 1872 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Whether a student, a friend or family member visiting a student, or you are just looking for something fun to do, Otterbein offers a lot of college excitement for anyone. Check out a theatre and dance performance to be entertained and have your mind and imagination sparked. Otterbein athletics range from Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Softball, Men’s and Women’s Tennis, Men’s Golf, Volleyball and Cross Country, Track & Field, Baseball and Wrestling and have all won conference titles and gone to nationals. They also have a nationally ranked Equine Team and you can even learn to ride at our state of the art equine facilities!
