    It is important to meet with your academic adviser to discuss a 4-year plan for scheduling and such. However, always double check with what they tell you. Get to know the school website so you can look up important things like, financial assistance/scholarships, residence options, meal plan options, course catalogs, requirements for degrees, academic calendar, etc. Otterbein is a very friendly environment; you should feel welcome and like you can accomplish anything with their multiple services (such as tutoring). If you plan to work on campus, look for employment options early. Branch out of your comfort zone and make new friends.

    Everyone receives a good scholarship, classes are small and the professors are usually quite dedicated. AP and similar courses may not get you out of general education courses, but they will help in the admission process.

    During your college search, I recommend starting as early as possible in high school and then continue narrowing down your list until the deadline of your senior year. Also, try to visit multiple colleges you are looking at, because then you can have a general idea about the college life and compare schools with academics, athletics (if playing a sport), size of campus, residential life, having your major available (even if undecided), etc.

    Get as many scholarships and grants as possible, and then get involved as much as possible to make your years count.
