Most Helpful Review for Otterbein University
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Tara from Columbus, OH
  • 8 out of 8 people found this review helpful

The small class sizes and individual attention from one's professor (as opposed to a graduate assistant as is the case at most large schools) sets students up for success. It's impossible to just blend in during a class.

    Costs a lot of money, but classes are alright. Most professors are cool, but most of the office staff will probably screw things up a few times. The food is pretty bad about 70\\% of the time in my opinion with the exception of a few items.

    the campus and staff were amazing and very enjoyable! the layout of the school was very convenient, and the precision allowed by the small class sizes makes otterbein perfect for specific majors. the location of the school near columbus and other larger cities was ideal, and the feeling of the small town college was great.

    Very small, but lovely campus. More individual attention from professors, most of the time. Filled with (mostly) nice people.

    I had a very bad experience at Otterbein and I'm transferring after this semester because they are very fake. No one at this school is looking to help or support you, they just are in it for themselves. If you like a very high school and cliquey environment, then you've found the right school.

    Good for students who truly want that small school feeling. Pretty campus with more focus on education than anything else. Known for theatre, music, nursing, and equine programs.
