What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
You have to take it seriously and try your best. It's not free!
Gloridely from Westerville, OH
Classes are very personal, with smaller numbers so you can get to know your professors and ask any questions you may have. It is all very manageable, however don't think it is easy. You have to work for what you're trying to achieve.
Hope from West Lafayette, OH
The professors are there to help, but also constantly push you to grow and reach out. The student resources are very accessible and free, and there are so many people that really want to be here that they really support each other to succeed
Elizabeth from Avalon, CA
The classes here are challenging, but many of the professors are willing to work with you and offer any assistance they can.
Nicole from Cambridge, OH
Whether you're in the Honors Program, or you're an undeclared major, the classes that a student takes part in on campus are extremely challenging. Yes, there are lectures involved, as in any course of study at any college, but it's different at Otterbein. Lectures often blossom into small class discussions among students and professors. Because classes are small, conversations become personal and connective to whatever topic is being discussed. This allows students to better understand concepts in their own way, according to their own individual thought processes. The academia at Otterbein is superb, to say the least.
Katelyn from Huntsburg, OH
Class schedules here at Otterbein are made specifically to your interests as well as your major. Aside from major and minor requirements, Otterbein also requires students to take Integrative Studies courses, in order to utilize critical thinking, and to connect topics that you never thought could be connected!
