What Visit Should I Sign Up to Attend While On Campus?
Please choose the option which best aligns with you. Please keep in mind that you will choose "visit type," which is the category you will sign up for, based on your current year in high school. "Student type" refers to your current year in high school or the year you graduate from high school. This will help you determine which campus visit option is right for you! Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Admission at 614.823.1500 or email us at UOtterB@otterbein.edu. Thanks for your interest, and we look forward to having you visit campus!
