Celebrating the Past, Creating the Future: The Otterbein University Turf and Track Project

The vision for Otterbein Athletics is a simple one: To consistently be recognized as one of the best broad-based Division III athletic programs in the country. Such a vision would be impossible if it were not for the generations of former student-athletes, coaches, and support that have laid the foundation for the program. The Otterbein University Turf and Track Project serves this vision in creating a multi-purpose facility that will impact every student-athlete and the entire campus community. Learn more.
