Programs and Events

The transition to the Otterbein community involves many elements, both inside and outside of the classroom. Co-Curricular experiences have always been valued as an important part of a student’s educational experience and therefore the FYE program has significant co-curricular programming to deliver on the overall program goals. A comprehensive schedule will be published each semester with programs that are designated to meet the goals of the FYE Programs.

Fall FYS Co-Curricular Events

Events are open to all Otterbein students.

Many of these events require that you pre-register.  You must register for events you plan to attend at least 48 hours in advance.  If you do not pre-register, you will not be guaranteed a space at the event.  Your instructor may allow you to attend campus events not listed below.  Please consult with your FYS professor to determine what is considered an approved event for your FYS section.  

Registration can be done by clicking the registration link below.
