Senior College at Otterbein University

Seniors 60 and over may attend one Otterbein class each semester free of charge.  The registration process for this opportunity can be accessed by downloading the registration form here. Because choosing classes can sometimes be confusing, we have included below a list of options that may be particularly interesting to Lifelong Learning Community members, selected by Dr. Paul Eisenstein, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.  If you seek a particular topic or area you do not see listed, please feel free to email him with your questions, peisenstein@otterbein.edu or call 614-823-1609.   He would be happy to talk with you about our academic offerings.

Sharon Anthony, in the Enrollment Services department, offers you personal counseling regarding classes and enrollment Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  Call her at 614-823-1356 or email her at santhony@otterbein.edu for an appointment.

Please note that you are expected to register 10 days before classes begin (spring classes begin Jan. 9, 2017), so that the Adult and Transfer Education office can check your request with the class instructor.  If you have questions about the registration process, you may contact Sharon Anthony, santhony@otterbein.edu or call 614-823-1356.  Not all of our class offerings can be made available through Senior College, depending on traditional student demand and class type; see the website for further information.
Below are some suggested classes available to you. Register in December 2016 for these spring semester classes.
