Parents and Family

Welcome to the Otterbein Family.

So, you want to know what Otterbein is all about? Our orientation program will show you what it means to be a proud parent or supporter of your Otterbein student.

Otterbein University strongly encourages parents and guardians to attend Orientation with their student. We have separate sessions for family members that will help you prepare to send your student to Otterbein. You will also learn more about programs and services provided by Otterbein, get any questions answered, and meet faculty/staff and other parents/guardians.
