Annual International Students Picnic

“Coming to Otterbein was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Otterbein gave me a platform to showcase my talent, to improve my leadership skills, to demonstrate my individuality, and to broaden my global perspective. At Otterbein, there’s never a dull moment for me.”
