Welcome to Otterbein!

The educators within the Division of Student Affairs are committed to helping students have a great experience at Otterbein. Collectively, we strive to help students identify and leverage connections between their curricular and co-curricular experiences. We believe the quality of our campus life is crucial to the success of our students. We look forward to forming meaningful and supportive relationships with our students so that we can co-create a dynamic academic community.

As mentors and advisors, our staff seeks to serve as your campus advocate and help you meet your goals for your Otterbein experience. We take pride in helping you take full advantage of all the resources Otterbein has available for students. When life happens we welcome you in our offices for supportive conversations. We can provide assistance with managing an urgent concern or personal crisis, understanding campus policies and procedures, and connecting you to people and programs that will enrich your time here on campus.

Student Affairs provides each student with opportunities in individual development through quality services and programs focused on YOU- your holistic well-being, personal success, and sense of belonging at Otterbein. Our staff collaborates with students to attend to emotional, social, physical, cultural, spiritual, intellectual, and vocational dimensions of well-being. Student Affairs is also available to talk with a student鈥檚 family support network about general university policies, practices, and resources and the Otterbein Student Experience. With a student鈥檚 permission, we can talk in more detail about ways to partner to help their student.

Thank you for being part of the Cardinal family. I wish you a wonderful experience at Otterbein- indeed it is a very special place. I welcome the opportunity to get to know you and discuss with you the roles and responsibilities of the Student Affairs Division. We are proud of you and what our community has accomplished together over the years. We have an exciting vision for the future and cannot wait to see how your contributions within the residence halls, student organizations, athletics, arts, and greater Westerville community will enhance campus life in the years to come.

There is always something to do on campus, from volunteer programs and regular social events for students to cultural and educational opportunities open to the entire community.
