International Student Association


International and American students visiting the North Market, as part of the International Student orientation.

Otterbein University is strongly committed to international education. Around 50 students come to Otterbein every year from about 20 countries. Our small size assures you plenty of personal attention.

Getting to Otterbein
When you arrive, you will be met at Port Columbus International Airport by a university admissions counselor or by a host family personally assigned to you (see information about the Host Family Program below). The counselor or your host family will help you move into your living accommodation on campus.

About Our Programs
The Office of Diveristy and the Center for International Education & Global Engagement jointly conduct the initial and ongoing orientation and help international students adjust to a new culture and academic system. CIEGE provides immigration and cultural advising throughout an international student's stay. The Office of Diversity coordinates activities, advises the International Students Association, and assists and counsels them in many other ways as well.

The Host Family Program
This program assigns new international students to host families in the Westerville-Columbus area who are genuinely interested in getting to know students from another culture and in sharing their own culture with them. They meet their students when they arrive (as mentioned above), invite them to dinner and to family events, take them on short excursions, and help them in many different ways. Countless enduring friendships have developed over the years from this great experience.

For more information on this and other international student activities, including the annual International Festival and Global Village Dinner and Show, visit the International Students Association webpage.
