Otterbein University International Student Insurance

General Information

Otterbein University was founded in 1847. It is an above-average, private, liberal arts University.  Located in Westerville, Ohio, the school was one of the first to include women faculty members in their ranks. It was founded by the Church of the United Brethren.

Otterbein’s 140-acre campus is accentuated by the historic Towers Hall, constructed in 1872.

Otterbein University Academic and Research Opportunities

Otterbein requires students to take a wide variety of courses. Its hallmark is the link and connection students make between disciplines. Their general education and co-curricular programs provide vital spaces for students to think outside of their major.

There are two main sections to the University:

  • School of Art and Sciences: This houses departments and programs in art and science; providing programs for film, theater, dance and music.
  • School of Professional Studies: This is home to departments and programs in business, accounting & economics, education, equine science, health & sports sciences, and nursing.

Nursing is the most popular major at Otterbein University. That is closely followed by Art or Art Studies and Psychology.

Health Risks for Otterbein University International Students

Ohio's nickname is "The Heart of It All" – if you squint a bit while looking at its outline on a map, it does have some resemblance to the shape of a heart. This state is centrally located in the U.S. and has played a central role throughout the history of the U.S.

It’s the birthplace of aviation, the mother of U.S. presidents, and the location of the Underground Railroad – Ohio has a lot to see during your stay.

In general, Ohio is a pretty safe state and Westerville a relatively safe city. There are some things to be wary of, though. 

Motor vehicle theft is a problem in the area. Make sure to park your vehicle in protected spaces whenever possible. Hide anything someone might want or take it with you, always take your keys, and always lock your car properly.

Natural disasters in Ohio are few. It is one of the states with the low risk of a natural disaster occurring. The times disasters have struck, though, have been devastating. Staying prepared is always a good decision.
