Otterbein University is a private, four-year liberal arts college in Westerville, Ohio, United States. The university was founded in 1847 by the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. As a result of a division and two mergers involving the Church, the university has since 1968 been associated with the United Methodist Church. It features programs in engineering, business management, education, and music, as well as programs and pre-professional advising that prepare students for study in law and medicine. It has over 70 majors and over 40 minors. The university is named for United Brethren founder the Rev. Philip William Otterbein. In its 2012 edition of America's Best Colleges, Otterbein was ranked 16th in the "Regional Universities (Midwest)" category by U.S. News & World Report. In 2010, Otterbein College changed its name to Otterbein University to reflect the increasing array of graduate and undergraduate programs offered.

It is notably an undergraduate institution(with 2700 students), and 400 graduate students on the campus. Students come from all 50 states and from more than 44 international countries. Otterbein has nearly 170 student organizations and a popular Greek presence.
