OTTERBEIN COLLEGE WESTERVILLE, OHIO Office of the President
A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT Westerville, Ohio. My Dear Young Friend:— Otterbein College extends to you the greetings of a new year—a year filled with opportunity and pleasure for every ambitious young person. The gateway to the college affords the best opportunity for personal development and service. A college in itself is no guarantee of success, but it makes success easier. There is no “royal road to learning.” Each one must carve his own career. There are no substitutes for energy, honesty, industry and studious habits. Cleanness of habits and purity of ideals are foundation stones for success anywhere in life. By the systematizing of learning and the upholding of these ideals of character the Christian College comes to the aid of young people with purpose and enterprise. It is the means by which the public expresses its confidence in ambitious young men and women. Otterbein College has stood the test of eighty-one years of service. She has made her impress upon thousands. Many of them have rendered distinguished service to society. We invite you to join this family of intellectual and moral leaders. These are the days when you are planning your college career. Let us help you do it. Many important questions will arise. The size of the college, its location, its educational stand ards and social ideals, its equipment and its teaching staff—all are important to the young student. Read the accompanying pages and if your questions are not answered, write to us or send for catalog. Yours for good success,
Life Work Recri
