2021 Senior Class Gift

This campaign ended on April 09, 2021, but you can still make a gift to Otterbein University by clicking here!

The journey to our senior year has been different than we imagined. While there has been a lot to celebrate, there have been struggles as well. COVID-19 has changed our Otterbein experience and many of our fellow Cardinals have faced hardship. Our Senior Class gifts to the Nigel Chatman Student Emergency Fund will help make sure that every student can pursue an Otterbein degree, regardless of their financial circumstances.

The Nigel Chatman Student Emergency Fund honors Otterbein student, Nigel Chatman '22, who was tragically killed in a car accident on September 6, 2019, during his drive to morning football practice. This fund supports students with emergency needs such as food, toiletries, books, utilities, car repairs and more. Nigel was not a student of great means and was working hard to put himself through school, something his family was very proud of. He was also very generous and would always help another Otterbein student in need - let's carry forward this tradition in his memory.
