The OTM program is a program within the residence halls to recognize outstanding individuals, areas, and programs. If an OTM nomination receives campus recognition, it is forwarded on for regional recognition, and then for national recognition if recognized regionally. The Fairman Centre community has received all three levels of recognition for an OTM in the month of April for Community.
