Am learning a lot
It is all about how much effort you put into your educational learning experience. I am paying an exorbitant amount of money to go to Tiffin, but I am definitely making the most of my resources and connections here.
Am enjoying being here
Even though the campus is ultra small, it makes getting to know people a lot easier. Since roughly 85% of the student body is involved in athletics it is enjoyable making friends because a majority have something in common. I met my best friend at Tiffin and my current boyfriend! I really do love the small town aspect and the intimate relationships built with friends and professors.
Bang for the buck
I have learned so much from my professors. Again, it is the effort you put into it though. Many professors will give you their home phone number and help you outside classroom hours, which is extremely useful if you are uncertain about an assignment.
Tips for prospective students
Do not be shy the first couple weeks of school because that is when most of your friendships bloom. Also, ask your professors for help... that is what they are there for!
Great for these types of students
Athletes and highly motivated scholars

Will learn a lot
I plan to go through either the Government and National Security or the Homeland Security and Terrorism programs and go into a Law Enforcement career or into the Air Force after I graduate and the skills I will learn here will definitely help me reach those goals.
Will enjoy being here
Very much so! I come from a school town/school atmosphere already and this school will be just the right size for me. Not too large, and not too small. a good variety and amount of students.

Will learn a lot
This will be my first experience away from home and my parents and this will give me the opportunity to show them how independent I am.
Will enjoy being here
The college is small and has a family atmosphere and that's very attractive to me.
Bang for the buck
I didn't realize how expensive college could be but I intend to make the very best of this experience.

Tiffin University is a very small campus. You don't have to worry about anything everyone here is really nice! Do not worry about getting lost everything is literally right here.
Tips for prospective students
Don't worry about getting lost here on campus. You can't get lost here, everything is literally right in front of you. Get to know your professors! It will definitely pay off in the long run.
Academic Rigor
It is not easy to fail here. This school gives you so many opportunities so that you don't fail out of school, one would be crazy not to take up on all of the opportunities.
Dorm Life
It's really hot in the Freshman dorms, but you'll get used to it! (:
Food and Dining
The food is great, just make sure not to eat the same thing every day. I eat pizza every day (their pizza is amazing!) and I've reaped the benefits...
What to do for fun
There's not really much to do here for fun. Join clubs but not too many clubs, you want to stay on top of your academics.When there is a party, take up on that because there's really not much to do here... :\ But don't party too much...
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Miller Hall is far away from the rest of the campus! It's not that bad really though. It's only a 6-8 minute walk from campus.
Campus Safety
We have Night Watch especially for the residents in Miller Hall.

I rate Tiffin University on a scale of 1-10 a 10. I am a single mother, and I am employed full time, and Tiffin has made my dreams of attending college a reality. Tiffin is the best college for working individuals, individuals that do not have free time to spare and single parents.

Academic Rigor
The classes are easy and rewarding. The Instructors are very helpful and you will assist you in every way possible.

tiffin is a medium sized school in an average sized town. the teachers are all really nice and are always willing to help. i am getting a great education and it is a great school.
Tips for prospective students
if you are planning on enrolling in tiffin university, but are not positive, schedule a visit. the campus is small and the town itself is easy to navigate. also, there are a lot of clubs to get involved with and the people on campus are very nice. don't be afraid to ask any questions you may have.
Academic Rigor
some of the classes are challenging, but the teachers are willing to work with you. i am in the honors program so some of my classes are challenging, but they are not too bad. there is also a lot of flexibility for the scheduling of the classes.
Dorm Life
i live in one of the smallest dorms so there is not a lot of people, but i still enjoy living in the dorm. the other people in my dorm are very nice and friendly. i often stop and talk with my hr (head resident) and ra (resident assistant) about what classes to take, or how their day is going. they are very nice and friendly.
Food and Dining
the cafeteria is not always the best. they always have pizza and usually a burger, but that gets old sometimes. some of the other food they make is really good, but often my friends and i go out to eat. unfortunately, there is only one place on campus to use your meal plan. you have to be willing to try some of their foods if you get tired of pizza and burgers, but all in all, it is not too horrible.
What to do for fun
for fun, they have a lot of events going on around campus. they do movies or other events. there are two ping pong tables and two pool tables. there is a bowling alley near campus and they have free glow bowling once a month. the movie theater is not too far and they have two discount days. other than that, i go to findlay, which is about 30 minutes away. they have a mall and other stuff to do there.
Great for these types of students
tiffin university is great for students who wish to pursue criminal justice or business careers. they have an amazing forensic program and business program.
Clubs and Activities
there are many different clubs around campus and it is easy to start clubs too. this year, an airsoft club was created. the criminal justice club is a great way to get internships and meet new people. they often bring in speakers.
Campus Safety
there is a group of people called night watch that will walk you to your classes or dorms at night and they patrol the campus throughout the night to keep the campus secure.

On a scale 1-10 this school is a 9, this is a great school for Criminal Justice majors. Its a quiet school with very few distractions so its easy to stay on a good track. The teachers are easy to talk to and the staff is amazing and is always there when you need them.
Tips for prospective students
If you are a criminal justice major, this college is great for you. this school as good connections that can get you a good job quick after graduation. Also, the internship opportunities are great. They help build connections and one may even hold a permanent job wherever one interned.
Academic Rigor
Classes here are challenging. Teachers are always helpful during their office hours. Schedules for classes are always easy to manage no matter how you organize it. Classroom buildings are pretty close to the dorms, apartments and houses so its easy to get to classes on time.
Dorm Life
The dorms are awesome here in tiffin. They are all co-ed dorms. Every dorm is like its own individual family. Every one is open and fun people to be around. There are some house the school has bought so student can have housemates. For the upper class students, They live in beautiful apartment style dorms. they have full kitchens multiple bathrooms and single rooms.
Food and Dining
The food in Tiffin is amazing. They always mix up cultures to give a different taste everyday. They have a variety of choices to eat. Healthy choices are available to and they are also vegetarian friendly.

Tiffin is great! It has plenty of activities, the teachers there are great; I never though college could give me that one on one experience. Lastly, I cannot say how awesome the Heminger center is 4 basketball courts, an indoor track field, and a inside turf field.
Academic Rigor
Teachers give plenty of work and I'm actually learning more than I thought. My brain is always thinking, it's amazing thinking of all the opportunity's that will be available to me after I graduate.
Dorm Life
I kind of feel like I live in a hotel room. With Tiffin expanding the school needs more dorms for us, but besides the size quality they are nice.
Food and Dining
The food for the most part is nice. It's like everything is homecooked and that is good after not being home for months on in. It would be nice though if the students could vote on what should be served the next day more.
What to do for fun
Play rugby, workout, hang with friends, study, sleep, and play video games!

Am learning a lot
When I go to ever class I learn a lot. The instructors make sure they teach you as much in the time provided. I learn a lot inside of class and outside of class. The class sizes are small compared to big university classes, so you have more interactions with the instructor. There are a lot of hands on activities that help you learn a lot more. The instructors are here for you to learn all they teach and if you don't get it then they are here to give you extra help.
Am enjoying being here
Its a small school, so you see the same people a lot. The events that Tiffin University have are very fun and interactive. Every week they have a movie night where you can go enjoy a movie with all of your friends. Everybody is friendly and makes you feel at home. The clubs at Tiffin University help you enjoy this school a lot more. I stay busy so I don't get bored and that's all you gotta do. Just get involved. The club scene isn't the best out here but it wont hurt driving twenty minutes to Findlay to go dancing. College night on Thursday is my weekly scene in Findlay.
Bang for the buck
Its a private school so it expensive. If your major is criminal justice then this is the best university to attend. Tiffin also tries to find great athletes to offer them scholarships that they can't resist. If your an athlete that is trying to get a majority of there college education paid for then Tiffin University is the best school to come to. Make sure you score over a eighteen on your ACT though. That will make you eligible for a scholarship. Overall its pretty pricey.
Tips for prospective students
First of all make sure you find out what you want your major to be. That helps you out in the long run. Second, make sure your grades are good and standing above a 2.8. That helps you out a lot when it comes to choosing colleges. Third, If you want to major in Criminal Justice, come to Tiffin University.
Great for these types of students
Students who are athletes. Students who want to major in Corrections, Forensic Psychology, Forensic Science, Homeland Security/Terrorism, Government and National Security, and Law Enforcement.

Am learning a lot
All of the professors I have encountered at Tiffin have worked in the fields that they teach in. I love the fact that I learn from their experiences and not just the text book (Some of the professors even wrote the textbooks they teach out of).
Am enjoying being here
There is always something going on at Tiffin. It's a small place, so the environment is ideal for someone who loves a family atmosphere. You meet so many different people here. It's great! I also have learned alot from older students. The atmomsphere at Tiffin allows everyone to be friendly and make connections that prove to be very valuable both in your stay at Tiffin and when you leave.
Bang for the buck
You get so many free offers and discounts. I recently won a new 22' Flat screen Vizio television from entering into a contest sponsored by the financial aid and retention offices. Every week there are awesome events for all students, and of course most of them are free. The education and experience are good too. (I just really like the free stuff too though!)
Tips for prospective students
I would advise all students to jump in and have fun. College is about making connections. Once you find something you're interested in, jump in and enjoy yourself. When people see you enjoy something they are more likely to help you succeed!
Also, make sure you bring some ramen noodles!
Great for these types of students
Tiffin is great for all types of students. If you're studious, there are study labs all over campus. If you like involvement, there are tons of clubs and organizations. If you are athletic, there are varsity, junior varsity, and club sports available. If you like music, there are musiic groups that tour regularlty. If you're religious, there are religious groups on campus and churches all around the city of Tiffin. If you like scholarships, they have them! I've met so many people from so many backgrounds at Tiffin, and we're all a family!
