From Tiffin University

Our motto, Without Risk There Is No Gain, is more relevant now than ever before. From the students and athletes who have something to prove in the classroom and on the field, to our professors and their connections, we take risks. Our curriculum points to real-world jobs and the community we've built reflects the diverse world of work. TU is a crossroads: we represent who you are and who you will become. And in time, every student comes to realize that without risk, there is no gain.

Tiffin University Reviews

Tiffin is a great place, but I wish they would increase their staff and create harder curriculum. I often look for a challenge—a stressor if you’d like to say. Tiffin seems to hire professors who are very lenient when it comes to grading and other assignments. I don’t really get the struggle I’m wanting, but hey! Maybe it’s not the professors or the curriculum; maybe I’m just a really great student. ;)

Although I am only just finishing my first year at Tiffin University, it was definately an enjoyable one. Coming from two states over, this is the perfect place to learn to start living on your own, as the campus is easy to navigate, safe, and diverse. While I have heard there are some less than perfect profs on campus, mine have been nothing but kind and extremely intelligent. I am a part of TUs choirs, and my experience there has also been positive, however on the athletics front, although I do not care for sports, I have heard from friends who are involved that they're not the best, namely the Equestrian Team. The food also gets tiring and disappointing, but they have their days, i.e. Taco Tueaday. Overall, my first year on campus has been successful, and I would recommend this uni to my friends.
Tiffin was the first university I went to, you become close to the majority of the people you will be graduating with since it is such a small school. The problems I had were many of the buildings are old and have limited to no A/C and I had professors that did not like if you missed the class due to sports or other extracurricular activities. You do get free printing in the majority of the buildings which was nice and all of the dorms had a community washer and dryer. My second year at Tiffin though when they were placing people in the dorms, it was a first come first serve situation until they switched their coordinator, which then became whomever was there friend got the best spots. Overall the school is decent, if you can handle a small town, this may be the school for you, it can be very personable, but just like every other place it has its on problem with school politics.
