I ended up in Tiffin as a result of attending Heidelberg University. Since I've moved here, I've been welcomed by many of the communities within Tiffin and have had many opportunities to volunteer, work and adventure within town. Over the past few years that I've been in town I've seen many advancements including the additions of Chipotle, BW3, Washington Street Outfitters, a brewery, the amphitheater and they're currently in construction for a new splash pad downtown!

This is a wonderful place to raise a family and an even better place to attend school. With two colleges in the same town, there's a very young community and high diversity among students.

Tiffin is a small community that is growing. I have lived here my whole life and so much is changing for the better. The town is getting more local business which is great for the community. The downtown has the best coffee shop and cute boutiques. There is so much more coming as well, new restaurants and shops! It is great seeing the town you grow up in expand so much.
I absolutely love Tiffin! The community is so welcoming. I love all the local events that the city and community put on. I would love to see more job opportunities available for students that have college degrees.
