Jan 17, 2020
This year, Heidelberg is bringing renewed and bigger meaning to its observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, with the campus community participating in learning/development and service activities throughout the day.
In the larger Tiffin-Seneca County community, Heidelberg’s presence will be seen and felt throughout the day, especially at the Community Celebration: The Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday night. It’s open to everyone.
Heidelberg saluted the service and sacrifices of all veterans, past and present, during the annual Veterans Day ceremony this morning. The ceremony was organized by Student Senate.
The ceremony began with the singing of the National Anthem by junior music major David Carey. Those in attendance observed a moment of silence for alumnus Jim Roberts, ’65, former sheriff, city councilman and United Veterans Council representative, who died in September. Jim had been a mainstay at past Veterans Day ceremonies for years, leading the UVC color guard.
Sisters in Shelter chooses student’s design for new logo
Oct 31, 2019
Last April, when Kjirsten Corson became the new director of Sisters in Shelter, a local safe house for victims of human trafficking and domestic violence, she knew she wanted to infuse some fresh ideas into the organization. One of them was creating a new logo. Kjirsten turned to Heidelberg with a cool idea to have students enter a contest to design the new graphic identity for Sisters in Shelter.
Students in the Explorations of Psychology class traveled to Wooster over Fall Break for a service learning experience and to take a closer look at the problem of homelessness in the community. They described the experience as “eye-opening” and “amazing.”
The campuses of Heidelberg and Tiffin University are a virtual melting pot, hosting a combined 250 international students this academic year. Thursday night, the students – along with administrators and staff from both universities and community representatives – gathered in downtown Tiffin for the “Tiffin Welcomes the World” event.
Presidents Rob Huntington and Lillian Schumacher were among those on hand to meet the international students.
