Student & Community Welcome Center Campaign

It's all about putting the "welcome" in Welcome Center. In the hyper-competitive world of college recruitment, we need to make a great first impression and an instant, lasting connection with prospective students (and their families) who are considering Heidelberg. Our Student & Community Welcome Center will set the tone for an awesome campus visit.

The estimated cost to construct the Student & Community Welcome Center is $3.85 million (projected completion: 2019). The new campus “front door” will serve two purposes: to lift up our facilities to the level of our competitors as we recruit and enroll future Student Princes, and to serve as a conduit between Tiffin and Heidelberg as we strengthen our vibrant city-campus connection. The center will also become home for the Town-Gown Bookstore, to pick up ‘Berg apparel, textbooks and collegiate merchandise.

Why This Campaign Matters

“This is where and when it all begins. We want our families to come onto our campus and into the Welcome Center and feel like Heidelberg is where they belong. The center will give us the tools to enhance their experience and make their visit memorable. We want them to put Heidelberg on the top of their list.”
