Services & Support

Wherever your opportunities take you, you will always have the strength and support of the Heidelberg community behind you.

Career Networking

The average person changes jobs 10-15 times over a career, maybe more for millennials, for whom “job hopping” is considered the new normal. It’s even more important, then, to have great job searching and networking skills. The Owen Center gets students off on the right foot before graduation and can continue to provide assistance for alumni seeking new jobs or those who have job opportunities to share. Contact Mark McKee in the Owen Center (mmckee@heidelberg.edu or 419-448-2194) to learn more.

Student Support

At Heidelberg, our top priority is helping students succeed – from the moment of they enroll to transitioning to college life, academic achievement, career preparation and life beyond Heidelberg. The great news is that as alumni, you can have a positive influence along the way.

Offer a Job or Internship

There’s no substitute for hands-on experience in setting up students for career success, and the best way to do give them that edge is through an internship. In December 2015, Heidelberg received a $261,000 Career Ready Internship Grant from the Great Lakes Higher Education Guarantee Corp. The grant has the potential to create 170 new paid internships over three years, allowing Heidelberg to double the number of for-credit paid internships completed by students and double the number of majors regularly participating in our internship program. In the end, ‘Berg students will be well positioned for future employment, having learned the skills and knowledge needed to be successful, both personally and professionally.

This is a great opportunity for alumni to partner with the university to provide professional training for ‘Berg students. We have begun connecting eligible juniors and seniors with paid internship experiences through the grant. If you would like to provide an internship site or know of a site looking for student interns, contact Mark McKee, the director of career development and placement. You can reach Mark at mmckee@heidelberg.edu or 419-448-2194.       

Offer a HYPE Session

There’s huge hype about Heidelberg’s co-curricular HYPE Career Ready Program, which launched in the Fall of 2016. Six times a year, students will come together to hear a big-name, big-team speaker who will inspire them around six skills paramount to career success (values, work styles, job search skills, communication, collaboration and conflict management). Following the keynote speakers, students will participate in a series interactive workshops around the theme. Sample sessions are writing cover letters, poverty simulator, community service project, learning about personal finance, and basic car care. Some sessions will include trips off campus.

Alumni are welcome to offer ideas for HYPE workshops. If you have an idea, contact Ashley Helmstetter, at ahelmste@heidelberg.edu or 419-448-2231.

Buy ‘Berg Gear

The Heidelberg Bookstore, located on the main level of the Campus Center, is your go-to place for ‘Berg apparel, gifts, graduation items and more. Stop by when you’re on campus and pick up a cool T-shirt or mug, or if it’s more convenient, you can shop and place your order online. We accept cash, credit or check. Online orders are generally processed in 24 hours. The bookstore is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday with extended hours for many special events throughout the year.

'Berg License Plates

Ride with pride with your Heidelberg license plate. Under the terms of a partnership between Ohio’s colleges and universities and the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, a special Heidelberg University license plate is available for passenger cars, non-commercial vehicles or motor homes. The Heidelberg “H” is displayed on the left side of this five-character special plate. Cost is an additional $35 on top of a county’s license fee, with $25 of that going to Heidelberg’s general scholarship fund and $10 to the Ohio BMV. (You must renew annually). For more information about how to obtain your Heidelberg plates, contact Ashley Helmstetter, at ahelmste@heidelberg.edu or call her at 419-448-2231.

Fun Downloads

The Office of Marketing & Communication Services has a variety of professional-quality photographs to be used as desktop backgrounds or screen savers and are provided in different resolutions and aspect ratios. Additionally, the university’s approved logo is available by request.

Heidelberg is active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, YouTube and LinkedIn. As always, we love hearing from you – no matter what platform you use to stay in touch with us!
