A recent survey from Backgroundchecks.org indicates that the city of Tiffin is among the Top 100 Safest Cities in Ohio. In a news release, it’s been revealed that Tiffin ranks No. 16 on the list, based on FBI crime statistics and law enforcement employment numbers per 1,000 residents.

As a long-time partner in community affairs with a shared goal of safety for all, Heidelberg is pleased with this news because it means students and all members of the campus community live and work in a safe place.

Over the past few weeks and months, we’ve watched the progress of two very visible construction projects (The HeidelBean! and Sarah Street). Two others inside Saurwein Health & Wellness Center (Exercise Science lab and a new fireplace) are almost finished. The coming weeks and months will bring the start – and in some cases, the completion – of several important and exciting projects that will improve the campus by providing more and better learning, living and engaging spaces.
