TU Joins Social Movement to Support the People Involved in Crisis in Venezuela According to CNN World, “It's been a month since violent clashes between opposition demonstrators and government forces in Venezuela first grabbed global attention. Protests rage on, and demonstrators show no sign of backing down.” Tiffin University is joining the social movement to support the people of Venezuela. There are a small number of students and employees at Tiffin University as well as other Tiffin community members from Venezuela, so this crisis touches our small community despite it being thousands of miles away.

For more information, please search #sosvenezuela and #prayforvenezuela via Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.

The schedule: Wednesday, April 16 Legacy Courtyard or Gillmor in case of rain. 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM Creating signs and posters, and face-painting 11:30 AM Group Photo

To show our support, the office of International Student Advising, is coordinating the creation of signs and posters, as well as face-painting to prepare for a group photo. This photo will then be used to join in the social media campaign for Venezuela.

TU to Celebrate Holi Festival of Colors Tiffin University’s Multicultural Services and International Admissions and Advising Offices, along with the International Cultural Center, will celebrate Holi, a Festival of Colors, on Thursday, April 24 at 7:00 p.m. in the Legacy Courtyard. The festival has many purposes. First and foremost, it celebrates the beginning of spring. Overall, this is one of the most spirited and beloved festivals of the Hindu calendar. “Holi is an opportunity to bring everyone from all religions, ethnicities and backgrounds together to celebrate and have fun,” says Jamie Marinis, Director of Multicultural Services at Tiffin University. Holi is an ancient Indian celebration that marks the end of the winter gloom and rejoices in the bloom of the new spring season. Color throwing is part of a Hindu tradition of throwing worries to the wind and embracing the new season through spiritual and social harmony. The Holi Festival of Colors is free and open to all members of the campus and Tiffin community. Everyone in attendance will receive free color, food and fun.

About SAAC The SAAC includes two representatives from each intercollegiate sport team, hand selected by their coaches as leaders both on and off the field. Their primary responsibilities are to: Promote communication between athletics administration and the student-athlete, disseminate information, provide feedback and insight into athletic department issues, generate a student-athlete voice regarding campus athletics department formulation of policies, build a sense of community within the athletics program involving all athletic teams, solicit student-athlete responses to proposed conference and NCAA legislation, organize community service efforts, create a vehicle for student-athlete representation on campus-wide committees, and promote a positive student-athlete image on campus.

According to Marinis, there are currently 195 international students attending Tiffin University representing 29 countries. Currently, nine students on-campus are from India, where Holi originated. Other countries represented include: Argentina, Australia, the Bahamas, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Central African Republic, China, France, Germany, Jordan, Kosovo, Latvia, Libya, Mexico, Nigeria, Romania, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Trinidad & Tobago, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and Venezuela.

The Tiffin University SAAC fundraises each year for the Make A Wish Foundation.

At the Platinum Chef competition, our team of Student Dragon Culinarians placed a very respectful Third Place. The team had a ball and everyone commented on how great their team work was, how awesome the food was and how impressive they were! Third place is the highest place Tiffin has ever finished.

Have you considered Grad School? THINK ABOUT IT!

Master of Education (MED)

Why not take some time to consider continuing your education this spring or summer with one of Tiffin University’s graduate programs. Earning a graduate degree will not only help you reach professional goals, but many careers are now requiring an advanced degree. Graduate students are often on the cutting edge of their industries, becoming pioneers in their fields. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average worker with a master's degree will net an additional $10,000 or more per year than those with only a bachelor's degree. Working only twenty years after earning your master’s degree can bring in additional income of $200,000. The cost of graduate school tuition is obviously well worth the expense. We would love to have an opportunity to discuss our graduate program with you in detail. I also encourage you to complete the online application at http://www.tiffin.edu/apply/ grad/. The application will secure a seat for you in the program and put you on the road to success.

Tiffin Leadership Park The Leadership Seneca County class of 2014 presented their community service project to Tiffin City Council on Monday, February 3, 2014 and was approved by a unanimous 6-0 vote. Leadership Park will be located on the east side of the river, along the water front in an existing grassy area. This area will be developed with the intention for it to be used for Tiffin community events including events for the creative arts and community engagement events. The development of Leadership Park will give a warm welcome coming into the downtown area with beauty and art leading into an inviting historic area that individuals from all over the Country will pass in route to places like Heidelberg University, The Civil War Museum, or the events at the YMCA and Hedges Boyer park. Market Street is the gateway to the downtown area, and it is the hope of Leadership Seneca County Class of 2014 to kick off to the beautification and economic revitalization of our downtown. For more information please visit www.facebook.com/ LeadershipParkTiffin or email LeadershipParkTiffin@gmail.com The mission of Leadership Seneca County is "educating and inspiring individuals to be dynamic leaders and contributors in the workplace and the community".
