L.O.V.E. Spreads the Warmth and Much More L.O.V.E, Learning to Overcome through Victim Empowerment, is a new student organization at TU that is dedicated to raising awareness on the issues of domestic/ dating violence & sexual assaults specifically on college campuses, as well as advocating for the rights of those impacted by such incidents. “The college student population is often overlooked in relation to domestic and dating violence,” said Brianne Hurd, adviser and campus victim’s rights advocate at TU. “Many times, students do not think of younger people being victims of domestic violence.” The organization currently boasts 18 to 20 members who are doing all they can to shed light on the effects of the issue on campuses everywhere. Working closely with Seneca County's Director of Victim's Assistance Libra Martin, students involved in L.O.V.E. have the opportunity to train in areas such as crisis intervention, teen dating violence, victim-offender mediation, and advocate confidentiality. "I believe that victims on a college campus tend to feel as if they have nowhere to go and that they have no options, so having an organization like this on a college campus is extremely beneficial for all," said Kayla McClintock, L.O.V.E. President and a junior majoring in forensic psychology. "People can learn how to work with victims, and victims can learn about all of the resources and options available to them." One of the organization’s most recent efforts was a ‘one-for-one’ fundraiser entitled ‘Blankets Made with L.O.V.E.’ The group took orders for hand-made fleece tie blankets. For each blanket that was purchased, one blanket was donated to one of two local women’s and children’s shelter and the local victim’s assistance office. L.O.V.E. received 136 blanket orders raising $1, 475.00. In line with the number that was ordered forty-five blankets each will be donated to Seneca County Victims Assistance, Open Arms, and Hope House. One blanket will be donated to TU’s Seneca House and will be made according to L.O.V.E.’s theme. On January 29th, the organization will be hosting Ms. Johanna Orozco, a survivor of many violent and brutal attacks by her then boyfriend, from the Cleveland area. She will participate in a round-table Q&A session with the students of L.O.V.E. and then speak to the student body. Also, in the spring, the group will join forces with the community to host a city-wide event to raise awareness and celebrate survival and the lives of victims of domestic/ dating violence.

Local Students Compete in Tiffin University Business Plan Contest

Borich said, "This was such a great experience for everyone involved. We have such great students here at Tiffin University's School of Business, and to pair them with exceptional local high school students was such as innovative idea! It was a pleasure to watch them all grow together through the creation of their business plans. I am extremely fortunate to have been a part of this program from its inception!"

By Dr. Perry Haan Local high school and college students competed in the Tiffin University Business Plan Contest on December 5. The two person teams consisted of a local high school student and a Tiffin University student.

Tiffin University Professor of Marketing and Entrepreneurship Dr. Perry Haan taught the college Entrepreneurship class in conjunction with the Boot Camp. “This was one of most satisfying experiences in all my years in academe. This was an opportunity for students to pull together and apply what they have learned in their classes to a business they chose for themselves” according to Haan.

The contest was the culmination of three Entrepreneurship Boot Camp meetings during the fall on the Tiffin University campus. In addition to creating the business plans each boot camp meeting featured speakers discussing a variety of issues related to entrepreneurship. Haley Thomas from Ballreich’s Potato Chips and Bill Auxter of the Small Business Development Center in Fremont were the December speakers.

Other high school students who presented business plans were Mohawk’s McKensie Binau, Hannah Harrison, Joanie Lininger, and Shantel Weaver. Tiffin Columbian’s Jeffrey Crawford and Tyler Mohr from Wynford High School also participated. The business plan presentations were also attended by high school principals Matt Wolph from North Central Academy, Mohawk’s Brett Graham, and Tiffin Columbian’s Mark Verroco. Henry Stobbs, Economics teacher at Mohawk also attended the event.

The Boot Camp and contest were the idea of Tiffin University Business School Dean Dr. Lillian Schumacher who presented the concept to area high school administrators last spring. “We were not sure how this would all turn out but I could not be happier and thrilled with the effort and creativity of the TU and high school students that participated. We challenged them in a variety of ways through this experience and they took it like champs! I hope some of them choose to actually start the businesses they came up with" Schumacher stated.

Jodie Reinbolt and Leanne Lucius from event sponsors the Tiffin Charitable Foundation and Marathon Petroleum Corporation sat in on the presentations. Other sponsors were Dr. Dan Mays and Dr. Laura Mays, Kneuven CPA, Huntington Insurance Group, Doepker Group, Ohio Logistics, TPC, and McDonald’s. Dan Mays has owned a number of different businesses and Laura Mays is Professor Emeritus at Tiffin University.

The first place team was Julie Peck from Mohawk High School and Maria Hoepf from Tiffin University. Their plan was for opening a build your own yogurt shop called Sprinkles Fro Yo. Hoepf is a Tiffin native. Mohawk’s Katelyn Seifert and Tiffin University’s Pai Liu placed second. Third went to Renee Marshall from North Central Academy and Tiffin University’s Jordan Stock.

Mays and Mays, retired entrepreneur Tony Haan and Schumacher were judges for the business plan competition. Schumacher commented on the success of the program and hopes to continue it to the future. "The inaugural entrepreneurial boot camp was a huge success thanks to the dedication and hard work of both Dr. Perry Haan and Megan Borich who spearheaded and executed the entire class experience.

The high school students participating in the competition were also earning college credit. Megan Borich, Ohio Mutual Insurance Group Fellow at Tiffin University taught the online high school class as part of the Boot Camp experience. 2

WINTER WEATHER POLICY Tiffin Campus If a Level 3 snow emergency is officially declared for Seneca County by the Sheriff, classes on the Tiffin campus will be cancelled and University offices will be closed. Unless otherwise communicated by the President or the President’s designee, classes will be held and University offices will be open if a snow emergency is at Level 1 or Level 2. If a snow emergency at Level 3 has been officially declared for Seneca County, University employees are not expected to travel to the Tiffin campus. Unless otherwise communicated by the President or the President’s designee, faculty members are expected to travel to the Tiffin campus to teach their classes and staff members are expected to travel to the Tiffin campus to report for work if a snow emergency for Seneca County is at Level 1 or 2. If a Seneca County snow emergency is at Level 1 or 2 and an employee chooses not report for work, the employee must inform his or her supervisor and staff members must take annual leave. An exception to this policy will be made for any employee who lives in a county other than Seneca County that officially has a Level 3 snow emergency when Seneca County’s snow emergency is at Level 1 or 2. In this case, the employee is not expected to travel to the Tiffin campus, but must inform his or her supervisor. If a Level 3 snow emergency is in effect in Seneca County or the county where the employee lives and then is changed to Level 1 or 2 during the time when classes are scheduled and/or when University offices are normally open, classes will be held and offices will be open once the snow emergency has been changed to Level 1 or Level 2, unless otherwise communicated by the President or the President’s designee. If classes have been cancelled and University offices have been closed, certain staff members may be designated by the President or the President’s designee as “essential personnel” and may be asked to report for work. Any hourly staff member who is asked to work when the campus has been closed will be paid at a rate of time and one-half per hour. Any exempt staff member who is asked to work when the campus is closed will be given compensatory time off at a later date. Locations Other Than the Tiffin Campus For Tiffin University classes that are taught at locations other than the Tiffin campus, instructors and other University employees should follow the same procedure as described above. The director of each academic center will serve as the President’s designee to determine and communicate any exceptions when there is a snow emergency of Level 1 or 2 for the county where the academic center is located. 19
