在TU的生活 / 学生的成功 & 第一年的经验

The 学生成功办公室 and 第一年的经验 (FYE) assists incoming students with their transition to Tiffin University through programs, 服务, and resources designed to prepare and support them socially, 个人和学术上. Our goal is to coordinate first-year programming that significantly improves the college experience, 提高学生满意度, and encourages engagement early in the collegiate career.

新生迎新 is a one-day orientation session for students and their families to begin the transition to Tiffin University. Students will meet with a financial aid advisor, 注册课程, meet other incoming students and upper-class leaders, and learn about career development opportunities and other student support 服务 available at TU.


受欢迎的周末 is a two-day event full of exciting activities for new students to help kick-off their college experience. It serves as an introduction to virtually everything TU has to offer. 受欢迎的周末 provides all new students a chance to make connections with faculty, staff and other students while being led by upper-class 同伴导师.

Tiffin University embodies a student-centered, friendly, engaging campus culture. Convocation is a ceremony recognizing the significance of the beginning of the new academic journey with our new 龙家人. Students are to engage in the learning opportunities that lay before them.


All new students are assigned a 学生的成功 Advisor (SSA) who provides focused attention on the success of students by providing quality and personalized academic planning and mentoring throughout their first year. The SSA serves as a main point of contact for all questions, 担忧, and connections while promoting student motivation and holistic campus engagement. All new students meet with their SSA during their first year on campus to explore their academic and personal goals.


The Dragon Education core is a required course sequence in the general education curriculum. DEC100/DEC250 aims to help each new student successfully transition to Tiffin University by building social connections, encouraging professionalism and improving academic preparedness. The course focuses on exploring and investigating career opportunities.


The Peer Mentor is an upper-class student who works with an instructor to co-facilitate the DEC100/DEC250 Engage course each semester. A peer mentor is an upper-class role model whose goal is to ease the transition to college and serve as a helpful resource to all things Tiffin University.


龙家人 provides family and loved ones access to information about key dates and events going on throughout the semester, as well as helpful resources to assist family members of college students through the university acclimation process. 加入我们的 脸谱网群组 to connect with other families and ask questions.
