The Tiffin University Counseling staff is walking for mental health every Thursday at noon in the Heminger Center in an effort to highlight the importance and recognition of mental health disorders.
The issue of mental health has become more prevalent in recent years, with the National Institute of Mental Health reporting that nearly 31 percent of U.S. adults have or will experience some instance of anxiety disorder in their lifetime. The NIMH has also reported that in 2017, nearly 17.3 million U.S. adults suffered at least one major depressive episode, with higher instances in females than males. It was also noted on the NIMH website that in that same year, the highest instance of depressive episodes happened in the 18 – 25 age group, largely representative of young adults and college students.
The Tiffin University Wellness and Counseling Center offices are located in Friedley Hall. Students can visit the center between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. To make an appointment, call 419-448-3578 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The center offers walk-ins on Wednesdays with no appointments necessary.

Zeta Pi Beta holds multiple events to benefit cancer research, with Jello Wrestling among the most successful, dating back to 2013. This event is new and improved this year due to a partnership with Tiffin University Wrestling teams to make the event bigger and better than ever. Tiffin University Dean Herdlick will be the referee, per tradition, in coordination with the wrestling coaches.
St. Judes has been the chosen philanthropy by Zeta Pi Beta since its establishment, along with Love Your Melon, which is another cancer research foundation.
