(Tiffin, OH) Despite a nationwide drop in enrollment, one local university is growing.
Tiffin University is celebrating the school's largest-ever freshman class.
The school announced yesterday that 450 first-year students from 26 states are on campus for the fall semester, with another 70 students from several foreign countries.
University officials say students are attracted by the safety and security of the smaller campus, as well as a low faculty-to-student ratio.
The uptick in enrollment comes despite a slump in college enrollment across the country over the last 6 years.
