TU goes on alert; all’s well

An email was sent to Tiffin University staff, students and faculty Friday about a potential risk from an unstable man in the area.

Tiffin Police Department alerted university authorities of the threat from a relative of the man, according to TU President Paul Marion. The campus community was to call 911 and notify campus safety immediately if the man was seen on campus.

“There was no high risk of the man coming to campus. We discussed on whether to send out an alert and decided it would be on the safe side to notify the campus community.”

Marion said TU was “being overly cautious.”

No incidents were reported.
