Traditions

Tiffin University Students

Fight song "Green and Gold"

We are the Tiffin Dragons, and we're out to win.
We have an old tradition, to which we all are kin.
The Green and Gold will battle, 'til victory rings through.
We always stand behind our team from old T. U.

The Fight Song, "Green and Gold," was adopted in 1995, and uses the melody of The Trio from Salutation, a march by R.F. Seitz.

Alma Mater

'Tis the place where I have grown,
Where my heart resides;
Green and Gold, I long for you,
You're my Tiffin Pride.
You're my Tiffin University,
You're my Tiffin Home.
