Tiffin University to host Amazon Prime series




Tiffin, Ohio — A television production crew with experience working on Emmy award-winning reality shows, such as Survivor and Undercover Boss, will be filming on Tiffin University’s campus and in various Tiffin locations on June 27 through July 1.

Instead of filming drama-packed challenges on a remote tropical island, the crew will focus their cameras on 10 Tiffin University students who will showcase their experience as a Dragon. The 30-minute episode of The College Tour is scheduled to stream on Amazon Prime this fall.

Topics for each episode include TU’s location, Athletics, TiffinArts, internship opportunities, student engagement, academics, the Tiffin Innovation Program (TIP), online programs and Celebrating Cultural Uniqueness.

Alex Boylan, an Emmy-nominated producer who won CBS’s second season of The Amazing Race, is The College Tour’s host and executive producer. He developed the show after seeing his niece’s college decision limited to a handful of schools that she could afford to visit. Seeking to expand options for prospective students and families, Boylan thought, “Higher education needs its own television series.”

“Each episode of The College Tour tells the story of one institution, and the best part about it is we tell that in a very authentic way through the lens of real, current students,” Boylan said. “There’s not a better way to learn about the vibe and the culture of a place than real students and their real stories.”
