Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin University will host a premiere party for the College Tour episode featuring the University on Thursday, September 29 at 6 p.m. in the Marion Center.

The episode will be available on November 9 on IMDb TV, Amazon’s premium free streaming service, and across the College Tour platform, including its mobile app and website. Hosted by Alex Boylan, the College Tour is a powerful series created to empower high school students to virtually travel across America for an inside look at colleges and universities.

The episode will be livestreamed at

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.”

“Our episode offered us an innovative way to help prospective students and families to get an in-depth look at Tiffin University from the comfort of their own homes,” said Dr. Amy Wood, Senior Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Success.
