Student Life

You can try, but you won’t be able to stop yourself from getting involved on campus. Clubs, organizations, athletics, music, honor societies, and Greek life all have a strong presence at Heidelberg. You can be in the band, or just enjoy their music. You can be on the soccer team, or love cheering them on. You could be president of the Student Senate, or eat the food at their bonfire. No matter what you do, you’ll have fun.


Heidelberg is a member of the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC), one of the oldest athletic conferences in the nation. Our 18 varsity teams compete in NCAA Division III. Athletes have achieved success at the conference, regional, and national levels.

German Connection

Heidelberg was established in 1850 by the German Reformed Church (now United Church of Christ). Heidelberg's mascot, the Student Prince, is named after a German operetta of the same name and our school colors are from Germany’s flag used to represent the German and Dutch Reformed Church. Today, the University retains these connections through a unique study abroad program with its namesake city – Heidelberg, Germany.
