NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
Stress-Free Zone
S.A.F.E. (Suicide Awareness For Everyone) will host a Stress-Free Zone event Tuesday, April 18, 3-5 p.m., on the campus mall. This opportunity for students to take a break from studying will feature a chance to engage in some animal therapy. Direct questions to S.A.F.E. President Hailey Franzen.
Midnight Breakfast on Tuesday night
President Colson invites students to the Finals Week tradition of Midnight Breakfast in Mensa on Tuesday, April 18, from 11 p.m. to midnight. Enjoy some late-night food and fellowship as faculty and staff serve breakfast treats! 
New option for grab-and-go on GET
Beginning in May Term, the Den will test a new grab-and-go board plan meal on GET: the Snack Pack. The Snack Pack menu choice will allow you to pick five items from a list. The items on this list will be shelf-stable snack items, including several choices that will be easy for a person to stash in their backpack. Food items will be identified as GF (gluten-free), V (vegetarian), DF (dairy-free), and NF (nut-free). As always, it is recommended that you always check the food label for ingredients, as companies may make changes to their retail items.
Wartburg Players meeting
The Wartburg Players’ last member meeting of the academic year will be Wednesday, April 19, 8:30 p.m., in Luther Hall 330. All who want to share their love of theater and the arts with the Wartburg campus and beyond are welcome! The short meeting will include voting for the positions of president, vice president, and secretary. To nominate yourself or someone else, email adeline.angst@wartburg.edu; deadline is April 18. Nominations must include the name of nominee, what role they are being nominated for, and a short description of why they would be a good fit for the selected office.

PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
Student employee wages
Effective June 1, the Wartburg College Student Employment program will require all student employees to deposit their wages directly into their bank account, set up a Student Payroll Deduction Agreement to have wages applied to their tuition account, or arrange a combination of these two options. This change is part of the college’s expense-reduction efforts as well as a way in which we can adapt more sustainable practices. 
UKnight Day participation skyrockets 
Our campus truly UKnighted on March 30, as we raised more than $110,000 and demolished Wartburg’s one-day participation record! Among the 1,416 UKnight Day donors were 138 faculty and staff and 219 students, which represent a 71 percent increase in campus givers from last year. Thank you for all that you do on UKnight Day and every day to make Wartburg the finest in the East or West!
Congrats to Gremmels Fellowship recipient
Taylor Yezek ’12 is this year’s recipient of the Bob Gremmels Graduate Fellowship. Yezek is pursuing a master’s degree in strategic communication at the University of Iowa. The fellowship awards a $9,000 stipend in honor of the remarkable legacy of leadership and service provided to the college by Gremmels, professor emeritus of journalism, and is made possible through the generosity of Harold P. ’58 and Grace A. ’61 Kurtz.
Student employment forms 
Direct deposit forms and Student Payroll Deduction Agreements can be picked up in the Student Employment Office, Luther Hall 212, or found on our website. Completed forms should be submitted to the Student Employment Office by their respective deadlines. Questions regarding this change can be directed to Abbie Raum, student employment coordinator, studentemployment@wartburg.edu or 319-352-8350.
