March and April are heavy printing months due to the number of programs at the end of the term. We appreciate your patience and partnership as we navigate these challenging times. Questions may be directed to lori.poehler@wartburg.edu.


Stationery order process changing

The Print Center is in the process of changing vendors for business cards and some stationery items. Printorders.com will no longer work. Until a new vendor is in place, please use PrintShop Pro under the “business cards” category as you’d order any other printing project. Put your changes in the notes section and make sure you fill in the quantity (250, 500, or 1,000) in the “No. of Sets” section. Questions may be directed to lori.poehler@wartburg.edu.

Shorten the Walk event

Students will walk to the river, fill 5-gallon jerry cans with water, and carry them back to campus. These students want to gain a better sense of what so many communities in east Africa are still experiencing on a daily basis. They hope their efforts on World Water Day will help raise more awareness and more funds for water, to end this legacy of burden. Your contributions will be crucial in helping the students create lasting change for communities still waiting for safe water. Building wells changes lives!
