Changes in how to print on campus

Due to recent concerns on campus, and for security purposes, the ability to type in your Wartburg ID number to print a print job has been revoked. The recommended way to print is to simply swipe your Wartburg ID into the card swipe on the printer. You may also type in your Wartburg login (ex: firstname.lastname) followed by your password into the login screen on the printer. Please direct questions or concerns to Techline@wartburg.edu or call 319-352-8767.


Print Center experiencing supply chain issues

Product supply chain shortages are impacting the availability of certain papers and envelopes for the Wartburg Print Center. Our staff is pursuing other vendor options when possible, but that can take extra time. To ensure availability of product, please plan ahead as much as possible for any printing projects. 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

Wartburg College students will experience what it's like to walk in another person's shoes on World Water Day, March 22. 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!
Donations can be made through Thrivent. If you choose to donate through Thrivent, Water to Thrive would love to know about it, so be sure and send us an email at team@watertothrive.org.

Professional development workshop for faculty and staff

Laura I. Rendón, professor emerita at University of Texas-San Antonio, will offer a professional development workshop for all faculty and staff on March 22, 11:15 a.m.-12:45 p.m. Her presentation, "Fostering Student Success: Working With Validation, Student Assets & Sentipensante Pedagogy," will be offered on Zoom. Rendón will address themes related to fostering student success especially for low-income, first-generation students. Creating a culture of success requires attention to: 1) a relationship-centered approach centering the importance of validating students, 2) the need to leverage student assets and 3) the importance of working with contemplative, deep learning experiences such as what Rendón calls Sentipensante (Sensing/Thinking) Pedagogy. Rendón will feature videos of faculty who foster deep learning employing illuminative knowledge tools (i.e., socially-driven art and photography, guided imagery, audio narratives, music and periods of reflection).



Weekday Chapel

Weekday Chapel services are from 10:15 to 10:35 a.m. each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in Wartburg Chapel. Chapel time is a brief opportunity to gather with students, staff, and faculty to reflect on God and faith. Mondays will feature faculty and staff faith stories and blessings, Wednesdays will be a morning prayer service, and Fridays will have Senior Chapels. Interfaith chapels will be held during the last week each month.

Upcoming speakers:


Monday, March 21: Pastoral Intern Rebecca Baird, Faith and Faith
Wednesday, March 23: Wednesday Lent Worship - Lent Through the Senses
Friday, Feb. 25: Brady Fox, Senior Chapel


Over the next five weeks Wednesday Chapel services will be focused on the season of Lent. Lent is the 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter. On Wednesdays, we will have a Lent worship service with the theme "The Senses of Lent." This theme will focus on the five senses — touch, sound, smell, sight, and taste. Each week we will examine scripture through one of these senses.
