Fill out FAFSA now for 2024-25

Keep sending in professional highlights

A reminder to all faculty and staff: Please send Marketing & Communication any professional accomplishments by you or your students! We want to lift those successes up to the Wartburg community, and they’re also useful for recruitment materials. Submit your news to the Juice or contact your account executive directly.

Internship learning contracts due Jan. 16

Students completing a credit-bearing internship for Winter Term 2024 must have their learning contracts completed and returned to Jo Dorrance no later than 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 16.

Employee assistance program can help with stress

You can schedule up to 12 visits per year for free.
