Ash tree treatment — Wartburg has received information about a local company that can treat ash trees to kill emerald ash borers with an inoculation that lasts three years. We will be treating select trees on campus to save the trees. Holes are drilled into the tree, and the insecticide is drawn into the tree as it transfers moisture from the soil. The insecticide is not harmful to bees. In addition, bees do not feed on ash trees when they flower. 

Keep your mailbox for the summer — If you plan to stay in Waverly over the summer and would like to keep your Wartburg mailbox open, please visit the Mail Center and sign up. Otherwise, your mail will get forwarded to your home.  

Don’t forget your bicycle —
 Bicycles may not be left on campus over the summer. Take them with you when you move out of your residence hall. Bicycles left on campus after commencement (May 22) will be considered abandoned and removed from campus.

Change in office hours — The Business and Financial Aid offices will not open until 9:45 a.m. Friday, May 20. Please plan accordingly.
