The Juice (Student) - Sept. 28

Sir Victor appearances, S.A.L.S.A. meeting

Sept. 28, 2020

Changes to Sir Victor appearance policy

Is your organization hosting a movie night? An event on the campus mall? Something else? Do you want the greatest mascot in Wartburg's history to attend?


Due to fewer events this year, the Sir Victor Program is changing our policy for paid events. To be more engaged with the campus this year, we are changing our policy for student organizations/Wartburg departments:

Any student organization or Wartburg department may schedule Sir Victor for an unpaid event.
Unpaid appearances by Sir Victor will be 30 minutes or less.
Sir Victor reserves the right to not attend due to availability/scheduling issues.
Appearance requests that last longer than 30 minutes will be charged for the appropriate rate.

Any questions about these policy changes can be directed to alex.buchheim@wartburg.edu. For more information about Sir Victor, or to request an appearance, click here.

All are invited – students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and friends – to join the conversation. This program is virtual and facilitated through Wartburg College in partnership with UNI, Hawkeye Community College, Waterloo Community Schools, YWCA, EMBRACE and many other participating organizations.

Help needed for meal deliveries

Students, faculty and staff – your help is needed to deliver meals to students who are quarantining and isolating – these are NO-CONTACT deliveries. Students are especially needed for lunch deliveries on Saturday and Sunday. Sign up using this link.

Dinner shifts on “on call only,” meaning you should call Campus Security at 319-352-8372 to see if you are needed prior to showing up. If we have enough volunteers, meal deliver is done within 15-20 minutes. Contact Kristin Tieg Torres for details.


Order your Outfly shirts online

Choose from terra cotta and light green, with short-sleeve ($8) and long-sleeve ($13) shirts available in each color. A limited quantity in each size is available, so order your favorite before the size is sold out! There's even a spot to guess when Outfly will be at the end of the order form. Questions? Contact Student Body Vice President Emma Williams. (No, do NOT ask her when Outfly will be...)
