The Juice (Faculty/Staff) - 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.
