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.

Also, a reminder that billing statements from the Business Office are sent out on a monthly basis on CashNet.

If you’re interested in a monthly payment plan, please contact the Business Office. Contact the Financial Aid Office if you would like to discuss loan options.
