Egg Nog Pong Tournament
KWAR will host its second annual Egg Nog Pong Tournament on Tuesday, Dec. 6, starting at 7 p.m. in Grossmann basement. The cost is $2 per team to get your name included in the bracket. The winner gets a trophy and will be featured on KWAR social media. If you would like to enter, please email the names of your team members (two per team) to abby.singleton@wartburg.edu.

Attention student employees
Did you know that your timecard and monthly paystubs are now available online? Simply login into Info Center with your Wartburg credentials and:
  • Select “Pay Stub” under the Application tab to view your paystub.
  • Select “KnightTime Timecard” under the Employment tab to review your work hours.
Students are strongly encouraged to sign up for direct deposit or the student payroll deduction agreement. Both of these options eliminate the possibility of lost or stale-dated paychecks as well as having to remember to pick up paper paychecks from the Business Office each month. The deadline for electing each of these options is the first business day of the month in which you would like to have the change effective on your paycheck (i.e. Dec. 1 deadline for the Dec. 15 payroll).

Students who would like to have their Dec. 15 paycheck mailed to their home address may sign up in the Business Office, Luther Hall 212.

Beginning Monday, Nov. 28, the Campus Security Office will be accepting bicycles for winter storage, free of charge.
