What do you think makes Wartburg stand out from other schools?Wartburg College has a strong sense of community embracing students, faculty, staff, alumni, and Waverly residents. Wartburg is unique in Iowa, the Midwest, and the entire nation in the large number of American minority and international students, coupled with the student body's substantial participation in overseas education and world-wide service. All these factors work together to create a very positive learning experience.

What is currently your favorite thing about Wartburg?The international students' annual culture week; Karen Black's organ performances; Wartburg-Augsburg wrestling matches; the "W"; and "Keep on Learning."

What does "Being Orange" mean to you?
My dad, Walter Fredrick, my five brothers and sisters, my wife, our son, two nieces, one nephew, and the daughter of one cousin all went to Wartburg College. We are working on the next generation. Orange is a family thing!
