What do you enjoy doing? I enjoy running, reading and catching up with other Wartburgers.

What do you think makes Wartburg stand out from other schools? Although there are many fine higher education institutions in the world, they are all so unique. Which is perfect, because there is not one right answer for everyone as to where to attend college. Wartburg was the right choice for me. It stood out for its caring faculty, staff, and students; for its liberal arts focus; and for all the reasons that make up Being Orange.

What is currently your favorite thing about Wartburg? Currently, my favorite thing about Wartburg is remembering it. Very few days go by without something reminding me of a Wartburg story...that I then tell to whoever will listen!

What does "Being Orange" mean to you? Be Orange is so much more than a slogan. It is a way of life. It is beyond the facts and figures that describe the college, although it also includes them. It is the "hellos" in the skywalks, the friendly faces in the administrative offices, and the genuine concern of the faculty. It is everything one cannot put into words about Wartburg. It is the "feeling" that makes Wartburg College home
