Wartburg College Service Trips

Sack lunches for the Wartburg College Service Trips students headed to New Orleans to help with hurricane recovery. Thought I would send them off with love and positive vibes for what will surely be a challenging and rewarding experience. 🥰🙏⚜️
Eryn Perry '21, the Outstanding Senior in computer science, has discovered that field overlaps nicely with her other major in neuroscience.

“A lot of research in neuroscience involves computation and predicting and using models, so computer science, data mining, and machine-learning skills come in handy with that type of research," she says. "But then additionally, a lot of modeling in the realm of computer science is taking inspiration from biological systems."

She is part of the Wartburg Scholars Program and the Academically and Civically Engaged Scientists Scholarship Program (ACES), as well an executive member for Wartburg College Service Trips. Eryn plans to pursue a Ph.D. in neuroscience at the University of Southern California.

Her experience at Wartburg has empowered her as a woman in STEM.

“I’ve definitely gained a lot more confidence being a female in computer science," she says. "Wartburg has taught me that it’s okay to have confidence in myself. I know there will probably be some obstacles in my way, just being female, but I’ve been fortunate to not feel that at Wartburg."

Congrats, Eryn! 🎓

Here's the story of Maria Munguia-Cortes, a freshman who's leading a service trip back to her hometown of Immokalee, Florida. The team will work alongside farmworkers, speak to Guadalupe Center's high school students about college and spend time with young children at several educational facilities. To help support Wartburg College Service Trips, you can give a gift at www.wartburg.edu/givetoservice. Next week, four service trips will head out to Florida, Tennessee, NYC and Denver. Keep up with them during Winter Break by following #BurgBreaks17!
The four service trip destinations for Winter Break have just been revealed by Wartburg College Service Trips! Alumni, any words to encourage current students to take the plunge??

Service trip 1: Head to NYC over Winter Break! This trip will focus on teaching financial literacy in the public schools.

Service trip 2: This trip to Florida will serve several nonprofit organizations in Immokalee, including the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, Guadalupe Center, Immokalee Foundation, Friendship House, and The Boys and Girls Club.

Service trip 3: On this trip to either Virginia or Tennessee, the primary focus will be conservation management and ecology in one of the state parks.

Service trip 4: Our final Winter Break service trip opportunity will be focused on children and immigration in either Texas or Colorado.

Students, do something amazing and transformative during Winter Break at the end of February! Apply today to be part of a service trip. Applications are due Friday, Dec. 2. #WartburgWorthIt
From Keegan Birkitch '15: Perhaps the most meaningful Sir Victor and the "Worth It" sign photo was revisiting a home that Olivia Barnes '15 and I spent building last year through Wartburg College Service Trips. We led a trip to Wilmington, NC, over Tour Week 2015, where we helped build the outside of a home for a deserving, hardworking, future homeowner whom we were lucky enough to meet. In August 2016, we returned to this home and got to see the final product — which included work boots and children's shoes. This house is not just a structure we helped build. It's now a HOME! So, so touching to see.
