Congratulations to Miguel Sanchez Marin and Allison Maybee on being elected as the new Vice President and Secretary of Global Connections. We are excited and looking forward to having them join our team to make the next year better and more engaging for everyone.


It is time to have new GC executive team members for the next school year (Fall 2017-Spring 2018). If interested, please nominate a GC member you think would be good on the team, or nominate yourself! We are looking for members to fill positions for Secretary and Vice-President.
We ask that all nominations be in by Wednesday, March 29, at 11:59 P.M. to [email protected]

Once we receive nominations, we will double check with all nominees that they want to apply for the position, we will ask for a brief cover letter (description on why you want the position), and then we will have elections in April.

Global Connections each year pairs an International student with an American student in order to promote cross cultural understanding and also to help foreign students get accustomed to life so far away from home.
Here are some of the pairs.
Please send in more pictures and remember that the pair with the most likes stands a chance to win a $25 gift card from the Wartburg bookstore.

& IMPORTANT!!! Give the money to Leif when you see him. If you don't remember who he is, here is a picture of our lovely Leif.
Your money plus Global Connections' money pays for bowling shoes and 2 hours of bowling. If you want to leave earlier than 11 p.m., you may need to walk back. Luckily the bowling alley isn't too far from campus!


Hey guys! Just a small reminder that TONIGHT is BOWLING !!! :)
Be excited and bring your partner and $5 to the event. If you want food and drinks then bring more money as that will be a bit more expensive.
Meet @ Student Info Desk at 8:45 PM. We have drivers who will be driving us there and we are expected to stay for about 2 hours, but you are free to leave before that if you want.
Have a great day and see you tonight,
GC Team.


Thank you to everyone who filled out the survey monkey for bowling. We will let you know the exact day soon.

Hope everyone is excited for the PHOTO COMPETITION We have a $25 giftcard to the Wartburg Bookstore that we want to give to the partners who take a photo together and gets the most likes on our page. Send your photos (along with a sentence about what you did or what you learned) to [email protected] and then we will go ahead and post them.

The competition will end in early December. So if you meet with your partner more than once before December, keep sending in your photos!
With love,
The GC Team.

WCGC Kick off event. 09/24/2016

Wartburg College Global Connections had its kick off event yesterday and it was great fun for people to meet thier partners. If you have not yet already reached out to your partner then please do so!!
Thank you to everyone who came to the event and contributed to making this year the start of a successful one.


Hey Global Connections participants!!!

The team paired everyone up last night. To meet each other, we will get together this Friday, September 23. We decided to meet at 5:15 p.m. in the Hub (near the Den and mailboxes). We will help you find your partner(s), briefly talk about expectations, and then we will all head up to the Mensa before it closes and we can sit together.

We tried our best to make matches based on the information you gave us. Since there were a few more domestic students than international students some international students have two partners, feel free to hang out with them together or separately, whatever you want :)

After this Friday, it is up to you and your partner to meet in the future (such as go to Movie Knight, grab coffee, etc.).
If you can't meet this Friday, you can email your partner and find time to meet! (I-Club BBQ is this Saturday, so you could always take your partner there instead.....)

Let us know if you have any further questions,

Thanks and see you Friday,
Global Connections Team.

If anyone is interested in being apart of our organization and would like to be paired with an American/International student, please fill out this quick survey so we can pair you with someone you will enjoy getting to know:
It shouldn't take more than 2 minutes. Fill it out before Friday at midnight, that way the executive team has enough time to match you up before our first event on Monday, oct. 6. More details will soon be sent your way!
