Hey Wartburg College! Thank you for sending us the amazing Lindsey as a summer intern at Foster Source! She spent the afternoon with us at Groundwork Ranch as we worked with The Lion Project to plan a promo video about our therapeutic services for foster parents. #WartburgWorthIt
Thank you for donating to Indianola’s Post Prom!
My name is Tim Amdahl, I’m the author of Broken Silence Badge 2717. I wanted to write a story that shared my experiences as a Correctional Officer. Many know very little of what goes on inside a prison, but not anymore. This book shares my entire career from the day I walked in to the day I stood my last role call. Here you get to witness me change before you, from a cadet to a seasoned career veteran. I walked in nervous and unsure, but left one of the most respected and talked about officers in the state.

...number 419!
Gotta love your fellow Knights! 🧡🖤🧡
Found this on our car after a hike in Arches today.

Hope all is well in Waverly. I was a graduate student studying college student development at UNI in 1980 when I took a graduate assistantship at Wartburg to be the Residence Director of Hebron Hall when it converted to a male dorm. I made sure the football players stopped throwing their chicken wing bones into the hallway, lol. And, under the guidance of Dean Hawley I directed the Student Opinion Survey that was funded by an educational research agency housed at Michigan State University. I have the letter they sent praising the work we did. It went so well that I wrote a research article in a referred educational journal about the survey that included using an Environment Referent form, which revealed the reason the students' biggest complaint back then wasn't the lack of parking for students who had cars on campus; but rather, the parking lot was unfinished meaning it was muddy and messy every time it rained. Being from the NYC area, I learned about the smell of money in the air, egg cheese sandwiches, tornado warning sirens, etc. I still have photos of my RAs Keith, Randy, etc around the dorm and out playing miniature golf. I was made the quiet surgery "patient" in a short skit with two of my RAs who played doctors. One "doctor" proclaimed to the other "doctor", using his regular voice, Its A Can Sir, and promptly pulled out a can from under the sheet that was covering me; the other doctor in a foreign voice said, No It Was Two More, and pulled out two cans. I was shivering, which fit right into the scene. It was all a great experience and hope to visit one day soon.

Wartburg’s Beckstrom accepts new call to Valparaiso University - Wartburg College 10/18/2021

Wartburg’s Beckstrom accepts new call to Valparaiso University - Wartburg College

The Rev. Brian Beckstrom has accepted a new call to serve as the assistant vice president for mission, church and ministry at Valparaiso University in Indiana beginning Jan. 1, 2022.

Beckstrom, Wartburg College’s Herbert and Cora Moehlmann Chaplaincy Chair and dean of spiritual life, has been with the college since 2009.

“For 12 years it has been my great privilege to make good on Wartburg’s promise to help students discover and claim their callings. Watching God at work in the lives of students, faculty and staff is the most fulfilling thing I have ever done in my professional life. The hardest part has always been having to say goodbye when God calls them to use their gifts elsewhere. That is exactly what the Wartburg community is called to do, but it’s never easy to let them go,” he said.

Beckstrom, who was named the first dean of spiritual life at Wartburg when the position was created in May 2018, is responsible for the college’s ministry program and promotion of faith exploration and development in and out of the classroom. He also has taught courses in Wartburg’s leadership program and Department of Religion. His last day at Wartburg will be Thursday, Dec. 16.

Learn more about his work at Wartburg and his new calling at the link: https://www.wartburg.edu/2021/10/18/wartburgs-beckstrom-accepts-new-call-to-valparaiso-university/

Thank you, Pastor Brian, for all the ways you have served and led us at Wartburg, and we wish you all the best in your next calling!

14-Time National Champion Wartburg Adds Women's Wrestling - Wartburg College Athletics

Big news from Wartburg Athletics today: Wartburg is adding women's wrestling to its athletic roster, becoming the first American Rivers Conference school to offer women the opportunity to compete at the collegiate level in the growing sport.

With the addition of this new team, Head Wrestling Coach Eric Keller will be promoted to director of wrestling, allowing him to oversee both programs while retaining his coaching duties with the men's team. The search for the head women's wrestling coach will begin immediately. Wartburg is the only NCAA Division III school in Iowa that now offers a women's wrestling program.

"Wartburg wrestling has always had an expectation of excellence, striving to be great in everything we do," Keller said. "I am fired up about this new chapter in history and for the opportunity to grow women's wrestling in the state of Iowa and across the nation."

Competition will begin in the 2022-23 season.

Wartburg's Keep on Learning introduces topics in science fiction - Wartburg College 10/13/2021

Wartburg's Keep on Learning introduces topics in science fiction - Wartburg College

Steve Palmquist, a longtime theater arts and speech teacher, will cover all things science-fiction during Wartburg’s Keep on Learning community education series beginning Thursday, Oct. 14.

Steve will introduce topics including historical science fiction, movies and television, sub-genres, and the evolution of popular conventions during his session, “Science Fiction in Print, Film & Television.” The class will continue on Oct. 21 and 28 and Nov. 4.

“One of the functions of science fiction is that it asks us to look at society, how it is now and at what could be either positively or negatively changed. One of the subtopics that I will teach is what is a utopia and dystopia. Society is always changing, and these works can help us look to the future,” he said.

Classes meet Thursday mornings in the Heritage Room of Saemann Student Center, beginning with coffee at 9 a.m., followed by the presentation from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Pre-registration is not required. If you enjoy the first class and decide to continue, a $40 fee is payable at the second class. Parking is available near Saemann Student Center for those entering campus via Wartburg Boulevard.

Special thanks to Waverly Health Center, which sponsors Keep on Learning!

Earlier this month, we announced that the Tomson Family Foundation made a $25,000 gift to establish the Tomson Family Foundation-Social Work Faculty Endowment Fund in celebration of the Department of Social Work's 75th anniversary. During the Department of Social Work’s reunion event during Homecoming & Family Weekend, we were able to announce a second matching gift that will allow this fund to impact even more students.

If our alumni and friends can match that original $25,000 gift, bringing the total of the fund to $50,000, the Tomson Family Foundation will commit an additional $25,000 to the fund, bringing our total endowment to $75,000 — a worthy goal in honor of the department's 75th anniversary.

Is there a better way to celebrate your favorite college holiday than releasing a new beer and naming it "Outfly"? If you can top this, we'd love to hear it 🧡🖤

So, uh, Colin, how do we get to sample some of the new Outfly beer in Waverly?? 😉

Brew man Colin wants to wish you all a Happy Outfly! Outfly is a surprise holiday that occurs once a year at Colin’s alma mater, Wartburg College. It’s a day of fun, games, and earned relaxation. For Colin, it’s an excuse to reveal our new aptly named German Schwarzbier: Outfly. Brewed with imported German malt and yeast, Outfly just finished up a long and cold lagering session in our tank. We look forward to tapping it and sharing it with you all tomorrow!

In the meantime…join us tonight at 7pm for QuizBang Trivia and food from the fantastic folks at 2 Cavemen Grill'in!

Cheers!

Called to Serve: Kelley returns to lift up the Cherokee Nation that raised him - Wartburg College 10/11/2021

Called to Serve: Kelley returns to lift up the Cherokee Nation that raised him - Wartburg College

To mark Indigenous Peoples Day, read about Jay Kelley ’93, a member of the Cherokee Nation who played baseball and studied history at Wartburg. He has used his degree and background as a school teacher over the years. "When I teach history, I tie in everything to give a full perspective of this country; we’ve had our bumps and bruises, but I want my students to know the only restrictions on their success should be the ones they place on themselves,” he said for a recent Wartburg Magazine article.

Now, Jay is back in his native Oklahoma serving as a Cherokee Nation family advocate. "My experiences … have given me a wealth of knowledge I can share in my vocation working in the Cherokee Nation,” he said. “We are proud as Cherokee people. Most of us are educated, employed, and thriving. We can have more. It is my hope that my efforts can help lift up more people to success.”
