“Being a part of a summer experience at Wartburg West drastically changed the direction of my life.” 

– Abigail Wetzler ’17

NAME: Abigail Wetzler

MAJOR: Business Administration

CAREER PLANS: I am moving to Japan to teach English for a year.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE WARTBURG:  I chose Wartburg for the individualized approach to education and the ability for me to connect with my professors and a large alumni and friend network. The opportunity to live and study in Denver, Colo., finalized the decision for me, because I knew I wanted to experience living in an urban area while still being able to maintain connections with campus. 

WHY WAS YOUR WARTBURG WEST EXPERIENCE WORTH IT: I had an amazing experience with a women’s shelter, where I learned so much about homelessness and what it means to be a woman. My experiences also allowed me to see things from a different perspective and learn more about my professional aspirations. I made lasting friendships and connections I will cherish for the rest of my life.
