ALUMNI & PARENT ENGAGEMENT

Connect with us. Wartburg alumni, parents, and friends live all over the world, but our “orange connection” keeps us connected. The resources on this page will help you stay involved with the “college of your brightest days”! You’ll find information about events in your area; alumni awards; ways to participate, promote, and provide in the life of the college; and links to news and feature stories, plus much more. Explore below, and contact the Alumni and Parent Engagement Office at alumni@wartburg.edu or 319-352-8491 with your questions. Once a Knight, always a Knight!

We are always amazed at all the wonderful things that are happening in the lives of our alumni. We publish some of these accolades in our Wartburg Magazine twice a year but can’t include all accomplishments. We invite you to join us on social media to share your news and stay connected to Wartburg. It’s a great way to share photos of your Wartburg friends, fun events, and exciting life experiences!
