Alyssa Edwards

Claiming her calling

NAME: Alyssa Edwards


HOMETOWN: Kingston, Ill. 

MAJOR: Music and journalism and communication

INVOLVEMENT ON CAMPUS: Service Trips, Wartburg Symphony Orchestra, soccer, Wind Ensemble, three campus jobs (Knightcaller, pedagogy library assistant, intramurals)

FAVORITE OUTFLY MEMORY: We ask Nestle for a tour every year, and every year they turn us down. 

WHY WARTBURG: I chose Wartburg because of the great music program and the small class sizes. I greatly enjoyed knowing my professors would know my name and care about how I did in their classes. 

WHAT DID YOU NEVER IMAGINE YOU WOULD DO BEFORE COMING TO WARTBURG: I never imagined I would be able to play soccer and be involved in music at the same time. I also did not think I would be able to change my major three times, but Wartburg faculty helped me find something I am passionate about.
