Centennial and Vollmer Halls, built nearly 70 years ago, have remained largely the same since their construction. Originally designed for women, the two residence halls are now home to approximately one-half of Wartburg’s first-year class. If we reach our $9 million fundraising goal by the end of the 2021-22 academic year, construction will be able to begin immediately in summer of 2022, rather than the following summer.
Students expressed a need for additional study and lounge spaces, and these residence halls will both answer this call and prioritizei nclusive community. The designs provide students with modern and accessible housing, building on a foundation of student success that extends far beyond the classroom. Improvements to these living and learning environments will provide opportunities for students to focus on wellness activities like yoga, mindfulness, and healthy cooking.
