CAMPUS VISIT

Wartburg College is excited to welcome prospective students back to campus, and is dedicated to keeping our students, faculty, staff, and prospective students and families safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Campus Health Recovery Team (CHRT), in accordance with federal and state guidelines, has established guidelines that make the health and safety of the Wartburg community a priority. The Wartburg community, as well as guests to campus, are required to follow these guidelines:

  • Practice proper hand hygiene. 
  • Self-monitor daily for symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Maintain at least 6 feet of separation from others, when possible.
  • Utilize a face mask, cloth facial covering, or face shield indoors or outdoors when physical distancing is not possible. 

Be Orange for a day. It’s worth it!
Visit Wartburg and earn awards. Totally immerse yourself in campus life. Meet our friendly students. Grab a cool cookie at the Den. Check out a class. See a game or go to a concert. Visit with a professor. Learn what makes Wartburg “worth it.” Did you know Wartburg was recently ranked #1 in Iowa and #5 in the U.S. for job placement?
