Effective immediately, we are transitioning each of our on-campus visits into a virtual visit that can include:

  • Zoom meetings with your admissions counselors, a professor, and athletic coaches, and/or a music ensemble director.
  • A virtual tour of the campus.
  • Zoom meeting with one of our student Ambassadors.

We know it won’t be the same as an on-campus visit, but we are confident you will still be able to see what makes Wartburg worth it through this virtual opportunity. If you are interested in setting up a virtual visit, please complete the virtual visit form or contact Dawn Sundberg at or (319) 352-8287. We appreciate your understanding during this uncertain time as we work to keep you, your family, and the entire Wartburg community as safe as possible.
