On April 5, we will again gather as a community to honor student achievement and academic excellence during our annual Liberal Arts in Action: A Celebration of Learning. Now in its seventh year, this event has quickly become a favorite tradition for me and Sharon as it reminds our campus and shows our extended community the exceptional education we provide. I want to thank this year's program coordinators, Cherie Rebar and Molly Wood. This is not an easy task to pull such a comprehensive program together, and they should be commended for their time and dedication. Read More...

I encourage you to attend. Read More...

The group's advisor and our political science professor, Ed Hasecke, had joined them. After Just Eve finished its caroling, the group headed to the Hasecke's home for a post-caroling get-together, where they sang around the family's dining room table. Read More...

As another calendar year begins to wind down, I think it is critical to look back and find moments to celebrate. I don't know how many of you are aware, but we begin every senior staff meeting with the sharing of celebratory news from across our respective areas, among our University colleagues, and even at times on personal levels.

With the fall semester now in full speed, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who helped to make our 2018 New Student Days a stellar experience. I heard from multiple families about how smooth move-in day was and how pleased they are that their student chose Wittenberg. Read More...
