This isn’t what anyone had expected or planned for Wittenberg’s 175th year, but we were still determined to honor our heritage and celebrate our impact. Continue to join us in reflecting on the impact Wittenberg had on your life. Visit our special Celebrating 175 Years! website to make a gift to help ensure that the University is a beacon for seekers of knowledge and justice for years to come.
Even though we were not together on campus for Homecoming, we continue to be together in spirit. Members of the reunion classes of 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, and 2010 are also continuing to meet to plan for in-person gatherings during Homecoming 2021, provided conditions allow. If anyone is still interested in serving on their respective reunion committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
