Mini-Witt 2019

Local Elementary School Students to Experience College Life Through Mini-Witt Event

As the fall semester comes to a close, it’s time once again for Wittenberg’s annual Mini-Witt event, hosted by the community service program at the University’s Susan Hirt Hagen Center for Civic and Urban Engagement.

Mini-Witt is a chance for Wittenberg students to engage and connect with Springfield youth and will take place Saturday, Nov. 16, from 10:15 a.m. to noon in the Thomas Library.

Mini-Witt invites children in grades K-6 to Wittenberg for a fun-filled morning of crafts, projects, and mentorship as they experience a small taste of what it’s like to be a Tiger. Approximately 60 young students will be attending this year’s Mini-Witt. During the event, children will participate in five stations led by different Wittenberg organizations.

A wide variety of Wittenberg students will be volunteering to lead the stations, representing athletics, academics, and Greek Life organizations. This year, the five stations will be team building, crafts, literacy, games, and science, allowing participants to explore and discover many new interests.

“We hope that Wittenberg students will learn about how important service is and how meaningful an experience like this can be for children in the community,” said Community Service Coordinator Kari Truax, a Wittenberg senior from Carmel, Indiana. “We also hope that they can act as role models for these kids.”
