In true Wittenberg fashion, all of the members of the class of 2015 arrived on campus Thursday morning with all of their belongings in tow; parents, siblings and other family members too! Wittenberg welcomed them to their home away from home with opened arms…a comforting feeling for all involved. I was labled a ‘mover’ and after a few trips up the three flights of stairs in New Hall I soon realized I would do what comes natural; greet and talk to the new students and parents who were attempting to unpack, make beds as sons and daughters were wishing there was no audience.
Many of these students we had a chance to meet on the road during our Witt Nation outings. To those who attended, they were already home. They had the ease of seeing many familiar faces. Parents were at ease as we had already created one of the many Wittenberg memories in their hometowns as we engaged the class of 2015 with alumni, past parents, current students and parents in 16 cities around the counrty. It was a great tour!
From the campus community, Witt Nation 2011 Crew, all of the alumni and your Director of Alumni Relations; welcome! We are excited you have join the many who selected Wittenberg as their home for the past 167 years. You will love your experience. Never forget to look around at your surroundings, your classmates, your professors—you will never see life through the same eyes, you will change daily as you grow academically, spiritually and phyically, and you will love every minute of this experience!
WELCOME CLASS OF 2015, you are now home!
All my best for your success,
