Preface

The Wartburg College Archives is responsible for the collection and preservation of records that document the college’s history, development, operation, policies, people, activities, and events.

The Archives is committed to providing access to holdings. However, access to some items may be restricted by their fragile condition or by contractual agreement with the donors, and it may not be possible at all times to provide appropriate machinery for reading, viewing or accessing non-print materials.

Biographical Sketch/Agency History

History: Wartburg College campus spans 118 acres. Within these acres are a variety of buildings, suited for classrooms, living accommodations, and recreational opportunities. Wartburg’s campus is unique in that much of the campus is connected by a system of second-story skyways and covered walkways. The oldest building on campus is Old Main, constructed in 1880. The newest building is the Wartburg-Waverly Wellness Center, built in 2009.

Warburg has reached high levels of success in regards to sustainability. Under the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS), Wartburg has been given a gold rating, and has achieved the honor of being the second private school in the Midwest and ninth in the nation to achieve this rating. Some of the projects that contributed to this achievement include installing water bottle filters around campus, and partnering with local energy utility to fund a wind turbine to offset the Wartburg-Waverly Sports & Wellness Center’s energy consumption.
