History

History: Outfly is a Wartburg tradition that started in the 1890’s. Its German name is “Ausflug,” and it occurs once a year during the Fall Term. This student-initiated holiday lasts one day, in which classes are cancelled and different activities are planned. The date of this day is only known to the college president and student body president. 

Timeline: 1890’s – Present.
