1). “Scholarship Day Applicants and “Prospective Students are treated like gods and goddesses at the expense of the Matriculated Students.

(i.e. Scholarship Day Applicants are given priority in usage of all academic facilities, and matriculated students are threatened that they “will be escorted out of the building by Campus Security if they don't comply. It happened to me on several occasions when I was a student.)

(example #2: Scholarship Day Applicants are given whatever they want to eat, while Matriculated Students aren't even allowed a glass of milk with their sack lunches while campus is shut down for these applicants!)

2). NEVER take any Computer Science classes from Dr. Terry Letsche! Take Dr. John Zelle instead because you will learn a lot more. When I asked Dr. Letsche a question, he always gave me the answers when I didn't want that. I learned NOTHING from Dr. Letsche.

3). NEVER ask Dr. Vicki Edelnant for help at the Pathways Center! I asked her for advice on a number of occasions, and she yelled at me for doing so. She has psychosis issues to resolve, but won't admit it.

4). NEVER take classes with Dr. Mariah Birgen! She is known as “She Birgen for a reason…She dodges questions when you ask her for help during Office Hours and breast-feeds her children in class while teaching. She's obsessed with Vensim PLE and Maple software for MA 250 Calculus, and she doesn't know how to teach well at all. She and her husband both work at the MCSP Department.

5). The Dining Services Department doesn't care about students' dietetic needs, even if you have a Dr.'s notes explaining your health issues. I brought in two Dr.'s notes explaining my dietary needs, and the Department scoffed at them. Nothing changed even after a 90-minute conference with the Director, Margaret Empie.

6). If you're not a Student-Athlete, the Dining Services Department tells you

This is only for the athletes.
So, non-sthletes are forced out of line and have to eat fruit and water. This happened to me every single weekend of the term.

I only attended Wartburg for one term because of these six reasons (and nine other reasons, too). Pick a different school!
