Cross Wire Blogs & Authors
LURA AJDINI WHERE IS HOME?
About: What does it mean to be part of a multicultural environment? From stories regarding the celebration of diversity to experiencing the road to independence and self-empowerment. We will be traveling around the world through the stories of our global citizens.
BRITT AVERY FAITH OFF THE SHELF
About: Everyone has a faith of some sort. Whether that be a spiritual faith, a faith in something happening (like graduation), or faith in your own personal abilities, faith is important. With Wartburg’s core values focused on challenging students in their faith and learning, “Taking Your Faith Off The Shelf” will provide stories from students, faculty, staff, and the community about how their faith empowers them to do the above and beyond.
LIAM EASLEY CEDAR VALLEY AMPLIFIED
About: Music is my passion. I love supporting underground and local acts and giving publicity to bands that need it. Iowa has a rich music culture, and I hope to bring it to light with “Cedar Valley Amplified.”
KATIE HIRV ART & MUSING
About: I have always been passionate about art, graphic design and photography, which was my inspiration behind creating “Art and Musing.” I will use this space to share artwork on campus, ranging from art pieces around campus to sharing projects students have created and the stories behind them.
RYAN REEBENACKER THE BIG LEAD
About: Sports at Wartburg College means more than simply competing: it means dominating. “The Big Lead” breaks down the hottest topics in Wartburg athletics and provides content to sports-hungry fans that follow the Knights year after year.
