Holiday Blessings from Our Campus Community


As the holidays approach, we’re often reminded to pause and reflect on our blessings. This comes easily because we have so many reasons to celebrate this year. For example, this fall, we:

  • welcomed our third largest class of new students in NWU history,
  • broke ground on our new baseball and softball stadiums,
  • completed the renovation of Elder Theatre,
  • launched a new major in public health.

We continue to invest in your student’s education and provide those impactful experiences that you expect of a Nebraska Wesleyan education.

I’m especially thankful for the daily opportunities to visit with your student whether that be in the dining hall, on the sidewalk on their way to class, or at my open office hours. These personal interactions with me as well as your student’s interactions with their professors, advisor, staff, coaches—to name a few—are the core of our personalized education.

I am thankful for our thriving classrooms, student organizations, athletic teams, and school spirit found all across campus this year. We deeply believe in the value of a campus community that learns, plays, works and lives together. This kind of engagement has an incredible impact on students’ lives that will last well beyond graduation.

All of us at Nebraska Wesleyan are thankful each and every day for the opportunity to educate and prepare your student for a successful career and a fulfilling, purposeful life. And we’re thankful for you, too, for realizing the value of our education, and for all you do to support your student’s success.

Best wishes for a happy, safe and meaningful holiday season.
