Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life. It’s not something to take lightly. Use the questions below to start a discussion with your parents, or someone you’re comfortable discussing your future with.

Questions to ask Your Parents 1. What factors do you think are important for me to consider when choosing a college?

“When you come to campus, you can see whether Wartburg is the right college for you. You can’t tell that from a website.”

2. What college costs am I responsible for, and what will you help with? (Think about it all: tuition, housing, meals, books, pocket money, car, gas, insurance, parking, etc.)

—MacKenzie Compton, Second-year, Admissions Ambassador

3. When can I schedule my campus visit to Wartburg?

PARENTS: Your student is getting ready to choose a college. You probably have your first choice of where you want him or her to go—your alma mater, a school close to home, the cheapest option—but it’s important to let your student make this decision on his or her own.

But at Wartburg, each student can excel and stand out, be it in music, athletics, the classroom, or something else. 2. Do you want a well-rounded education? Wartburg is a liberal arts school, which means students take classes on a variety of topics. Outside of the classroom, there are student activities, worship services, and other ways to learn and grow.

3. What are you looking for in a college? Think about location, size, academic programs, study abroad opportunities, internships, etc. 4. Are you ready to schedule your visit to Wartburg? Your student can’t know whether Wartburg is right for him or her without a campus visit. Schedule one today at www.Wartburg.edu/Visit.

Parents, think college is too expensive? Did you know the average family spends $234,900—or $13,818 per year— raising a child up to age 17? College is just another investment in giving your child every opportunity to succeed. Source: Expenditures on Children by Families (2011), USDA

At Wartburg, Orange is more than something you can see or smell—it’s a color you can hear. And the sound of Orange is the sound of music. If music is your life, you belong at Wartburg. Whether you sing, play, or do both, there’s a place for you. Perform around the world and learn from musical masters, like opera star Simon Estes. You can choose a major that’s music focused—music education, music therapy, music performance, and more—or you can participate in music in addition to your non-music major. Either way, you’ll meet lifelong friends and make lifelong memories.

Christmas with Wartburg Each year, hundreds of vocalists and musicians come together to present Christmas with Wartburg. The popular performance can be seen both on the Wartburg campus and at Lutheran Church of Hope in Des Moines, Iowa, which holds more than 2,500 concert-goers.

Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life. It’s not something to take lightly. Use the questions below to start a discussion with your parents, or someone you’re comfortable discussing your future with.

Questions to ask Your Parents 1. What factors do you think are important for me to consider when choosing a college?

“When you come to campus, you can see whether Wartburg is the right college for you. You can’t tell that from a website.”

2. What college costs am I responsible for, and what will you help with? (Think about it all: tuition, housing, meals, books, pocket money, car, gas, insurance, parking, etc.)

—MacKenzie Compton, Second-year, Admissions Ambassador

3. When can I schedule my campus visit to Wartburg?

PARENTS: Your student is getting ready to choose a college. You probably have your first choice of where you want him or her to go—your alma mater, a school close to home, the cheapest option—but it’s important to let your student make this decision on his or her own.
