Wittenberg's Founding: March 11, 1845
2014 Founder's Day:
From Myers Hall to the Kissing Bridge to an age-old academic Commencement ritual, Wittenberg is immersed in tradition.
These traditions have been created by an inimitable history that began in 1845. Together, Wittenberg's history and traditions make the university the distinguishable place it is today.
In its early years Wittenberg wavered on a permanent home. It wasn't until Ezra Keller, Wittenberg's founder and first president, stepped upon the highest point in South-Central Ohio that Wittenberg would have a permanent place to lay its first cornerstone. Today, Wittenberg's greatest traditions continue — a commitment to academic excellence in a changing world that is focused on preparing students to thrive in their personal and professional lives.
On Monday, March 11, 2014, we are going to party like its 1845! Join us in celebrating Founders’ Day by wearing your Wittenberg gear, wherever you are!
Also, please consider giving $18.45, $184.50, $1845.00 or even $1,845,000 in celebration of Wittenberg’s founding and for the educational mission that has continued for over 160 years.
