Wittenberg University is a small, private, four-year liberal arts college located in Springfield, Ohio. Founded in 1842 in Wooster, Ohio, Wittenberg moved three years later to its present location.
"Wittenberg University is a nationally recognized college for the liberal arts and sciences affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Wittenberg is distinguished by its strong interdisciplinary programs such as East Asian Studies and Russian Area Studies. Although Wittenberg’s traditional strengths have been in the liberal arts, recently the sciences, management and education have also developed into popular majors for students. Eight thriving pre-professional programs contribute to the educational experience of Wittenberg students, 70 percent of whom eventually pursue graduate studies" [ ]
The college is named after the University of Wittenberg in Germany, where Martin Luther posted his famous 95 theses.
The campus body is made up of 2,000 students and 145 full-time faculty members. Sport teams are known as the Tigers; however, the school color is red not orange. The Wittenberg football team is the top scoring team in the nation.
