Like many Norse, Tyler Wedeimeier ‘13, said he chose Luther because he just got “that feeling” when he visited campus. And “that feeling,” he says, “really came from the people on campus - his future coaches, teammates, faculty and staff.”
A Westgate, Iowa native, Tyler has played basketball all four years at Luther College, and one of his best memories is going to Nationals with the Basketball team. He is also the president of the Student Athletic Advisory Committee. Off the courts, Tyler enjoys biking, kayaking and riding horses.
As an education major, he hopes to one day become an athletic director and coach at a high school.
