Rochester Area Celebration

Gift Amount

Together we will welcome President Ward and introduce her to members of the Luther College community from the Rochester area. Please join us for this special gathering to celebrate Luther's 11th presidency.

Thursday, April 16, 2020 - POSTPONED

03/11/2020: Luther has made the difficult decision to postpone the Presidential Welcome Tour that was scheduled to take place with events in Phoenix, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Rochester, Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Iowa City/Cedar Rapids, and Des Moines. The college is taking this precautionary measure because of the rapidly evolving situation related to the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), and our deep concern for the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and the communities we were so looking forward to visiting as part of this program.

It is our hope to reschedule these events sometime in the next academic year.
