Wittenberg University students encouraged to connect with Springfield community
26 Aug 2021
A Wittenberg University students head back to campus to kick off the 2021-22 school year, they’ll also be encouraged to find ways to become engaged in the City of Springfield as a whole.
With Wittenberg’s campus being just a short five minute walk from Downtown Springfield, the opportunities for students to enjoy the shopping, dining, fun and events are endless, says John Kelly, downtown events programmer for the Greater Springfield Partnership.
“In the last couple years, we’ve really tried to strategize how we can bridge the gap between the Wittenberg community and Downtown,” he says. “It helps to let the students really feel like part of the community.
“We want to really make them feel involved and really push the message that when they’re here they’re part of our community.”
