About Wittenberg University
In surveying the grounds of what is now Wittenberg University, the Rev. Ezra Keller, the college's first president and founder, remarked: "This is a lovely spot for a literary institution," one that will attract hundreds of students "to drink at the pure fountains of knowledge, and then go forth into the world to do good." Today, that lovely spot now encompasses more than 100 acres of rolling hills and lush hollows across southwestern Ohio with architecturally distinct structures that embrace Wittenberg's past and provide a beautiful backdrop to the teaching excellence and faith-based learning environment that has defined the liberal arts University since its founding in 1845. Nationally recognized for accessible professors, best classroom experience, service excellence, and a superior athletics tradition, Wittenberg is home to 1,500 students, over 50 majors, minors and special programs, three graduate programs, and 25 varsity sports.
