New experiences with different cultures have the potential to change a person’s perspective. Just ask Josh Hilgenberg and Payge Smith.
Josh and Payge, both seniors this fall, were among a group of 17 ‘Berg students who traveled to the Texas-Mexico border June 17-24 for a weeklong service trip in a Mexican immigrant community. Service Learning on the U.S./Mexico Border allowed students to immerse themselves in a different culture.

During Mark Zeno’s final semester at Heidelberg in 1996, funds were running short, and he needed to pay his bill before graduation. He didn’t know where those resources were going to come from.

The curtain has closed on “Puttin’ on the ‘Berg,” Alumni Weekend 2017. Nearly 500 alumni and guests – the most in recent years -- returned to campus last weekend to experience “everything old is new again.”
“We had great participation from reunion classes and those who continue to come back year after year after year,” said Ashley Helmstetter, executive director of Alumni Engagement and Major Gifts. “We are always so happy to see them, but it warms my heart to welcome other alumni who are not in reunion classes returning in greater numbers each year.”
