MOUNT PLEASANT — Iowa Wesleyan University's Retro Radiothon this past weekend raised more than $1.03 million, exceeding the fundraising effort's $1 million goal.

“The event not only raised resources to advance the growth and vision of the university, it also created more awareness of the university and its $55.1 million annual economic impact on southeast Iowa," IW President Steve Titus said. "We are committed to providing a high quality, relevant and affordable university education for all learners in our region. The support of our community and the region of southeast Iowa is essential to our future vision of being a top 25 college in the Midwest."

The 72-hour live-broadcast event featured numerous activities for students, staff, alumni and community members.
