From Concordia College

A strong foundation in the liberal arts runs through our entire curriculum. All students complete two of our signature integrative learning experiences (PEAKs) where the focus is on active learning that occurs outside of the traditional classroom. With 32,000 alumni across the nation and the globe, the Cobber community extends well beyond the borders of our campus. We call it the worldwide Cobber network and its benefits include access to mentors, leads on internships/jobs and lots of expert advice. As a college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Concordia is strongly rooted in the tradition of free inquiry and dialogue. We welcome students from a variety of faith and nonfaith backgrounds, and we value the diverse perspectives that everyone brings to our learning community.

    I traveled to Concordia College with my mom in the middle of a wet storm, we hydroplaned into a ditch, we're fine, but we had to get a hotel. We had to have our appointments and visits pushed back, but they were very accommodating and stayed in contact with us in order to make sure I'd still be able to tour the campus and see the dorms. A professor from the Nursing department met with me and my mom on a Saturday when he usually would not even be in the building! My mother and her mother both attended Concordia in the 90s and allowed my grandmother to attend because she was part of the staff. They were very accommodating then, too, and allowed her to leave work to go to class. Overall, this school has made me excited to go to college! Sure, I'm a little nervous, but I know that I'll be in great hands at Concordia.

    I love Concordia for its teachers, how easy schedules are to manage, and their Dining Services are the best in the state! People there are always there to help in any way they can. The Career Center is a helpful tool in figuring out how the future might pan out, and they do get you out in 4 years as long as you don't switch your major after your Softmore year to a completely different department.
    Concordia provides a small, safe environment where you can learn from professors who take the time to know you. The music building is spectacular and Dr. Haberman is an amazing band director. During band, he is constantly motivating us to be better. Working with Dr. Wakefield, the clarinet professor, is also great. He works with whatever flaws you have as an instrumentalist and helps you to overcome them. Concordia feels like a second family, especially in the music building. The campus is small enough that it feels like home. You can walk around campus and engage in multiple conversations because you know that many people on campus. This college is a great place for college students to find a second home.
