Concordia is in a great, safe town

From the Nurse...

I wanted to take the time to introduce myself to all the new parents of Concordia students. My name is Andreea Baker and I am the new Director of Health Services/Campus Nurse. I have been a nurse on a medical/renal unit for 4 years. I have really enjoyed my transition from hospital nursing to more of a clinic setting.

Parental Support for Your Student

Parental support is a must and by this time, your student is well into the fall semester here at CUNE. These past few weeks have brought changes for you and for your student. At this time, one of your main duties as a parent is to stay connected with your student.

What's more important than your student's IQ?

With the first days of the semester now in the rear view mirror, perhaps you’re wondering if your son/daughter is prepared to handle the rigors of college or the fast-changing world that awaits him or her upon graduation. Does your child possess enough intelligence to succeed?

Bulldog Bucks

Bulldog bucks provide students and their friends and family a way to add funds to a student account usable on campus at the Concordia University Bookstore, Coffee Shop, and the Doghouse Grill. A student can then utilize these funds by simply swiping their student ID card at these locations.


Be prepared for homesickness and be aware that it is not a symptom of immaturity or serious lack of adjustment to college.

President's Welcome

I’m feeling jealous! For the first fall since 1990 Laurie and I are not sending a child off to school. Our youngest, Phil, graduated from college in May. In our experience few things take the place of both the excitement and the anxiousness the first day a new school year brings. We found those feelings were magnified when sending a child off to college.
