What has surprised you most about working at Concordia? I think it is interesting how connected everyone is at Concordia. Many of the people that work here also went to school here or have a spouse that graduated from here. It is a great testament to Concordia University, Nebraska that shows how much people love this university!

What is it like to serve at Concordia? Concordia’s campus community has a family feel to it. I love that those who work here are invested in the betterment of the university and consider their work as service in a ministry instead of a job.
