Student Life at Concordia
With the majority of Concordia's students living on campus, there is always something going on both during the week and on the weekends. Many of our students come from out of state, meaning they stick around during the weekends. The Student Activities Council regularly schedules fun and safe activities and events like concerts, comedic performances, dances and much more.Explore life on campus
“The Concordia community is like nothing I’ve ever been a part of. People wave and hold open doors for each other. The professors pray before every class. During the summer of 2020, the faculty and staff worked so hard for it to be possible for everyone to come back because everyone wanted to be back.”

If you haven't already, check out the various scholarships we offer to our full-time undergrad students. Be sure to talk to your admissions counselor if you have any questions on what you can qualify for.

Each semester, there is a multitude of jobs available on campus within various departments. This is a good way to hone your skills, learn more about Concordia and even earn extra money for your education.
Get To Know Our Hometown
We're located in Seward (pop. 7,200), which has a small-town feel with a close-knit supportive community. Concordia and Seward are intertwined, as a former Concordia president puts it, "What's good for Seward is good for Concordia, and what's good for Concordia is good for Seward."
In Seward, you'll find a busy Rockwell-esque downtown filled with coffee shops, restaurants, an art gallery, a movie theater, a bowling alley and locally-owned stores. Seward is a community where our students and residents feel safe, as it was recently listed as the second safest city in Nebraska and in the top 10% nationwide.Find your way home to Seward
