Student Life

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 activities and events like concerts, comedic performances, dances and much more.

“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.”

“My professors’ passions were evident and their passion helped me find mine. Learning from professors who are so dedicated, it was like I wanted to be around them as much as I can so I can learn everything I can while I’m here at Concordia.”
