Our first campus architect, Edward L. Tilton, never would have built an Ivory tower. After serving as the architect for Ellis Island, he certainly understood the ideals of equality, humanity, and courage.
In addition to our smart and caring faculty, you’ll have access to some of the finest technology and performing arts resources around. A perfect blend of old and new, our facilities reflect our history and our future. Students, faculty and staff alike take pride in our safe, clean, and inviting campus. Simply put, Concordia College’s facilities will help nourish your mind, body, and spirit.
Here are just some of the many Concordia College spaces and places you’ll discover:
The Donald A. Krenz Academic Center contains technology- enhanced classrooms, including the 82-seat Pietruski Auditorium, a 20-station computer teaching room, and the Darlene Hedin Krenz Center for New Media and Digital Production for electronic and digital media instruction.

The Sommer Center for Worship and the Performing Arts includes a recital/lecture hall with tiered seating for 315 and the Ralph C. Schultz Chapel. The recital hall has hosted recording sessions for artists such as Itzhak Perlman, Yehudi Menuhin, and Harry Connick, Jr., as well as our own Concordia Choir. The wall separating the two spaces can be opened, resulting in a performance space seating approximately 715 people.
