For most commuting students, The Concordia Experience involves making the college campus their “home away from home”. Here, commuting students discover that relationships with classmates, friends, faculty and staff are vital for taking advantage of all their college has to offer.
Concordia has a strong tradition of campus involvement by
the commuter population. Commuting students participate
in all aspects of campus life, including choirs, athletics,
dramatic productions, yearbook staff, clubs, daily chapel services, community service events, off-campus adventures, and activities planned by the Residence Life Staff. They hold elected or appointed positions in the Student Government Association (SGA), honors societies, and various other clubs and organizations.
A Commuter Council meets weekly on campus to address issues related to commuting students; all commuting students are welcome to attend.
Between classes, the Commuter Lounge, The Schoenfeld Campus Center and the Commons are popular places for commuting students to socialize with friends, study, and get something to eat. Each of these locations has WiFi for commuting students’ convenience.
The Krenz Academic Center provides quieter study areas, assistance from the librarians and computing stations. All commuting students are provided access to the College’s computing network and email, so even when they are home, connections with campus are never more than a click away!
Commuting students who drive to campus must register their vehicle with the Manager of Public Safety, obtain a permit, and park on College property. Lockers are available in the Schoenfeld Campus Center, and can be arranged through College Services.
