Meet Our Students
There’s no such thing as a typical Concordia student. In fact, we think each of our students is extraordinary. They arrive at Concordia College with a unique set of hopes, dreams, viewpoints, and life experiences.
Then something amazing happens. Bonds are made between students and faculty who form mentoring relationships, minds are opened, friendships grow that are life-lasting—and a true community in every sense of the word emerges.
College is the once-in-a-lifetime experience where you have the opportunity to share a community with people from around the country and the world. As a result, you’ll be immersed in a true melting pot of culture, thought, and experience. This is the kind of community that will enrich and empower your academic and life experience. And, Concordia is the kind of college where relationships happen easily, where everybody fits in, and where you can become part of something much larger than yourself.
