Transfer Student Stories
Allison Richards '14
Eau Claire, Wisc.
Elementary Education Major
I visited Concordia and absolutely fell in love with its close community feeling, its mission of BREW (Becoming Responsibly Engaged in the World), the abundance of academic and extracurricular opportunities and the support system which immediately made me feel at home.
Simon Erlandson '14
Exercise Science Major; Biology and Psychology Minor
If I could give any advice to incoming students or transfer students, it would be to not be afraid of change. It's a scary thing having to start all over again at another school, but don't be afraid of it.
Levi Bachmeier '14
West Fargo, N.D.
Social Studies Education Major; Coaching Minor
I remember my first few weeks at Concordia, I felt unsure if this was the place for me or if I should be looking into a different college that would be my "perfect fit." I quickly realized that if I never let myself feel at home, I never really would be.
