Kindergarten Teacher at Hennepin Elementary School
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 that immediately made me feel at home.
Grant Systems Coordinator, Saint Paul Public Schools Foundation
Sociology and Political Science Major
For me, being a sociology major gave me opportunities that I never thought I would have as an undergraduate student. I went with faculty to Scotland to learn how to write an ethnography on a subculture, and I presented research on sustainability in higher education with faculty at the Social Science History Association Conference in Vancouver, Canada.
Nursing and Religion Major
I’ve been able to do everything I’ve wanted to do at Concordia. Because of my experiences, I know that I will be able to serve others by combining my passions for healing and interfaith issues.
