Outstanding Academics, Personal Focus

A Concordia education is about so much more than the diploma that comes at the end. It's about becoming a globally engaged, responsible person. It's about being challenged and growing as an individual. It's about making a difference in the world, and meeting some of your best friends along the way.

Bailey Hovland '18

After studying away in Washington D.C., I wanted to be involved in legislature and politics, to use my skills to benefit "we, the people." My English major bolstered my writing skills, my ability to critique texts, and my understanding of people different than myself. SGA gave me a platform to represent student-athletes. Working for President Craft taught me how to lead with both strength and compassion. The Cobber network even helped me make a decision on which law school to attend. Each of these Concordia experiences have brought me to today, going into my first year of law school at the University of Minnesota.
