Alumni Newsletter | July 2015

We have been blessed with beautiful weather this past week that it makes it feel like the tropical look of the Concordia gazebo photo, taken by alumna Jennifer Behnke. We hope you are having an enjoyable summer with family and friends and taking time to recharge. Activity is much different on campus during the summer as most students take a break from their studies. However, the campus stays busy with many of young students attending various camps and graduate students attending classes.


Within less than a month we will be busy welcoming new freshmen and undergraduate students to campus, however summer is not over! Check out the information below about ways you can volunteer or attend the free Lake Moon Festival, along with other ways to be involved with the CUW community.


As you read through this edition and you have an idea or suggestion you want to share, please feel free to email me at  I look forward to continuing to serve you.
