Greetings CUW Alumnus/a,

Some are just starting graduate programs and others will be finishing up their graduate or professional degree. Rest assured, once you graduate, your Alma mater is still here to serve you.  Whether you want a new job, want to earn your graduate degree or want to network with other alumni or just have some fun with your family, the Concordia University Alumni Association is here to assist you. Please review the information in this newsletter as to what areas of service or activities would be of interest to you.  
Please feel free to contact me with any ideas or questions you might have for us to better serve you. If you are going to be in the area, please stop by to chat.

Wishing us all God's guidance and blessings,

Featured Alumna
Celeste Cuffie isn't your traditional Concordia student. Married at 18, Cuffie began her work life early, working in the medical field as a CNA for a hospice unit. When the job eventually became too emotionally taxing, Cuffie decided to switch gears and go into banking.

The career switch led her to pursue a degree in business. Cuffie received her Bachelor of Arts in Management and Communications in 2007 and an MBA in Finance and Management in 2012, through Concordia University Wisconsin's adult and continuing education programs.
