For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
Summer is upon us now and the campus is a little quieter. There is still some activity but most students are on break. This past May we had our class of 1969 back on campus to celebrate their 50 th reunion, while the class of 2019 is just beginning their first year as alumni. Each season of our lives holds special meaning and purpose. As Concordians, we have a strong foundation to guide us in each of our seasons of life. We can come together to celebrate and remember those years long ago or just a couple of years past.

Listed below are several opportunities for you to connect over the summer with other Concordians socially, as well as professionally. There are other opportunities to encourage future Concordians and stories of celebrations, including the dedication of our newest academic building. Thank you for taking the time to review the information below and share it with your classmates.

As always, please let me know if there is a way I can serve you or if you have any suggestions for alumni programs or activities. If you are in the area and want a campus tour, email me. Enjoy your summer with family and friends. 


Serving Him and you,

Uncommon graduates
What are the odds? Two CUW grads became friends and roommates during their four years here, but little did they know that their parents--all CUW alumni--had been college friends as well. Kerri (’89) and Paul (’90) Gnan and Val (’87) and Mark (’87) Moran lost touch after graduation. Their daughters, Emily and Bekah, brought the group back together.
