"...but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31
Happy New Year!

Did you make any New Year resolutions or refocus your goals and priorities? When we put our hope in the Lord, He will renew our strength. Last month, more than 500 students finished their degree from CUW and joined the rest of our prestigious alumni. As our newly graduated alumni are beginning their new careers or looking to advance their careers, we can be a resource for them and to each other. Please review the opportunities below to celebrate our alumni, to reconnect with each other, to share your story, and to refer future Concordians.

Wishing you God’s guidance and blessings for 2019,
