"These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full."
-- John 15:11
Dear Concordia Alumna/us,
Summer is now in full swing and we hope that you are enjoying each and every fleeting moment. There certainly seems to be something to the saying that as you get older, the summers go faster. All of us at CUAA wish you joy in all you do and experience in the coming months. Take a moment to pause and feel the moment through all of your senses. Listen to singing birds or playing children; smell the spicy barbecue or sweet, summer blooms; feel the warmth of the sun or the cool water in the pool; taste the juicy, summer fruit or grilled burgers and hot dogs; see summer's beautiful foliage or a bright, crackling campfire. Feel the joy of the Lord, and thank Him for providing you with all of your experiences. CUAA has some summer activities that you are invited to participate in and attend. Please take a look below and, as always, let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you at one of our activities. Until then, find the joy in every remaining moment of summer!

CUWAA: Two Campuses - One Uncommon Thread

So happy together!  Six years ago, Concordia University Ann Arbor and Concordia University Wisconsin officially joined together to become one university with two campuses.  CUAA will always be the Cardinals and CUW the Falcons, but we can support and uplift each other. We share in the same vision and mission of being a Lutheran higher education community committed to helping students develop in mind, body, and spirit for service to Christ in the Church and the world.

River Sounds already being planned for next year

No, that's not a picture from the feeding of loaves and fishes; it's from the recent  outdoor performance by the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra on campus! There was such a tremendous turnout for River Sounds in the Key of A2, that preparations have already begun for a return performance on campus next summer. Thanks to all who came. About 1,200 people brought their blankets and chairs for this first-time concert. To read more, click here.
