For most people, today is a day to dress up in weird, unusual, crazy, or scary costumes and go out to get a sugar rush. But here at Concordia, today is a day to remember the day that Martin Luther nailed the 95 thesis on the door of the Catholic church. For most, today is Halloween. For people here at Concordia, today is Reformation Day. more “Happy Reformation!”
You haven’t lived in Wisconsin until you’ve been able to go to a Badger game. This weekend, I was able to go to a game with three of my best friends from Concordia. We decided to drive over on Friday night and stay the night at my house.
When we all leisurely woke up on Saturday morning, we had a big brunch, visited the animal shelter to pet some adorable cats, and took a walk in the neighborhood. Afterward, we enjoyed some delicious tater tot casserole, and got ready to head out for the big game. more “Go Badgers!”
Concordia Wisconsin is offering the women on campus a new sport this year, and it’s honestly one that I did not know was an organized collegiate sport. The Women’s Field Hockey team started up just this year with most of the athletes coming from other sports on campus such as lacrosse or softball. more “Dominating through Defense”
There have been some interesting hall programs in my time here. As a freshman my RA had a cheese and root beer sampling night. It was honestly not the greatest food combinations, but it was still a lot of fun. As a sophomore I was able to help my friend put on a Pie The RA night, which was very messy. But the last two years there seems to be more All-Hall Programs, which is cool! more “Final CropTober Fest”
Coming into college, I was dreading having to take religion courses while I was at Concordia. I came from a public high school, and other than my Catholic faith formation classes that I took on Wednesday nights at my church, I was not used to learning about faith in a lecture-form. I was horrified at the thought of having to go to a Bible and Christian Faith class as well. The whole idea of being with classmates who might have a total upper-hand from me right from the start made me anxious. more “Faith & Culture”
So hopefully this one isn’t too sappy. I really dislike that kind of stuff. But, I would be lying if I didn’t say that I had a great time at the Woman’s Soccer game against Edgewood. My girlfriend Hannah is on the team, and me and some friends that were visiting for the day went and watched. While the Falcons did not win, it was still a lot of fun! At halftime they had the parents join their soccer star kids, walking onto the field. It was really neat. more “Finally Cheering”
