The Office of Student Life at Concordia University Wisconsin is busy preparing for a safe and uncommon (and fun!) return to campus this fall.

While things may look a little different on campus due to careful measures implemented to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, you can still expect a positive and meaningful experience. Your Concordia education will be robust without compromise.

Whether you’re moving in to one of the residence halls, or commuting for classes, we are counting down the days until we see you and welcome you “home.”

To help you settle in, the student life team, led by Dr. Steven Taylor, vice president, prepared a series of videos to introduce you to the people with whom you will interact on a daily basis and the extra measures that were added to help you stay safe.
