Isouma Shine (’24)

Major: Elementary Education

Transferred from: University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

What made you want to transfer to Concordia?

I was drawn to Concordia because of its commitment to integrating Christian values into the learning experience. Additionally, the flexibility of courses at Concordia allows me to balance my studies with work and other commitments, providing well-rounded educational experience that fits my lifestyle.

Based on your experience, what advice or encouragement would you give to potential transfer students?

For someone hesitant about transferring to Concordia or any new institution, I would encourage them to focus on the opportunities for growth not only academically but also spiritually. Concordia’s commitment to fostering a community rooted in Christian values provides a supportive environment for both personal and academic development. Embrace the journey of pursuing Jesus alongside your academic pursuits, and you’ll find a fulfilling experience that extends beyond the classroom. Trust in yourself, lean on your faith, and take advantage of all the resources the university has to offer.

What are your goals for graduation—and how do you feel Concordia has helped you prepare?

My goals after graduation are to pursue an advanced degree in education while continuing to pursue a career in education. Concordia has equipped me with the knowledge and skills needed to make a meaningful difference in the lives of my future students.
