Get to know Coordinator of Student Activities and Orientation Sarah Deheck!

She works hard to bring “the fun” for Concordia students. As Coordinator of Student Activities, Sarah Deheck oversees Concordia’s Campus Activities Board (CAB), which is the group responsible for such gems as Welcome Back Weekend, Late Night Bingo, Senior Week, and more. During her time as a CUW employee, she’s brought big-name acts, like Charlie Berens, to Concordia for the entertainment of students, and never misses a beat when it comes to the planning and execution of events.

Sarah also plays a role in the New Student Experience of Concordia’s incoming students. The program is designed to ensure that our newest community members feel welcomed and know how to navigate college life.
