Concordia Crossing 2018 will include both 25 and 50 year reunions! It will also host the Celebr'80s event.

Please join us for Concordia Crossing, our university's annual community celebration! With specialized programming for alumni, clergy, families, friends, and current and prospective students, this event is an opportunity to celebrate all things Concordia. Our long and varied history - though filled with different mascots, locations, and generations - is one of faithful commitment to education, service, and God.

We can't wait to see you there!
