Concordia Crossing

Pre-registration is now closed, but please feel free to walk-in and register at Concordia Crossing!

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!
