On March 5-7, Concordia University Texas is hosting Concordia Crossing, the community celebration of all things CTX. On Saturday, March 6, we will host Be A Tornado Day: Concordia Crossing Edition.
Be A Tornado Day is a celebratory event for newly admitted students, where we welcome them to the CTX family. During Be A Tornado Day, you can commit to CTX, complete the financial aid process and more.
We invite you and your family to join us for the entire Concordia Crossing weekend. It's a great way to meet CTX faculty and students, tour the beautiful campus and see what life is truly like as a Concordia Tornado.
Here are five events that will provide you and your family with a great preview of Concordia University Texas.
1. Campus Worship
The Christian faith serves as the foundation of Concordia. As a university affiliated with The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) and rooted in Lutheran tradition, daily chapel is an important part of life at CTX. Students have the option to attend chapel every weekday during the fall and spring semesters.
Join us for campus worship to experience what a typical chapel service is like. You will hear the Word of God proclaimed and have the opportunity to praise God in song alongside the CTX community.
When: Friday, March 5, at 10 a.m. and Saturday, March 6, at 10 a.m.
Where: Chapel or livestream
2. IncubatorCTX Speaker Series
IncubatorCTX is an entrepreneurial hub on Concordia's campus that provides startups and early-stage businesses with important resources, including coworking space and mentorships.
The IncubatorCTX Speaker Series is a free event where professionals and industry experts offer insights into various topics.
For this webinar, Reina G. Wiatt will present "The Roadmap to Entrepreneurial Success," sharing tips on how to navigate bumps and potholes along the road to entrepreneurial success.

3. Preserve & Campus Tour
While you can tour the campus during Be A Tornado Day, there are other opportunities for you and your family to tour the Concordia Preserve.
The Concordia campus sits on 440 acres of beautiful land, 250 of which are part of a nature and wildlife preserve. You will wind around a tree-lined path and learn more about Concordia's commitment to stewarding the preserve.
Please note that the preserve tour requires about an hour of walking on unlevel paths at different elevations. If you opt to take a preserve tour, please bring comfortable walking shoes and water if you think you'll need some.
