A Thank You From Our Students

One of the defining characteristics of a Concordia-Chicago education is learning from and interacting with a highly-qualified, dedicated and caring faculty and staff. In the wake of COVID-19, CUC worked diligently to continue offering the same individualized attention in a virtual environment and our students noticed.

Faculty and staff were recently surprised by an unexpected, heart-felt thank you video initiated and produced by our students themselves. We’re proud to offer an experience that inspires our students to continue growing and learning as they come to fulfill their vocations.

But don’t take our word for it, see for yourself…
