Choosing Concordia

What first attracted Michael to the Concordia Falcons was the competitiveness of the soccer program and the quality education.  After he learned about the variety of majors available, he knew that he would soon find his fit and receive a solid education for whichever path he chose.

ABOUT MICHAEL

Michael’s favorite soccer player is the attacking midfielder for the Arsenal, Mesut Ozil. Watching the suspense and intensity of the 2014 World Cup was one of his best soccer experiences.  Yet, what Michael enjoys most about playing soccer is not necessarily the adrenaline rush, but rather the chance to bond with his fellow teammates and challenge himself to continuously improve his field skills.

Life at CUW

One of Michael’s favorite professors here at CUW is Dr. Walz (political science) because of the care and concern he displays for each of his students.  Currently the highlight of Michael’s college experience is when he and all of the other freshman sang together before the athletes at training camp.  When Michael is not playing soccer, he enjoys relaxing in the peaceful atmosphere of the Rincker Library or outside by the bluff.
