CHOOSING CONCORDIA

When Jonathan visited CUW, he knew it was different from other universities.  It offered the programs to equip him vocationally for seminary and the opportunity to play soccer.  He was impressed with the great tradition carried by the Falcons and the hard work passed down from player to player.

“I choose Concordia because I felt it was the right place the moment I stepped on campus.”

love for soccer

Tim Howard of the Colorado Rapids has always been Jonathan’s role model because he firmly leads the team and never gives up.  Through all of the excitement, competition, and challenge of soccer, what Jonathan most enjoys is the fellowship together with friends and teammates as they play this worldwide game.

life at cuw

When Jonathan walks into Dr. Paavola’s class for New Testament, the coffee is always brewing.  That and Dr. Paavola’s ability to help student effectively understand the material make him Jonathan’s favorite professor.  The place he spends most of his down-time is the Nest because of the opportunity for many people to sit together and watch a game.
