From a powerful new "Live Uncommon" brand launch and beautiful snapshots of our campus to the significant milestones and achievements of our students, faculty, and staff, Concordia has had a lot to share in 2018.

Concordia’s Strategic Communications team has utilized social media to keep students, alumni, family, and friends in the loop, and you, our CUAA community of social influencers, have in turn helped advance the Concordia mission in powerful ways by sharing our stories with your own friends, family, and acquaintances.

You made these moments possible. Here are the Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter posts that grabbed your attention the most in 2018. Check them out, and while you’re at it (you know how it goes) give us a follow!


1) Live Uncommon

Concordia’s new “Live Uncommon” brand platform captures the powerful message that CUAA represents through our diverse student and faculty bodies engaging in unique and extraordinary Christ-centered service to the world. The beautiful video we put up earlier this year on our FB page portrays this perfectly.

If you haven’t already, watch it here!

2) School of Nursing

Followers of Ann Arbor’s Facebook rightfully ‘liked’ and ‘loved’ our promotional video for our increasingly successful School of Nursing. This year, we celebrated our first class of nursing school graduates, and we can’t wait to see the programs continue to grow.

2) The Cardinals Advance

CUAA is a very cozy place in the winter time. All the more reason for students to stick around to take Winterim courses. Concordia’s greeting sign is shown in this lovely Insta post.  Commenter @lorde_lynch describes it best: “That’s art (pallet emoji)”. Twice in a row! The Concordia University Ann Arbor football team again secured a spot in the NAIA Football Championship Series First Round.

See on Instagram the moment school history was again made.
