This week (Jan. 27—Feb. 2) marks National Lutheran Schools Week in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, providing the network of over 2,000 LCMS preschools, elementary schools and high schools with the public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work in Lutheran schools.

Lutheran schools are incubators for faithful witness of God’s love through Christ by teachers and students alike. Here at CUAA, we’re grateful for the Kingdom work of our Lutheran elementary and high schools and all of the amazing students they nurture before their arrival on our campus.

This year, for National Lutheran Schools Week, Concordia is taking a moment to highlight just a few of our current CUAA students who are alumni of Midwest Lutheran high schools in order to show some of the proud products of our feeder schools.

Here are just a few reasons Peter Morrison (’21) loves Concordia and why he encourages his Concordia Lutheran High School classmates to consider CUAA for their college education.

Meet Peter Morrison.

Why did you choose Concordia University Ann Arbor?

The biggest reason I chose to attend Concordia is the people. Every time I would visit Concordia I would have welcoming encounters with people who really cared about myself as a person.

Why should someone from Concordia Lutheran High School choose CUAA?

Someone from my high school should consider CUAA because the community is one that cultivates growth both spiritually and personally. The people at Concordia will care about you and will be there for you throughout the process to help you succeed.

What is one thing Lutheran High students would be surprised to learn about CUAA?

CUAA has a lot of cool study abroad opportunities.

Name one thing you have to try when you become a CUAA Cardinal:

I would definitely suggest a midnight run to Dom’s Donuts.

What has been your favorite experience as a Concordia student thus far?

My favorite experience as a Concordia student is getting to know all my professors by name and building relationships with them.
