Special celebrations are happening this week at Concordia University Ann Arbor.


CUAA Student Events presents Spirit Week 2020! A week dedicated to celebrating Cardinal pride and the Concordia spirit, the week is filled with theme-days and events to safely bring students together.

Spirit Week is a pivot to what would have been a traditional Homecoming week celebration. The alumni and athletics department are working together to secure a new Homecoming date for spring 2021, once Concordia is able to begin welcoming visitors back to campus.

“The campus does a wonderful job of hosting events that you’ve always wanted to participate in but maybe wouldn’t have had the chance to do on your own, like tie-dying or carving pumpkins,” said junior Hannah Sickmiller (’22). “Spirit Week is a budget friendly way to hang out with friends while taking pride in our school.”
