Last year at this time, Concordia's freshmen were seniors in high school. They were visiting campuses, applying to schools, and journeying through their college search process.

Why should you apply to CUAA?

Now they are in their first semester at Concordia University Ann Arbor. Here’s what these college freshmen have to say when asked, “Why should students apply to CUAA?”

ClaudiaClaudia Grepke (’25)

Major: Nursing

“Concordia is a great place to apply if you’re looking for a family atmosphere! The small campus allows for a tight knit community that starts to feel like home fast. It was very easy for me to get plugged in here at Conco and I have already met so many great people in my short time here. I’m so glad I applied!”

JesusJesús Pulido (’25)

Major: Exercise Science

“I think students should apply because it really is a welcoming and fun community. Everywhere you go, you get to see friends and make friends. And there are many things to do on campus and in the Ann Arbor area – you’ll never get bored!”

Major: Family Life Ministry

“Students should apply to CUAA because of the close campus proximity to all of the classes and because of the one-on-on connections with professors. Going along with that, many professors integrate faith into their classes.”

NyaNya Martinez (’25)

Major: Secondary Education

“Being an out of state kid, it was super intimidating to move across the country for school, but being at Concordia has been nothing but welcoming. The family environment and being in community with so many believers has been the best part of my experience thus far! Concordia was the best choice I could have made for myself and my future.”

Grace Hedtke (’25)

Major: Rehabilitation Science

“This is a campus that feels so much like home. The professors put in a great amount of time and effort to help you achieve your long term and short term goals. Being here at CUAA has allowed me to grow in so many ways including academically, physically, and most importantly, spiritually.”
