BREW Week at Concordia!

Posted on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013 by Kallie Eberling

At Concordia, BREW, or Becoming Responsibly Engaged in the World, is a big phrase. Professors seem to incorporate BREW into almost all of the courses at Concordia.

This week at Concordia, it is BREW Week! There are tons of fun activities going on throughout the week all around Concordia. On Monday, we had a key note speaker, Jessica Pettit who discussed sustainability and living well. Also on Monday their was a discussion about how Heifer International is empowering families to escape poverty. Tea was provided!

Today, there was a panel discussion about sustainable businesses and a local food sampling in the atrium! My inquiry class, Food in the World, worked the booth in the atrium and discussed sustainability and eating local food. At the booth, there was bread from Fargo, sausage from Hawley, MN, and cheese from a town south of Minneapolis.

As the rest of the week goes on, there will be exciting weeks events. Tomorrow there will be an Eco Expo and a speech titled, “Conversations that Count”. Thursday, their will be a documentary about a man’s journey to leave no journey eco footprint for a whole year! It sounds really interesting how this man avoided using toilet paper and electricity.

Lastly, on Friday, there will be do it yourself tutorials which sound really fun and different! You can learn how to make your own sustainable products!

  1. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can
    take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    Thanks

Hi! My name is Kallie Eberling. I’m excited to be starting my freshman year at Concordia! I currently haven’t decided on a major but I can’t wait to find out what I enjoy and want to do with my life.

I’m from the small town of Plentywood, Montana. It’s located about 10 minutes from Canada and 15 minutes from North Dakota. We only have one stoplight, but we are the biggest town in our county! In high school I was involved in speech, debate, cross-country, pep club, and FCCLA. I’m excited to get involved at Concordia, and I plan on checking out just about every possible club.

As an avid Harry Potter fan you may find me holding my wand and watching a Harry Potter marathon on the weekends. I also enjoy quilting, online shopping, puppies, baking, and the Sound of Music.

I’m eager to not only experience all that Concordia has to offer but also, to not have drive 3 hours to get to a mall!
