I’ll never forget my first days as a Concordia student. Having been very active in the online discussions with other future Cobbers, I was very excited to begin my time as a student. For me, there was the general anticipation of relocating from the Sunny South to the Upper Middle West, along with a very loud and proud giddiness to attend a school in the Great North with a corncob mascot. It certainly seemed exotic at my small Tennessee high school (Although, it is important to note that there is a Concordia freshman from my school in Tennessee–small world!)
But here I am, four years later. So much has changed, yet much is the same. I have taken many more classes, written many more papers, eaten many more DS meals.
My Concordia journey was nothing like I anticipated. Despite the differences — perhaps because of the differences — it has been the most important experience of my life. Here’s to a fun-filled, final, finals week!
