Cobber Ring

Posted on Wednesday, September 18th, 2013 by

It’s that time of year again folks: Cobber Ring Week. I didn’t understand all of the glitz and glam of this famous ring until I arrived on campus, so I will try to explain its glory to those of you who have not heard the story.

In high school, you can purchase a ring. In my class, no one really did, but it is popular at some schools around the country. The same applies to Concordia. When you are a junior, in the fall, you can purchase a ring that has the Concordia C on it and your graduating year on the face all complete with a band of gold. Inside, your name is engraved. Why spend so much money on this ring? And in perspective, is it really that much money?

The Cobber ring is a symbol of Cobber pride. It is said that it is the second most purchased ring behind the air force ring. People tell stories of getting jobs on the spot from other Alumni just for wearing their Cobber ring. It is a lifetime long commitment to a love for Concordia and the Cobber community.

So, despite the cost, I bought the ring. and am pretty excited about.

Will this ring be replaced? I think so.

Soon to be my Cobber Ring finger.

I may have the most generic Scandinavian name but I like to think I’m far from ordinary.

For 20 years of my life, I have rocked the suburbs like Jon Bon Jovi did, except that he was talented (as Ben Folds would say). In high school, I was involved in speech, debate, concert band, marching band, and volunteer work. To this day, I enjoy tossing the Frisbee disc with friends, reading an absurd amount of books, writing poetry and listening excessively to every genre of music excluding country.

At Concordia, I play the flute in the Symphonic Band, play ultimate frisbee, am an orientation leader, am a leader in science academy, work for the admissions office, do biology research, and am working to bring an organization to campus called Girls In Real Life which is meant to improve the self esteem of women everywhere. I also enjoy volunteering at Sanford hospital on the weekends. My majors are biology and history with a minor in chemistry and I will be graduating in 2015. I hope to join the peace corps after college and then attend graduate school for public health and possibly law.

In the future and in the present, my main goal is to make a difference in the world. I believe people are inherently good and I search for the upside in every situation. People have described me as a ray of sunshine, but I’d just say I am an opportunist who believes in love and lifelong happiness.
