It Was A Pretty Great Sunday

Usually I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off on Sundays, but this time around I would say it was a pretty good day!

Having my Chapel Choir friends come back from tour was a great enough way to start my day, but what made it even better was being able to attend their home concert here on campus. They had a pretty amazing selection of music–they did Cloudburst by Eric Whitacre and In the Beginning by Aaron Copland to name their two bigger pieces. If you didn’t get a chance to attend the concert, I highly recommend

watching the stream here; it was such an amazing concert! Not only did they showcase their talent with music, but some of the choir members danced during one of their pieces, and you could tell they put a lot of practice into making sure it was an amazing show!

The second reason it was an amazing Sunday was because of my Homecoming meeting. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m lucky enough to be serving on the Homecoming committee again this year as the

Design Coordinator. Last night as a fun activity we had Allison Richards, a senior here at Concordia, come in and lead the committee in some laughter yoga. Laughter yoga is a form of yoga that’s focused

more on posture and poses, but laughing at the same time. It was a great way to loosen up for the rest of the meeting. Who

doesn’t love to laugh? We’re trying really hard to collaborate more as a group, so after meeting individually we asked everyone to go around and write down ideas and feedback they might have for other committees. It was a good way to get our brains working! Next week, we’re going to (hopefully) start thinking of logo ideas–we’ve already decided on a theme, but that’s still classified information! 🙂 It’s going to be a great year for this year’s Homecoming committee, I can already tell!

Hello! My name’s Jasmine Lara, but most people call me Jazzy.

If I miraculously stick on my current career path, when I graduate from Concordia I will have a major in Social Work and Spanish, along with a minor in Psychology. Before I came to Concordia, I called Litchfield, Minnesota my home.

I’m a first generation Cobber, and the first to go to college in my family in general! Needless to say, I’m pretty proud of myself ☺. Because of this, I’m not taking my time here at Concordia for granted. Currently I’m involved in Hall Council, Homecoming Committee, and Echo Band, along with working for Dining Services and Maurices in West Fargo.

In my spare time, I like to lounge around with my friends and explore the wonderful place we call Fargo-Moorhead. On weekends you’ll often find me with my friends, whether it’s hanging out in one of their rooms, or at Kroll’s diner chowing down on one of their awesome milkshakes.

Concordia has brought me many new opportunities, some that I have yet to even figure out. Until I figure them out though, I’m just going to enjoy my time here—in my opinion, there’s nothing better than being a Cobber!
