Homeward Bound

Leaving my home for this one!

Leaving my home for this one!

This winter break has been great, wonderful, awesome, tropical, and merry. I love getting breaks from school but I am always ecstatic to get back to campus. I used to feel guilty for being so excited to leave home for campus, but with one look on social media, I can see dozens of other Cobbers expressing their excitement for driving back to Cobberville. The cool thing about it is that it’s not weird at all for me to see people excited to start another semester of school. Cobbers are special that way 🙂 Every time I see my friends from home, they always make fun of me for always bringing up Concordia in conversation and always being excited to go back after breaks. It is not that they don’t love their schools or like being there, but I truly get the sense that the Cobber love for Concordia is different…greater somehow. We’ve all found aspects of home in Concordia, so leaving our “home” to come back to school isn’t such a bad thing. For me, and for many others I’m sure, I’m not going back to school. I’m just leaving one home for another! Monday can’t come fast enough!

Hello, there! I’m Kelsey Rausch and I am an English Education major from Elk River, Minnesota. It is my hope that I will be able to do extraordinary things with my life and I think I chose the right college to help me make an impact on people’s lives. I have some serious Cobber pride and couldn’t be more in love with this amazing college! I love music in every way that it can be taken in, whether that be listening, collecting, watching, or performing. I’d like to think I have great taste in music and I love connecting with people over a shared interest in music. I’m always up for an adventure and trying new things. I’m (apparently) very awful at telling stories, so I have to have crazy adventures to talk about to make up for my lack of ability. I am always in search of good books to read and I am grateful for God, who has blessed me with so much.
