A Celebration of Knowledge

Posted on Thursday, April 14th, 2016 by Kelsey Rausch

cossquestimageLet’s think back to high school. If a teacher asked you to do a huge project and then present it in front of all of your peers, teachers, and community members, you would have said, “heck no”. At Concordia, there is an entire day devoted to celebrating students’ hard work. Students work really hard all year long on research projects on topics ranging from chemistry to English, from history to communication studies. Nobody is forced to participate in Celebration of Student Scholarship, yet over a hundred students volunteer to put together these projects.  Cobbers are proud of their scholarship and the Celebration of Student Scholarship is a great opportunity for students to show off all their hard work (and maybe score some brownie points with their professors). My freshman year, it was one of the first times that Concordia held this event. It had such a great turnout that Concordia decided that they should cancel class for the Celebration of Student Scholarship so everyone would be free to attend all of the important, ground breaking research projects that all of our peers have been working on. Just this year, three out of my four roommates participated in COSS and they all said it was one of the more rewarding things they have done in college. 🙂

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.
