Homecoming Court

During the Homecoming football game, you will find out who are Concordia’s Homecoming King and Queen! Emails are sent to faculty and staff across campus, asking them to nominate some of their outstanding students. After those are received, a collective list of all nominations is compiled, and everyone gets a chance to vote to identify the top 5 contestants. Final votes will then be taken to identify the two winners! Voting will take place in Luther, near the Library staircase, from Oct. 24th to Nov. 4th.

Freddy Fest!

Food? Lawn games? Free t-shirts? What more could you want?! Stop by Regent’s Courtyard to hear music from The Talon, Concordia’s Radio station, eat lunch, play some games, and receive some swag for the game! This event is sponsored by SGA, CAB, and Alumni and Parent Association. It will take place from 11am – 2pm. There is no cost, but lunch requires a meal swipe.
