CUW Life

"Concordia University Wisconsin is a Lutheran higher education community committed to helping students develop in mind, body, and spirit for service to Christ in the Church and the World."

Christian Life at CUW





Living a full Christian life is about more than worship. At CUW you can see and feel the Christian emphasis from how our professors teach in the classroom to how our athletes play on the field.

Perhaps most important, what makes Concordia University Wisconsin a Christian university isn't that we're perfect people, but that we're forgiven people who gather together in Christ.

The strength of a Christian community rests on an awareness that people need one another and reach out to one another for support and understanding.

For instance, this year's Lakeside Luau / Paint Rave:

"This is what happens when you mix a #PaintRave with a #selfie. Thanks for sharing everyone!" #LakesideLuau #CUW
