How has college transformed you?
College is a very exciting time where you will not only have tremendous personal growth but also build personal relationships that will last a life-time. I loved being able to grow closer to God while getting a great education.
What advice would you give to prospective students?
My advice to prospective students would be to do your research on all of the colleges that interest you. Make a list of all the important things you want out of a university and make sure you ask your Admissions Counselor lots of questions. I would also recommend taking a tour of the campus!
How would you describe the atmosphere of Orange County, California?
I grew up in Orange County and love it here. Concordia is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Orange County. Extremely close to the beach, mountains and desert! There is so much to do in this area with endless possibilities of fun.
