On behalf of Concordia Student Leadership, welcome to Concordia University Irvine! We are so excited to serve you over the course of the school year. Every year, the Associated Students of Concordia University Irvine select a theme verse as a way to showcase the hopes of the University. For the 2021-2022 academic year, the theme is Something New from Isaiah 43:18-19, which reads, “Do not remember the former things and do not dwell on times past. Look! I am about to do something new! It is now springing up; do you not recognize it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.” This verse serves as a reminder that Christ is at work in our lives whether we see it or not. While life changes, we are called to trust in the Lord’s plan and be open to the new things that Christ is doing in our lives. It is our prayer that this year be one where you can grow and embrace the path that God has planned for your life.
The ASCUI Team and I encourage all students to get involved at Concordia. Concordia University provides many opportunities to get integrated into college life, whether it is in ministry, music, clubs, theatre, leadership, athletics, or many other activities. If you, as a returning or new student, have any questions, please stop by the Center for Student Leadership & Development and a fellow student will be more than happy to assist you.
