    For many students—including me—Concordia is a second home, and the support we receive from the donors is greatly appreciated. CUAA has brought many important role models into my life that have certainly impacted the way I view the world and the way I live my life. The family-like atmosphere and many opportunities to serve at Concordia allow us to do just that.
