The Concordia Experience has begun for you and your student, and we are so glad you’re here! We know you've worked hard to support your student becoming an Eagle.

There are many ways for you to stay connected, be involved, and help your student navigate college life. We're here to walk alongside you, all in support of your student. Whatever your needs or interests are, we hope you find what you're looking for, but if you don't please reach out and ask!
