The professor that impacted me the most was Dr. Meissner (biology/environmental science). However, since all the professors at CTX are caring and encouraging, it is hard to pick just one.

Sophomore, Mathematics

My hometown is Austin, Texas.
The highlight of my time at CTX (so far) was definitely seeing The Nativity Story and The Passion of the Christ. Not only were the movies about Jesus, but it was almost Christmas break when the films were shown in Building A.
I think CTX is unique because it is Christ Centered. CTX has a good academic curriculum.
The professor that impacted me the most was Dr. Meissner (biology/environmental science) however, since all the professors at CTX are caring and encouraging, it is hard to pick just one.
I advise all incoming Mathematics Majors to have a a passion for mathematics. Never give up when times seem challenging. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and make a few mistakes. Do your best, because anything worth having is worth working for.
Concordia has developed me into a Christian Leader with Chapel, Bible/religion courses, and some professors tying scripture within the lesson; Concordia has inspired me to mature in my relationship with my Risen Savior Jesus Christ. After going through the transition of being a high school senior to a freshman at a University, CTX helped me calm my nerves with the Life & Leadership class and their theme for the 2008-2009 school year, “A New Creation.” This helped me to remember, once I am born a believer, I am born to be an achiever. Concordia has motivated me to carry out their mission. Through the power of the Holy Spirit I will help develop and strengthen Christian Leaders. Giving glory to the Almighty God.
My favorite place to study is the library, it is probably my favorite place to go on campus.
My favorite meal in the cafeteria is the grilled chicken sandwich. It is good.
