Students will learn all the need to know information about their transition from being an undergraduate student to a professional and Alumni of Concordia University Chicago. 

Interchange: Connecting your Interests, Values and Strengths to Choose a Major 

Many students begin college without declaring a major. We love this! At this program students will explore their strengths, interests, values and vocation to begin the process of declaring a major. After this program, you may not know exactly what you want to major in, but you will gain tools and resources to critically reflect and explore all the options possible to find your path to success.  

Exploring the Scenic Route: A Guide to Experiential Learning

This program is set-up as a fair for Sophomores and Juniors where they will have the opportunity to explore their options for off-campus study, service learning, and also learn about the process for internships.

Academic Itinerary 

This program is intended for all incoming First Year Students and will be run through Blackboard. There is a series of videos that you will watch, where you will learn about the variety of campus resources at Concordia. You will also get an in-depth guide to the world of Academic Advising. After you have completed the videos, you will take a quiz, and then set up your first Mile Marker- which is your Freshman year appointment. Completing this assignment and your freshman appointment will earn you credit for your COL 1995- Vocation and College Success course.
