The Concordian has served as Concordia College’s student-run newspaper since its founding in 1920. For the last 90 years, the paper has reported on matters concerning Concordia students, both regarding campus and otherwise. The purpose of the paper is to affirm the mission of the college by cultivating thoughtful and informed students, faculty and staff through the awareness and discussion of college, local, national and world affairs.

The Concordian is distributed on Wednesdays during the academic year, except during examination periods and vacations. The newspaper has a staff of about 25, representing all years on campus. The paper accepts article submissions from non-staff writers, as well.  Opinions expressed by writers for The Concordian do not necessarily reflect those of Concordia’s student body, faculty, staff or administration.

The Concordian welcomes comments and suggestions. Any submissions, requests for corrections, or questions regarding the paper should be directed to concord@cord.edu.
