There are grounds crews devoted to making the campus something to marvel at, and they work daily to achieve that goal. Whether it’s mowing lawns and trimming bushes in the warm seasons or shoveling sidewalks and removing ice patches in the winter, they are all important facets of what makes Concordia such a great campus. It takes a lot of beauty to convince students to spend four or more years in northern Minnesota. The facilities at Concordia are acceptable and satisfactory for most students, but most are not the best of the best.
Students have access to a decent indoor gymnasium, a weight room, and a balcony of cardio exercise equipment. These are utilized often, especially during the winter months. Unfortunately, there is no indoor turf field, so summer sports players have difficulty keeping fit or staying at an optimum performance level for a few months. The library on campus is satisfactory for the needs of college students. It has computers, study rooms, and many individual study desks. However, the building itself is rapidly aging, and it will need refurbishing, if not complete renewal, in the future. Concordia is very active in renewing buildings. A new campus center was constructed recently, and plans for new business and science buildings are progressing. There is always something for Concordia students to do, be it studying or other activities.
