Concordia University Ann Arbor Update2 min read

Committed to Student Preparation

During the summer months the campus of Concordia University Ann Arbor (CUAA) transforms from a bustling student body scurrying between classes to a frantic period of summer camps, construction projects, and facilities updates.


The historic old dilapidated barn on the corner of Geddes Road and Earhart Road has been renovated to a beautiful red and white metal-sided barn now serving as a billboard for university identification as well as the storage space for lawn equipment and miscellaneous things that belong in a barn. The CUAA name appears on two roof sides while a large Cardinal mascot image faces the new football field to the east.

The new Pro-Grass synthetic football field (pictured in featured image), completed in July, will now host all CUAA Cardinal home football games as well as soccer matches for the men’s and women’s soccer programs. The first football game was held September 6, 2014 against Trinity International University. A formal dedication of the field was held prior to the game.

As reported in previous editions of this communication two major projects on the campus continue in the planning and fundraising phases. A significant remodeling and expansion of the Kreft Center for the Arts is being planned and fundraising to match another donor gift from Dr. and Mrs. Kreft is underway.

A very significant expansion of our gymnasium to a much larger field house is also being planned. This expansion will more than double the available building space and include a locker room, a weight room and exercise facility for athletes and students, a second basketball floor (to allow intermural and athletic practices), as well as more classrooms and office space. The classrooms will assist in lessening the growing congestion of classroom spaces as the enrollment grows. We will also begin a new academic program in Athletic Training as an undergraduate major, with the idea that it can grow to a master’s program in this field.

Please keep the university in your thoughts and prayers. We are committed to preparing students for service to Christ in the church and the world. Stop in for a visit anytime.
