Student Media

The Concordian is the official weekly student newspaper. Employing nearly 30 students on its production, news and editorial staff, The Concordian covers campus issues and events, highlights regional and national news, and invites students to submit articles for publication.

Two anthologies of work by students are published annually, with sponsorship from the English department. AfterWork literary magazine is composed of creative writing, ranging from short stories to poetry, and visual art, including drawings and photography. New Voices is a collection of nonfiction writing that is academic in nature. The contents of both collections are selected for publication from submitted material by an editorial board.

Concordia’s Beat is a student-produced CD of Concordia College. The purpose of this organization is to provide Concordia students with the opportunity to produce a professional-level CD that highlights diverse and original musical talent found on campus. Students involved with this project experience the process of recording, designing, promoting and producing an original product, and work to further promote community on campus through the medium of music.

The program is produced weekly in the television studio and is aired on the campus cable system and off campus on Moorhead, Fargo and West Fargo local cable stations.
