Choosing Concordia

Cristian wanted to attend a smaller school where he could continue his soccer career and Concordia Wisconsin offered just that. The academic programs, specifically Justice & Public Policy was also a big draw to Cristian, making Concordia a fit for him in being a school he could really thrive at.


Cristian has a great ability to score goals so it should come as little surprise that his favorite player is a great striker in Robert Lewandowski. As Christian says, Lewandowski has great speed, strength and finishing ability that allows him to be one of the best in the world. Scoring goals is one of the things Cristian most enjoys about the game.

“I enjoy the thrill of scoring goals. It’s a feeling that never gets old. I love winning and celebrating with the team, there is no other feeling in the world like seeing the team get hyped up after we score.”

Life at CUW

With the hectic schedule being a student-athlete can provide, Cristian likes to find time to relax in his dorm room when possible. Cristian likes to throw some music on, play some FIFA and just relax between classes or at night. In the classroom, Cristian’s favorite class is Intro to Law with Dr. Harris. It is a class that has introduced him to his major and having Dr. Harris, a very funny and enjoyable professor has been a big plus in the early stages of his major.
