'Chronicle' Neglected Concordia University Texas

RECEIVED Wed., Aug. 29, 2012

Dear Editor,
    As an avid reader of the Chronicle, I was excited to pick up and read the Back to School edition featuring Chronicle interns and their reports from the various campuses [“Au Revoir, Les Enterns,” Aug. 24]. Much to my surprise, there was no report from Concordia University Texas. Concordia has a current enrollment of more than 2,500 students throughout the state … it has grown in its traditional enrollment by more than 400 students since its move to West Austin … the baseball team went to the Division III national tournament this spring … and this summer saw its first MBA graduating class. While we may have moved from the I-35 corridor, we are still an important part of Austin, graduating more and more students who are serving this region. I fail to understand why the Chronicle would have forgotten about an institution of higher education that has been a part of the city since 1926. If people haven’t yet noticed Concordia University Texas, it’s only because they aren’t paying attention.
