In the past five years, the twin cities of Fargo, N.D., and Moorhead, Minn., have become one of the hottest young boomtowns in America. Money magazine named Fargo-Moorhead one of its top 10 cities in which to start a business or get a job, and the Los Angeles Times described the "other" twin cities as improbably stylish, worldly, even luxurious.
Like Concordia itself, Fargo-Moorhead is a friendly, safe community with a young, exciting arts and entertainment scene. We have museums and galleries, historic movie theaters and playhouses, tons of restaurants, clubs and bars, symphonies and operas, sports teams, family-friendly outdoor festivals and plenty of shopping.
There are nearly 30,000 college students in Fargo-Moorhead, and they know how to have fun. They love to hang out in vibrant downtown Fargo, go swing dancing at the Avalon Ballroom and go for long runs along the scenic Red River.
Fargo-Moorhead is the largest metropolitan area between Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn., and Spokane, Wash., and The Wall Street Journal calls it an oasis of prosperity. That economic energy means great jobs for Concordia graduates and great internships for Concordia students.
But the best way to understand the excitement and beauty of Fargo-Moorhead and Concordia College is to come and see for yourself.
