Student Experience

Kellan H. (C'28) from the Xiamen team was elated to finally compete in person at the WSC after several cancellations due to the pandemic.

"I'm especially proud of how our team worked hard to improve between the Regional and Global Rounds. Through this program, I have learned study skills and teamwork."—Kellan H.

Warren H. (C'28) allocated 30 minutes daily for WSC preparation and conducted extensive research, earning him first place in science and technology.

"Practice is the key to excelling in the WSC, whether it's studying the curriculum or practicing debate."—Warren H.

The team, Kellan H., Warren H., and Ruoshan S., met weekly with Kellan's older brother, Joshua Elijah H., a Concordia alumnus, to hone their debate skills, resulting in a first-place finish in the debate category.

"It's rewarding to mentor the younger classes and see their achievements."—Joshua H. (C'22)


The London team had to coordinate remotely but managed to distribute the workload efficiently.

“I enjoyed meeting scholars from diverse backgrounds in London. We balanced study time and fun effectively.”—Soomin Y. (C'27)

Congratulations again to all participating students! You have made Concordia shine, and we look forward to your future accomplishments!
