The staff is very personable. They are always there for the student first. Very helpful and informative. The campus can be kind of confusing between buildings looking somewhat similar. However, the staff has recently provided several ways to improve the direction of where to go for classes. Most professors are extremely caring and understanding. They work with the students inside and out of the university. The learning process is very well thought out and re-looked at many times with many eyes to make sure it is the best possible scenario for the students.

I've been to Concord several times for the Upward Bound program, a visit, and I am also going there with my club in high school known as FBLA. The cafeteria has just been remodeled and looks amazing. I also love the convenience of where everything is on campus. Once you get used to walking around everywhere in college, you really realize that Concord is a smaller campus and there isn't as much walking as anticipated.
Concord University is the best place to socialize and experience a change like never before. I feel that many students will learn many things living on campus and experience true relationships with professors, coaches, trainers, and other students. I wouldn’t change a thing about Concord University.
