Concord University Reviews

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.

Concord university not only offers a wide variety of up to date majors, wide branch selection and qualified professors but it also provides the student with a high quality residence experience that makes the student want to be there constantly; in addition, the athletic department highly focuses on each sport depending on the respective season to ensure that each sport is having an equal amount of support.
And for non-student athletes the SGA introduces a long list of activities that students will not only enjoy but learn something from them.
Concord professors back when I graduated in 2006 we’re not very accommodating to people who are different. Being told I shouldn’t be in college with a disability is horrible.

Some professors decide they don’t like you and then decide no matter what you do they will fail you.

I fear for any student that has special needs here. I saw they have an Autism program. Please parents consider elsewhere for your students. Some of the same crappy professors I had back then are still there.

I did have some great professors and role models but they don’t want to stand up for you due to bullying.
