Concord University Reviews
Rating 3.39 out of 5 470 reviews
I can say that Concord is a 10/10 school with some of the most helpful staff that I’ve ever had. They are kind and courteous. Also, most of the professors that I’ve had are extremely reasonable and amazing.
Concord University has been a great start to furthering my education. The staff and campus is very welcoming and provides a great sense of belonging. I highly recommend Concord University to anybody looking to pursue a higher education. I really enjoy all the activities and campus life that Concord has to offer!
Concord is a fantastic school, with almost all amazing professors. I've taken classes in about five different departments, and have had great experiences everywhere. My only complaint would reside in the financial aid office, some workers aren't particularly helpful if you aren't familiar with the workings of College finances (as a freshman, it's very confusing to go through.)
With COVID-19, Concord gave students the ability (after closing initially and going online for the remainder of the very initial spring semester) to take the entire fall 2020 and spring 2021 semesters on Zoom. They were amazingly accommodating to any students who didn't feel safe returning to the classroom. Their online learning went fairly smoothly, with about as many kinks as to be expected. Internet is unreliable, but they handled unpredictability with grace.
This school has been a life changer. From the staff to the professors, everyone is so kind. The atmosphere is amazing and the campus is small. Within a couple weeks you become attached.
I have enjoyed doing online schooling so far. My academic advisor and the financial aid department have been very helpful. I am excited to continue my education and Concord is affordable.
I prefer to take classes in person, especially if the class is more difficult, but the classes that I took online were great. I felt the teachers did a great job handling the material and I didn’t feel overwhelmed with the assignments or readings for the class. The teacher stuck to the syllabus for the most part so it was easy to prepare in advance for the class if I wanted and always knew when assignments were due. Overall, a great experience.
I am a sophomore at Concord and have enjoyed my experience so far. The teachers are excellent and the campus is beautiful. There are many activities that go on throughout the school year.
It’s a smaller campus, so things are more personal and easier to obtain, such as meetings with professors, and one on one assistance. The only thing I would change is more options for virtual students. All the on campus activities seem great, but there’s not much for virtual students to do or take part in.
Due to corona, I had to take some of my classes online. This was new for the school so obviously it didn’t go smoothly, but all the teachers were still actively engaging with students.
Concord University has some of the best teachers in their program. They all really like their jobs and genuinely want their students to succeed.
I only took one class online and didn't really learn anything. It was pretty easy to pass, though. I'm not sure that very many online classes are offered anymore.
This school has cut a lot of really good programs. It used to be extraordinary, and now it is almost less-worth-going-to than a community college.
Athlete at Concord. It is a nice home setting college. Mid-size Univeristy with lots of stuff to do when not in he classroom or at practice. Would recommend.
Great school, good sports, teachers, nice views and dorms! Good overall experience. If you want a good college experience concord will do that for you
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.
I love this university. This school prepared me better than I could have ever imagined for my full-time job. The Business Department are excellent especially the Accounting professors. There were plenty of real world applications and the professors actually care about their student's success.
