I love Concordia! Concordia has an extremely friendly campus. Professors care so much for their students and are great resources. Professors want you to feel at home on campus and it is not uncommon for a professor to have the class over for dinner at their home. Many classes involve real world experience including service projects and internships. Students here are very involved and it's not hard to become involved. Concordia offers over 100 clubs, an impressive music programs and a world known language village off campus. I love my school and would highly recommend it!
Concordia College is a great experience for the student looking for a comfortable studying environment with an overtly friendly student body. The community of the campus and relationships between the faculty and students is what truly makes Concordia a great place to be. Every student is given the resources they need to succeed, if only they ask for them or track down the connection. As a private liberal arts college the student body is generally smaller and not as diverse. Another negative side-effect of great resources and small numbers is the high sticker price. However, 99% of students receive financial aid and other scholarships. As with other small colleges, Concordia is facing current downsizing and further budget cuts as more students are choosing not to go to college. For anyone looking for a great undergrad experience, Concordia College is definitely worth a tour. If you aren't sold by the beautiful campus and friendly environment, the dining services will sell you for sure.
Some professors are obviously better/ easier to understand than others! It's important to communicate with your professors so that they can understand how you work best. In addition, applying for tutors is very helpful! There is a great variety of courses offered and class sizes are very manageable! You really get to form a relationship with your professor over the length of the course!
