Although concordia wasn't my top pick, I am so glad I came here. It is my home! People are so friendly and often form long-lasting relationships. From Core to the academic showcase to the Honors program, there are a lot of ways to grow academically. Professors will have lunch with you, make tea for you, and tutor you in whatever you need help with. Although tutors and TA's are available, the professors themselves are very invested in helping you succeed. There are also many opportunities in the student leadership program. The only complaints I have would be the separation between athletes and the rest of the student population. Although the dorms are larger than many dorms at other colleges, at this point they are old and falling apart so really not that great.
Concordia University is a University with a large diversity. Students feel very comfortable. They are able to contact their professors and they interact well. The campus offers a good way of silence and quietness. Not only does Concordia University help students grow academically to become future leaders, but they also develop a personal connection with Jesus Christ. Students at Concordia University are well involved at their community and in their studies. They strive for the best, thanks to the help provided by the University.
Sports at Concordia University Irvine is one of the things that's brings us all together. Its amazing how involved everyone is and how we all come togrther to support each other. Weather it be in the gym, on the field or even on the track you see so much joy within everyone. Their is so mucg team spirit all around! You can hear the screamimg eagles from miles away. The athletics facilities are also great the school really tries to gives us the best! As an athlete you are given some many opportunites to shine with your teammates.
