School "Spirit"-none to barely there...

1/3 athletes, 1/3 arts, 1/3 not Christian/ "Other" religion that is known for developing/recruiting terrorists/receive free education here while everyone else pays. Don't care about becoming apart of population that are the values of Concordia St Paul...pretty much CU will take people regardless of cultural values,,,money is the bottom line.

On Campus experience is to go off campus to other schools for fun... If you want an on campus experience where student body is actually into the school overall experience go elsewhere.

Positives: small class size, can text throughout class, no prayers are required in any class even though its a Christian school, people are friendly, you have NO access to athletic fields unless you are an athlete otherwise the school rents field/gymnasium time out to public first with your tuition dollars!

Student fitness center is a joke.

Concordia is a really fantastic place to be if you're looking to focus on your degree, and receive a quality education. Class sizes are crazy small which is incredibly beneficial for discussions, and it makes lecture much more interactive, which you don't get at every school. If you're looking to party or get that cliche "college experience", I wouldn't completely recommend Concordia, considering that it isn't much of a student life environment.
From just the short time being here, I already know that I have picked the very best school for me. The professors care about you and want to help you succeed. The very first day I spent there my music professor came up to me in the hallway and addressed me by name and asked me about a choir audition. My other professors have also asked me what they can do to help me succeed. I wouldn't choose a different college if given the choice because I believe this one is the best for me!
