Concordia University - Wisconsin Reviews

Dorms here are most definitely high quality compared to other campuses with a similar price range. The best options here are most definitely Chemnitz and Coburg because of their suite style living and air conditioning, but the other dorms are not all that terrible. Katherine is also one of the better dorms here because of the open layout of the rooms. Applications for housing and listing your suggestions is also very easy! The amenities are really great for such a small school with good dining options (more on weekdays when everyone is here) and a wide variety of activities like sand volleyball courts, video games, and pool. Cost is definitely one of the negative aspects of CUW, but it is very easy to get a lot of financial aid from them just for having good grades and a good communication with an admissions counselor that can help you find all of the aid options for you. The tunnels make getting around camps very convenient and I will probably never have to go outside in the Wisconsin winter, which is a definite plus.

The small school atmosphere is great. I also came for a Christian education and I've got exactly that. There is a strong foundation in Christ: they offer chapel services every weekday and offer numerous courses that focus on learning about theology, specifically Lutheran Christianity. The campus isn't terribly big and it doesn't take too long to figure out where everything is. People are always willing to go out of their way to help you if you ask. The dorms are pretty nice, depending on which one you get. Freshmen typically have the lower end, but they are still not bad at all. Food variety and quality are decent. They have a cafeteria, sub shop, coffee shop, and convenience store/mini food court area.
I will be starting my program in Spring 2018, but I selected Concordia based on research I performed on the best online Master's Nursing Programs. I'm also a Wisconsin RN and love to commit my studies to my home state!
