I am a freshman in college right now and I absolutely love going to Concordia University! I really love the small class sizes so every student gets an opportunity to develop a one-on-one relationship with their professors. The school is completely connected by tunnels so if there is ever a really cold day and you dont want to go outside, there is no need to! One thing I would say I would like to see change is the food options here. We only have three spots to get food and the cafe food is not very..edible.

I transferred to Concordia University Wisconsin and found my home away from home at this exceptional university. The suburban city of Mequon was safe and beautiful, and I loved that Milwaukee was down the road and had everything a major US city can offer: theaters, concerts, sports, museums, etc. The surrounding community is full of important and powerful people in business, education, and politics. My classmates and I were given unparalleled opportunities in our passions and careers through various activities and amazing internships. I always felt supported at CUW with my professors, coaches, and other professional staff. Great university that is truly a hidden gem in the Midwest of United States.
I love how invested every professor is in my education. They do everything in their power to help make sure that I am succeeding in everything that I do. There is no better campus in Wisconsin than Concordia's campus, it is so breathtaking. I felt at home the first time I stepped foot there. I am from small-town Door County, so coming to a smaller school made the transition to college so easy. The helpfulness of the professors helped A LOT as well. I have nothing but amazing things to say about Concordia's academic program!
