I really enjoyed and appreciated the immediate warm welcoming I received on my very first visit to the campus. Everyone you interact with or seek for help cares about you and what you are trying to accomplish whether thats faculty and staff members or other students. There is always someone there willing to lend a helping hand. The campus is absolutely gorgeous, it has great intimate class sizes that are perfect for hands-on learning with a comfortable environment laying as its foundation, and there are so many ways to get involved with the school and its people through clubs, athletics, organizations, and all the opportunities that stem from these venues. Plus, how can you go wrong with that beautiful lake view all year long?!

Concordia is a great school and I'm really happy to be here! There is no shortage of ways to get involved on campus and not just by participating in sports or joining a club. There are many activities throughout the semester that range from movie nights to bingo. I currently have a job on campus and I love it! It's a great way to make some extra money, especially if you don't have a car with you on campus. I will say that if you have the option to live off campus I would definitely recommend going that route because the food selection isn't always the best and I found myself skipping meals, which is why I commute now. And if you really like to party this probably isn't the school for you because Concordia is a dry campus. Overall, I think Concordia is an excellent choice if you're looking to continue your education! :)
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.
