Off-Campus Dining: It is somewhat difficult to receive off campus dining do to the fact that one must drive 20 minutes to have a meal. In Princeton, WV you are offered Applebee's, Wendy's, Texas Steakhouse, McDonalds, Ryan's, etc. There is an equal amount of dine-in restaurants as well as fast food. The only concern is that there is no fancy locations or options for vegetarians. The only option that is closer in proximity is an Italian restaurant called Gino's.

Majors: For admission into the Teacher Education Program, one must submit a series of paper work. In order to be eligible, an individual must have completed the required courses, passed Praxis Core Academics tests, worked 25 hours with youth, as well as write a couple philosophy statements. I would suggest to anyone to apply early and ask questions whenever they arise.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have very happy now that I am in the program. I am especially thrilled about the professors. Each of them are very knowledgeable about their content area and are eager to help whenever problems come about. I plan on graduating in a year and fulfilling my career as an elementary teacher here in West Virginia.

Athletics: School spirit is definitely growing at Concord. Each year, more and more students are attending the sporting events. Students encourage each other to play to their best ability and support their performances.

Computers: In the library, the access to computers can be very limited, especially during busy times during the semester. Often times the printers are not working properly and you will have to print at another location. The number of computers and printers needs major adjustments. Most of the computers are outdated and need replaced.

5 College Junior

Academics: Concord is known for being an excellent Teaching school. Some of the best teachers in West Virginia have come from Concord University. The education department thrives on ensuring a positive and nurturing atmosphere in order to promote healthy relationships and long lasting impressions.

4 College Junior

Weather: I have not seen local weather affect campus too much. Because Concord is in West Virginia, snow is the only factor that affect school. This past year, school was canceled and delayed more than usual do to the massive amount of snow.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I think the diversity at this campus is wide spread. As clubs are concerned, we have a Gay-Straight Alliance as well as a BCM group for Christians. Also, it is diverse with race and ethnicity. The majority of the students are white or black, however, there are Asian, Indian, Hispanic, and Muslim students as well.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: I have lived on campus for three years now. Though I have enjoyed the easy access to my classes and the cafeteria, I do not enjoy living in the dorms. My dorm building is very old, run down, and it very cramped. I share a room with one girl and the entire floor shares two bathrooms. This sometimes because a major problem with privacy and availability of showers, etc. The cost of living in the dorms is outrageous but I believe that is an issue at any university.

Local Atmosphere: I personally love the town of Athens, where my university is located; however, others do not feel the same. Athens, WV is a very small town that only offers Concord University, Gino's (an Italian restaurant), and CVS. Additionally, there are a few number of apartments complexes, two banks, one gas station, and 5 churches in the community. One would need to drive 20 minutes for Wal-Mart, medical care, or restaurants. I grew up in a very rural community so I enjoy the peaceful life that Athens offers.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I believe our campus has a wonderful student relationship. The majority of on-campus students are athletes. These students work hard to support each other and promote dedication. Additionally, the relationships between sororities and fraternities is excellent. These two groups need to not interact much with the athletes but work exceptionally well with each other. They too are constantly encouraging the others to be the best they can be. All students enjoy campus gatherings such as parades, bonfires, bingo nights, and movies.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Receiving financial aid always seem to be a challenge. Often times, it is the people who are financially stable who receive money for their schooling while ones who truly need it are left without. Our campus does not information students about scholarship opportunities or financial aids that are available.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: One major concern that I have seen is visitation within the dorms. Our campus has four different dorm buildings, which allows males to have two and females two as well. The rule is that visitation of the opposite sex can only occur Sunday to Wednesday and the individual must leave by 12 a.m. Additionally, the opposite sex is allowed to stay Thursday to Saturday, overnight. This has been a problem and keeps social interaction from have freedom.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I personally don't go to many parties

3 College Freshman

Computers: I have my own laptop that I use for work and for personal. The school has wireless in the dorms but you must provide your own router.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's a small campus in a small town. We have a police force but they're not in your face about their presence.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I have not joined a sorority at this point.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus; I live in the dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: No one I know on campus does drugs. If they did they would face expulsion without hesitation from the Dean.

3 College Senior

Majors: I wish they offered more majors, but they have a type of system with the other colleges in the area.

4 College Senior

Majors: I have a love for math ,and it is very challenging. However, I feel like I am getting a quality education.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Other than the worry of how to pay for it. Its steal a good quality education for a lower price than the other schools.
