3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I have never had a problem but i answered the questions according to the reviews of my fellow students

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I have to constantly call on my financial aid. I have to take out way to many loans to cover the cost of the school

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The closest things are in princeton and they are okay!

3 College Junior

Computers: There are computers available in some places on campus such as the labs, game room, and library thats it.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: underage drinking is to a minimum. I dont go out and drink so the party scene doesnt really fit me.

4 College Junior

Majors: I love the business program here. The teachers are too into reading off powerpoints though instead of actually trying to interact and get the students involved.

4 College Junior

Majors: The work load is easy although the ciriculum isnt as easy. They do present some interships but none for out of state students.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The greek life is okay. The TKE are very rude to all the other Frats on the campus so everything overlooks them and doesnt really like them.

1 College Junior

Weather: The spring and fall days are decent. Although there is still nothing to do on campus. The winters are terrible, theres no night life and its always too cold to be out doing activities.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our football team is the main program on campus. Even though football has the most production all the other sports get the money.

1 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: In the town of Athens. There is approximately one stop light and two stores. The campus is very protected and theres nothing to do for students.

3 College Junior

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.

2 College Junior

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.

3 College Junior

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.

1 College Junior

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.
