2 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's terrible for a Christian college. I don't party, or spend time with people that do, but I always hear stories and it really bothers me.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: When it comes to clubs and bars, there are a lot of bars but only a few clubs, but the campus provides a lot of opportunities to have a good time on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I'm underage, but never bored. There are often dances or other events and always places just to hang out.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Cold to walk to and from in the winter, but once there, great people and a lot of fun.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are bars close to campus, but most people are studying. I haven't seen many off-campus parties. Most parties are small in size.

Concordia is not known for extravagant or raging parties. None of these happens on campus, and the only options for underage students are house parties, which are minute in numbers. The "party scene" is like some sort of joke at this school, and it doesn’t even seem like something that could be in any way affiliated with Concordia College. There are some parties—it is college, after all—but they are only at select houses off campus, and you usually need to know someone in order to receive an invite. At these parties, anything goes, no matter what age you are.

There are very few bars or clubs in the area, and the prices at such places are only decent. There are a few bars—seriously, a few—that students of legal age can go to for drinking. The club scene doesn’t exist in a town like Moorhead, and it doesn’t seem to be missed by the majority of students. Concordia is simply not much of a party school. The focus for its students is primarily academics and having a healthy social life.
