5 College Junior

Academics: I am an Accounting and Finance major in the School of Business. I love it to be perfectly honest! The workload is challenging but manageable with my other responsibilities such as work and club involvement. If I am having difficulties in a particular subject there is numerous resources for me as a student, such as tutoring or professor help. All the School of Business professors have business industry experience and willingly use their business resources to help students succeed in their future careers. For the School of Business, it is required that students complete an internship which is important for work experience and a great opportunity for all students to have.

Academics: All of the professors and degree programs offered are top notch! On of the shining stars of the university curriculum is the CORE which teaches students to analyze and relate important issues (such as "what is true") to multiple subjects. I feel that I am a better student and citizen with the knowledge I have gained in the CORE curriculum. The school programs special programs such as tutoring, writing services, and disability services. To put it simply it would be harder to fail a course than it would to do the work that is assigned and to utilize the resources available to you as a student.

Diversity: Concordia is 50% racially white. To not disregard minority groups from apply to the university, the admissions team reaches out to all racial groups. I am a hispanic student and have experience no discrimination at Concordia, despite the lack of diversity. Major of students are Christian, though not all. These students are also welcomed into the university with open arms.

Local Atmosphere: Irvine is the FBI rated top 10 safest cities in the U.S. While it is a city that is growing everyday, it still feels like a suburban style living. The area is very nice and wealthy which can inspire students to set positive high goals for their careers in the future. With the District, beach, and Spectrum a 10 minute drive away, many students go to hangout, shop and do fun stuff with their friends.

Facilities: While keeping in mine that Concordia is a small private university campus, the library, coffee shop, book store and outdoor is impressive. For students that like to be adventurous, there are trails to explore around the nature preserve next to the campus. As for student events and activities, there is always something going on! Most popular events are Rock the Amp talent show night, Midnight Madness, Suitecase Bingo, and Concordia Christmas. The events put on by the student union are a lot of fun for students of all ages and interests. The only downside to the Facilities is the gym for non-athletic student body. The gym is small and not as great compared to other university gyms around California, but still provides a good workout.

Facilities: The atmosphere that Concordia gives its students is the best in my opinion. Not only is it centered around Christianity, the goal of the university is to create 'wise, honorable and cultivated students.' Students get to know their professors in the smaller classroom settings, are exposed to rich literature through the CORE program, get one-on-one help with academic advisors and career advisors. The Concordia student body and employees look out for one another similar to a family, which is made possible with the Christian beliefs the university stands by. Also, with a smaller campus, students get to interact and get to know people of all ages better than in a large public university.

Campus Housing: Concordia's campus housing is by far the best university housing I have heard of, especially on the west coast. A student only shares a unit with three other people, a roommate and two suite mates to be specific. One person gets a room to themselves with a bed, desk, and walk in closet. A room for one person could easily fit 3 people, which students would normally except in a public university system. Between the four people in one unit, is two sinks and private bathroom. The downside to the dorms is no a/c and lack of sound barrier between units. As for the social atmosphere, there are lot of social activities to do that is put on by the R.A.s. Important note: Concordia is a dry campus! While the campus housing is great, the not so great part is the cost of it, which is pricey for majority of students.

Campus Dining: As with all college campus dining halls, the food gets boring and repetitive. Since the Student Union is the only option for food on-campus I wish that it was better. However there are lots of food options for students no matter their dietary needs. The only problem I have with the cafe is that the flex dollar system is not flexible. If a student doesn't use all of their meals for the week they disappear instead of roll over and the meal ticket can't be used more than once in a food period (breakfast, lunch, or dinner).

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing for Concordia students is only available for students not living with their parents and are at least 21 years of age.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Considering that Concordia is small compared to many other universities in California, majority of students rally and support the university's teams. Whether the game is at varsity level or intramural, there is always a good turnout of fans and high school spirit. As a university, we excel and take pride in the sports we are involved in enough so that we are applying to join the NCAA division 2 bracket.

Off-Campus Dining: For students that attend Concordia University Irvine, the off-campus dining options are endless for those days that the cafe is not cutting it. As long as you are willing to walk a mile or so, fast food chains, small restaurants, and family businesses are at your disposal. Since Concordia and the dining options is right next to UCI's campus, I think that the dining costs are average and acceptable for a college student budget.
