Student life is the worst part about CU. There isn't much to do due to it's remote rural location. Though the school tries to keep the students entertained, they usually fall short. Besides the occasional bingo night, band, or sporting event there isn't anything else besides studying, which is a good thing because you will need to do it. The night life also is non-existant outside the constant house parties from Thursday night to sometimes Sunday.
The dorms are also not that great. They serve their purpose but the housing department is a pain to deal with and it takes them forever to respond to issues.
The people are GREAT though! Everyone is nice and very helpful. Southern hospitality at it's finest.

Campus security is absolutely wonderful at Concord. Most people down them for giving out parking tickets, but they are extremely helpful. There is usually some sort of theft at least once a semester in the dorm rooms, but campus security and the RAs make sure that isn't a problem. If your car won't start, you are having issues with another student, or even if you just want them to escort you back to your dorm at night, they are ready and willing to assist you. They even offer personal safety courses during the semester!

Great for Socializing! Concord's many organizations offer plenty of entertainment on campus, ranging from hypnotists to bingo. The student center offers a great lounge, delicious, affordable food, and a game room. The library is perfect: Technologically advanced, but still maintains the antique age of books. For athletes, there's a large track and field, tennis courts, basketball courts, and a pool also open to the public.
