Concord University does have great professors who are very dedicated and know the material they are teaching. Although, the food selection isn't the best. The cafeteria food is sometimes good, but a general amount of the time not so great. If you have flex dollars, you can eat from the on-campus Subway or Wingspan. That can work out until you run out of a limited amount of flex dollars. Another flaw is the location of the college. Concord is located in the small, sort of isolated community of Athens. This makes it hard for students without vehicles to get out and do anything fun when they're not in class or doing homework. There are however on-campus organizations such as SGA, fraternities, sororities, and music ensembles for students wanting to engage in social activity. The last thing to not be forgotten is the campus living up to it's reputation as "The Campus Beautiful". The campus is small, but a beautiful location to explore on a sunny, or rainy day.
