Administration: I've never had an issue with it, though I have heard about fridges being taken away for drinking. Also, know that a ticket for parking in the wrong lot is a lot cheaper than parking too long on the street.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Process was very easy. Could always use a little more of course.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I'm not really a part of the party scene. I think for the most part Hallet and Erickson are the party dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is great here. It is possible to get bored, but there is almost always something that sparks my interest. I do wish that dining dollars rolled over each semester...though most people blast through them to quickly to have any left!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I really love it here. Freshman orientation week and the fact that you have a first semester class with your orientation group is extremely helpful for the adjustment period. The only reason it loses a star is because there is no Computer Science major, just a minor.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a big emphasis on the arts at this school, but we are also proud of our sports. There is always a good sized supportive student section at our sports games. Everyone gets involved during homecoming. It is possible to be very involved in our sports program, whether as a player or a fan, or not as involved.

The athletics facilities are great for athletes, there are good courts and a good track. But the facility isn't as welcoming to students who aren't athletes.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Class attendance is almost always enforced very strictly. Since it is a small school, most professors place a lot of emphasis on being in class and actively participating. This is awesome for engaging courses, especially for your particular major, but sometimes annoying for our general classes.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had the opportunity to compete for the Presidential Scholarship. This was a great process and also a great way to be on campus and experience a little taste of the academic expectations. The professors were so inviting; the experience went a lot more smoothly than I expected. I didn't receive the Presidential, but I was granted the Faculty Scholarship which is only one thousand dollars less a year. The school has good scholarships, sometimes a little hard to get, but there is a big emphasis on theater, music, and the arts.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is generally pretty good. There are always options for pizza, pasta and burgers. Sometimes there aren't many other things to choose from. Also, they tend to have the same kinds of things in the main line week to week; a lot of chicken. For a college campus, the food is pretty good. It does tend to get tiresome, though.

But the theme and holiday dinners are awesome!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Fargo is just across the street and there are tons of options to choose from.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness of policy enforcement really just depends on where you are and timing. Just don't be obnoxious and you probably won't get caught.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Concordia is really great at making the school affordable.

Party Scene: The truth is, it is college, so there are parties, but if you don't want to be involved with them you don't have to be. Usually though, just walk around East or through the houses around campus on the weekends and you are sure to find something.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Anderson Commons always has something to choose from, you will always find something to eat! The Maize also has the world's best fries!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Concordia makes living on campus bearable. The dorms are filled with a lively community and you can always find what you need.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't participate in Concordia's off-campus housing. I live with my parents.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't too many options for food right by campus, if you want more variety you have to head a ways off of 8th street.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I like the use of the good samaritan call for help, if students have gotten into drugs or alcohol and need help. But parking enforcement is much too strict than it needs to be.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office is always ready to help, but it is difficult to find money to pay for tuition, when I'm paying for this myself and no help from parents. Which is also why I'm filling out this scholarship survey.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I never go to parties on campus. I live at home and am too busy with work or studying.

College Freshman

Campus Food: I live at home and do not have a meal plan. I have only eaten in DS a couple of times and never in The Maize.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live at home and have never lived in a dorm. A response would not benefit your survey.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are some close, cheap places. They aren't the safest.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

High school seniors are constantly barraged by numerous colleges, all with one basic claim: that they are the best, the cream, the institution with which you not only aspire to be involved, but the institution that fits your exact personality traits. Concordia is no different than the rest of the institutions vying for new freshman classes. However, the college delivers on its promises and, more importantly, does not entice potential students with false or skewed information. You know exactly what you get when enrolling at Concordia, and that is by no means a bad thing. On the contrary, it is nice to know what is explicitly offered.

Some students have their doubts upon applying and accepting freshman status at Concordia, but it is an overall fantastic experience. It is a small, private, liberal arts college that won’t consume all of your money, at least not as much as other similar private schools. There are problems—it is definitely not a utopia—but the positives tend to outweigh the negatives. The professors genuinely want students to succeed, and they exemplify that desire by advising educational student groups, participating in extracurricular events, and supporting students when they give presentations or submit research projects. With all of this work outside of class, students have a great opportunity to show they have leadership skills and that they can cope with the stresses and issues that occur every day in the working world. Many current students, given the opportunity, would choose this school again. The entirety of Concordia commits to providing excellent academics and extremely satisfactory social events. There are very few things to complain about as a Concordia student, and the things with the potential to be complained about are trivial at best.
