3 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a pretty good scholarship automatically.

Athletics: I don't participare in any sports, so I'm not really sure.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of good restaurants if you know where to look.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I've lived here all my life and Downtown Fargo is pretty great.

Party Scene: It's a pretty strict Lutheran school so...

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Mental Health services are top notch.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Most of the parties are on the weekends. If you want to go to a party most of them are house parties and you have to know someone to get in, but everyone is really friendly and will not oust you.

Party dorms are in the East Complex.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Concordia is well known for their language programs and rightly so. All the professors are really good at their field, and passionate about their work. Even if they can't help you the way you need it, there are night study sessions, and even semester-long tutoring by native speakers of your language.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Concordia on the surface seems kinda strict- numbered amount of "visitations" per semester, a dry campus, and really intense parking police. However, it is really easy to get around these things. No one really checks in their visitors, especially if it is a regular thing. While it is a "dry campus" most everyone drinks, and you can hide your alcohol in the dorms easily as RAs are supposedly not allowed to check the wardrobes that you have in your room (store it there and not in the fridge and you'll be fine.) Also parking violations are intense, but parking is free, so just park in your lot and you are fine.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The rules are strict, but students are able to get away with a lot

4 College Freshman

Majors: Professors are great, and very helpful. Advisors also help us to get into grad school and classes that we need for our major.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is only one sorority on campus, so Greek life isn't that important here.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at our school are Division 3, but we are very competitive in many of them. Sports are attended, but not in great numbers. There is a following for each sport, though, and coaches and teammates are awesome.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Intelligent and kind people. Typically from Minnesota or surrounding areas

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.
