4 College Sophomore

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Concordia is a strict campus in terms of visitation and alcohol use. Students are only allowed on the opposite sex’s dorm floor until 1 a.m. on weekdays and 2 a.m. on weekends. This policy is enforced by resident advisers who go on periodic “rounds” in each dorm. Alcohol use is forbidden throughout the entire campus of Concordia, and enforcers adhere to this rule much like the visitation rules. Fines and academic probations will be issued to students unwilling or unable to follow the institution's rules. A somewhat unspoken rule, in some cases anyway, is the attendance policy. Professors expect you to be at every class and will sometimes even make grades dependent on it. Most classes are small, so it isn’t like skipping a lecture with one hundred or more students.

Concordia may be pretty strict with student life, but it is not difficult to live by the rules, and some students find them to be to their benefit. The RAs, though icons of authority, are extremely approachable and friendly, and there are always off-campus parties that students can go to where Concordia rules do not apply. This is what some students choose to do on weekends instead of risking receiving a violation for doing something illegal on campus.
