Concordia is located in the Fargo-Moorhead area, which is home to a multitude of original and chain restaurants. There are many different choices, and the overall value is decent at most places. While there are a lot of options, the alternative options are not quite as bountiful. They are few and far between, but they do exist. Fortunately, everything is within five miles of Concordia’s campus, so if dining options on campus are sub-par, fine dining is only a short car trip away.
Students often can receive discounts for certain things via coupon books sent out each semester. As a college student, discounts are incredibly important, and you get to know which restaurant has deals and when. There are Applebee’s half-price appetizer nights, pizza delivery discounts, and half-price Moxie Java hours. This is essential knowledge for students who want to eat out but who also want to have some money in their pockets. The West Acres Mall is a short drive from campus and is home to many shops and restaurants. Students like to visit the mall on weekends and eat at the many places available there. It’s very easy to find new and interesting places off campus to eat, and the value for college students is usually adequate.
