I love Concordia! Concordia has an extremely friendly campus. Professors care so much for their students and are great resources. Professors want you to feel at home on campus and it is not uncommon for a professor to have the class over for dinner at their home. Many classes involve real world experience including service projects and internships. Students here are very involved and it's not hard to become involved. Concordia offers over 100 clubs, an impressive music programs and a world known language village off campus. I love my school and would highly recommend it!

My overall experience of Concordia has been great! I transferred because of the amazing faculty and more strenuous academics. The faculty are always there for the students, whether it is for academics or personal. I took a Tri-College class to complete a language requirement for my major, and to my surprise the professor helped me throughout the transferring process and getting to know the school better. That was just my Latin Professor! My department director also got a hold of me and helped me with my questions about my future. I couldn't ask for more helpful and nice the faculty have been to me.

Some professors are obviously better/ easier to understand than others! It's important to communicate with your professors so that they can understand how you work best. In addition, applying for tutors is very helpful! There is a great variety of courses offered and class sizes are very manageable! You really get to form a relationship with your professor over the length of the course!
