Despite Concordia being an expensive private school the quality of the education and amazing professors make my college experience worth the time and money I have invested into every semester. The professors are always available via phone, email, or to meet in person. Given the small campus professors do no forget who you are even if you took their class one or four years ago. As a student you get the necessary one on one help from staff and professors. My academic advisor is awesome because she does not just assign me classes, but actually takes the time to make sure the way my schedule will be set up is successful and not too overwhelming.

Concordia is the type of small school that makes you feel like you are under a microscope: you know everyone and everyone knows you. This is both a good and a bad thing in that you always have a friend but you always have judgment. There is no privacy and it is hard to feel like an adult in such a small school but the quality and care found in the education is worth all of it.

My overall experience at Concordia has been great. I love how close and friendly everyone is. What makes my school unique is it is a small private school a few minutes outside of downtown Portland. My favorite experiences have been going to soccer games in the fall. Its a great school because everyone is so nice and approachable. I would definitely pick it again if given the chance!
