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.
