What is your overall opinion of this school?

Concordia College is a small school with a lot of spirit. The community is very friendly and will treat you like you're family. The special events do a good job of taking your mind off of stress. The academics are serious but the professors are flexible and willing to work with students who put in effort. Overall, Concordia is a very comfortable, non-competitve college that encourages and celebrates its students' success.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the small sized classes. The Professors get to know you on a first name basis and you are able to always ask them for assistance. The close proximity to NYC is an plus too. Museums, theater, and just walking in Central Park adds to the college experience.

For its small-intimate setting and the amount of diversity on campus. In addition, the campus is also known for its determination in order to succeed.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would honestly tell myself to be prepared. Go into college with a plan and set goals. Do not lose yourself in the ideas of freedom and the lack of parents. School is a place for education and education is the KEY to success but there is always a door waiting to destroy ALL of your hard work. Stay away from the golden door, for everything that glitters is not gold. I would also tell myself friends are great to have, only once the friendship you have created with yourself is achieved. Love yourself and do not become absorbed in trying to make friends. Focus on your schoolwork and your set goals. The final thing I would say would be, enjoy your college experience and have fun while learning.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school will have to be the teachers. Although at times, the teachers seem tough, they are there to help and they really go beyond expectations in order to ensure success among their students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best thing about Concordia is the the faculty. They are easy to talk to and always willing to help. They are friendly and engage you in conversations outside of class. I also think that they college's smallness helps a lot because I learn better in a smaller atmosphere.

Describe the students at your school.

I dont believe any student would feel out of place at Concordia. It's a friendly place that accepts anyone. Most students just wear jeans, boots, tee shits and hats to class. They wear this to be comfortable. Ive never heard anyone talk about how much they'll earn once they leave school. I think most people dont know what they'll do once they get out.

Nah, I think it's basically covered

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

I dont believe the one about the fellows students but, I do agree with the sports one. It doesn't apply to all but most.

What are the academics like at your school?

I do know all of my professors names. My favorite class so far was the Sociology of Globalization. It was very interesting and extremely fun. I haven't had a class that I really disliked. So far the most unique class ive taken has been Ceramics. It's a good way to just relax and let all your frustrations out.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

I think International club and Student Government are the most popular. There seems to be a lot of people in both of these clubs. The few traditions that happen there are the Christmas dinner, Thanksgiving dinner and pumpkin carving. On a Saturday night you could watch a movie, go to the city just relax and talk to friends or if your close enough go home.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Some of the stereotypes at Concordia are that fellows students are nerds and they work extremely hard. Another one is that all the sports people hang out with each other and don't talk to other students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Concordia has a small, unique community that really offers its students the ability to feel a part of family. Students have the opportunity to engage with faculty and student peers, which provides a great amount of support for academic and social excellence.

Describe the students at your school.

Students in the dining hall tend to stay with their own groups. But since the school is so small, most students know others.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Concordia is a small, supportive community!

What are the academics like at your school?

Time is spent with professors outside of class. For some English classes, we take trips into the N.Y.C. or have dinner. It's a great way to have conversations in a different setting. Having N.Y.C nearby is also a great resource and many professors take us to plays, museums, restaurants. etc. Concordia embodies the liberal arts...so yes while students are always looking to get a job, Concordia provides that learning for its own sake type experience. It's about becoming an educated individual.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

I am part of Theta, which is a Christian sorority. Most of what we do revolves around fundraising. last semester we ran a karaoke to raise money, this semester an Women's Appreciation Tea and a Raffle. It's a great group of girls who are very supportive. Band Bash is a traditional Concordia event each spring. It's a great way to end the academic year.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The big about Concordia is that it has small classes. This facilitates the interaction between students-students and teachers-students. when I say that I go to Concordia people immediately say "Oh, good school, you sure are smart if you are going there'. I think they might say this because of the academic courses that the school provide which in my opinion are very good. Regardless if you commute or dorm, most of the students spend their time on campus. Because most of the students know each other and also because usually students are involved in another activities on campus, we literally speaking, just go home to sleep.

Describe the students at your school.

In Concordia college, there is respect towards students ethnicity, religion and soci0-economic position. Students are not discriminated. Because the school have a wide range of ethnic groups and religious background, students are used to socialize with students with different backgrounds. Most of the students of Concordia are Americans but there is a significant amount of international students. In Concordia College everyone is treated the same regardless of where they are from.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

No. It is a fact that most of Concordia Students like small classes. However 50% of the students are commuters and non Lutherans. Not all the students that attend to Concordia have tons of money. In fact, 40-50% of the students get financial aid. Concordia has a wide range of ethnicity: white Americans, African-Americans, Africans, Asians, Hispanics and Europeans.

What are the academics like at your school?

Because in Concordia college there is a good interaction between students and teachers, it is hard to find a favorite class. You enjoy most of the classes you take. And another advantage of having small classes is that if you have any questions about a class or a grade you can arrange a meeting with the professor as soon as possible. Also, the school help the students to improve through tutoring section. If you are an international student, like me, learning English is not a problem. The school have an intense program of English as second language(ESL). Some topics given during the courses are so interesting that some students organize meetings outside the classrooms to discuss them. Concordia college have different ways to recognize your academic development. There is a Dean's list in which students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher are listed. Also, the school give scholarships that cover half of the tuition per year. In order to get this, students need to have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and be enrolled in the fellows program. Something I like about Concordia is the technological facilities available to students. These make the classes more dynamic and help the students to keep in touch with the instructors and also do their assignments. The school really try to help students to develop their academics skills. An amazing office at Concordia College is the Career development center. Through this office, students get their tutors (which work with you weekly and for free), find jobs on and off campus and the most important, it facilitates students to do their internships.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Concordia College have i think 2 sororities and 2 fraternities which activities are as popular as the activities organized by the International Club. There are also other clubs and associations: Student Goverment, cheer leaders, orientation commit members, Concordia Tour Choir, Concordia Choir and others. the school also counts with a set of musical activities and art expositions.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

They like small classes. Most live on campus. Most are Lutherans. Most of the students do not get financial aid. Most are white Americans.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best thing about Concordia is that its a very small campus. So everyone in this community will contribute something towards a student's sucess both academic and in extracuricular activities. The professors are very friendly and they play an important role in shaping you into an sucessfull individual.

Describe the students at your school.

I am from India, my first visit to New York is when I joined Concordia. I really felt like I was home away from home. The campus community and the student body was very friendly, which never made me feel homesick. I got accustomed to this campus and America very quickly this was possible only because the support I got from this community.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

Honestly that's not true, it depends on how you look at it. Since its a very small campus community everybody knows everyone so in my opinion I feel that there is no room for stereotypes at Concordia.

What are the academics like at your school?

Once again its a small campus and it has its own advantages. Concordia professor knows students on a very personal note. They work for our sucess, they also encourage students to meet with them anytime and discuss about anything, it could be current events or your future goals, acedemic doubts and even sports for that matter. I am an Business major with Accounting concentration if I have to tell something about that department I would say that they are highly professional and also very friendly people.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Student Activities: we have a lot of clubs and events which gets us involved socially, but the best thing is that when you hangout in friends room.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Half of our student body is filled with athletes and international students. So everybody who fits into those two catagories will hangout only with them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best thing about Concordia is it's a small campus. Small can be a good and bad thing. The reasons why going to a smaller school is always a benefit, especially for students coming out of highschool is it makes for an easy transition. At Concordia, you're known by your name rather than your social security number and it's easier to connect with faculty and staff on a more personal level. Some people don't like a small setting because within the first two to three weeks with the help of facebook and other social networking sites outside of the classroom, it may become boring knowing everyone. Going to a larger school has more surprises I suppose. I'm a commuter student at Concordia and also a transfer student. The town of Bronxville is a quiet town that has local and chain restaurants just blocks away from campus. The Metro North and Bee Line Bus Service are very easy to get to from campus. The train is about a mile walk and the bus stops right infront of the campus. Concordia's main goal is to help it's students out to the best of their power. However students must speak up, no one is a mind-reader. But if you go to a professor or staff member of the college they are very helpful.

Describe the students at your school.

Extremely diverse! There are tons of students from different countries, states, and regions. You learn just as much from your peers as you do your professors sometimes!

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

It's a school where you can really develop a sense of family.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

In reference to my example above, absolutely.

What are the academics like at your school?

If you do your work and communicate with your professors, there should be no problems. There are multiple helpful services on the college campus including, tutoring, the writing center and a program that allows students to have longer time on tests and for someone else to take their notes for them if the professor talks too fast.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Concordia offers baseball, soccer, tennis, golf, cheerleading and greek life to name a few social clubs.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

I wouldn't really say there are stereotypes about Concordia's students, but just like any other public place, there is going to be stereotypes between people within that space. For example, the Commons is the main cafeteria on Concordia's campus. Upon walking into the commons, it is clear where the jocks sit (better known as the "Baseball table") followed by the soccer and tennis teams table - alrhough really anyone can choose to sit whereever he or she may like.
