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.
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.
Concordia is a very small school, and that has benefits and downsides. The biggest benefit is that you get to know everyone; the biggest consequence is that everyone will know everything about you. Make smart decisions and you will have a wonderful time here! We are located about 30 minutes from Manhattan, so there is always a variety of things to do and places to go. Ultimately, the Concordia experience is what you make of it.

The best thing about Concordia is the small student to teacher ratio that allows for close interaction between students and faculty. The worst thing is that it is very disorganized and does not appreciate its International students, financially or socially.
