What is your overall opinion of this school?

I did not enjoy my time here at all. The professors were mostly good, classes were fine except hardly any credits transfer- something that I was not told upfront and it seemed as though they wanted to keep that hidden. The students there seemed really fake and the ones who weren't were still really cliquey. There really wasn't any student life and if you didn't party or weren't a part of a few exclusive friend groups, there was absolutely no things to do. Overall, I would not recommend this school at all, unless you are very Lutheran.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CUI is committed to a Christ-centered education and equipping students to be the next generation of critical thinking leaders. We are a connected community that encourages, challenges, and supports one another. Professor know students, students pursue professors to engage in intellectual discourse to answer the big questions in life. Concordia not only helps students grow in mind, but also in spirit and community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Concordia University Irvine is a school that provides a spot for every student to be involved in something. There are various sports teams, as well as clubs to join, and also intermural sports that students can be a part of. Going to Concordia is like a home away from home, through all the relationships that are made from the students with professors and coaches it truly feels like a second family here. Professors genuinely take the time to teach the materials and make sure that students understand what is being taught but, are also thinking about what makes that answer correct. Academics are truly amazing at Concordia, the professors have students think on a deeper level, this does not involve tiresome memorization but simply asking what students think. I have really enjoyed my time at this university from being involved with cheer and supporting my girls and boys basketball team at many games, to also learning the importance taking time to think on a more meaningful level.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This a great school. You can adapt well the environment is very friendly. It is easy to make friends. People are nice and kind including the professors. If you are looking for a place that had Christian values and a place where you can still have fun. Look no further because this college is great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The professors care about every student as an individual and take the time to get to know them and make themselves available for class help as well as being available just to chat about life. The campus is incredibly safe and academically engaging to grow scholars. While the school is affiliated with the Lutheran church, the religion is not forced on students, but rather opportunities are provided for students who want to grow their faith or may be curious about the faith.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus and the atmosphere created here. The staff is very kind and helpful. The study abroad programs are excellent and daily chapel is definitely uplifting. I find the academic advising can be helpful, but you have to have a plan going in if you are going to get all the classes you need. Ask you major professors and upperclassmen in your major if you don't know what classes to take, not academic advising. The professors are generally very helpful and truly want you to learn, but you have to choose to seek out their help. There are many opportunities for tutoring and peer-review of papers, so you never have to turn something in with doubts.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good, safe school with an overall friendly environment. However, the high tuition should provide more services and activities. Money seems to be used for the school's appearance rather than for the satisfaction of the students. The tuition rises every year to the point that I have to worry about paying for college and it's too late for me to transfer as a Spring junior.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Concordia University Irvine is the perfect college for a student who wants to succeed in their undergraduate years. The professors are always there for you and are more than willing to set time aside to talk to their students, and they actually encourage that. There is always free tutoring where any question you have gets answered, and students from the same classes bring their study guides and different assignments in order to discuss and see other perspectives and answers. There's Starbucks on campus which I go to very often, and the cafeteria and cafe staff are made up of both students and non-students who are all very kind. Since the college is so small, there is a big sense of community. Making friends is easy, and there are different spots on campus where you can join together to study or spend time alone. The dorms are pretty nice in my opinion they're formatted in a way where you can have a sense of privacy (not 2 beds right next to each other or in the same 4 walls). There is on-campus counseling for $5 for any mental reassurance that is needed and multiple events for mental wellbeing (we had a dog-petting day where there was a bunch of dogs running around the grass who were very friendly good boys). Class size is great- I am a biology major, which is impacted in many colleges, and my biggest class size was 20 students. There are many events on campus and there are services that offer a bus ride to and from the beach, shopping centers, and Disneyland for free, as well as a hiking spot right on campus that has a great view. College is very hard and takes so much work, but attending Concordia has made it enjoyable for providing me with so much help, such great friends, amazing professors, and a super beautiful and green campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a Sophomore attending this university, I can say that this school is actually pretty nice. It's quiet, safe, and pretty small. The class sizes are great, as the staff to student ratio is about 1:25. I personally find the small class sizes to be the most advantageous aspect of this school, because it really allows you to become involved and seek the help you need from students and staff. They are currently updating the campus to include new buildings and amenities, that are actually rather nice. The campus is small and quaint, and would not necessarily be the first choice of someone who is looking for a more busy atmosphere. I personally would give this University a 4 out of 5 stars, because it's not perfect, but is enjoyably decent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Concordia is a great school with a beautiful campus that has a really diverse and friendly student body. Most of the professors tend to be quite understanding and teach really well. It's hard to ever feel alone here, and everyone is almost always reaching out to help. I highly recommend Concordia University to those looking for a college that has zero judgement and tons of opportunities to make lots of long term friends, all while receiving a well structured education.
