I came to Concordia College as an undergradQuite BrightNursing
I came to Concordia College as an undergrad and then started the Nursing Program. Concordia for undergrad is ridiculous. The kids are not that bright, are shallow, and have an undue sense of superiority. Most students don't really care about their academics and just want to get high, drink, or hook up ALL the time, and not in a fun way, but in a sad/apathetic this-school-sucks-so-i'm-gonna-get-high-all-the-time type of way. A lot of the undergrads are ignorant. This is probably due to the fact that Concordia will let just about anybody into their school. The vibe on campus is very apathetic. The school spirit is definitely lacking, but it makes sense because the school is pretty lame and the sports teams generally aren't very good. The faculty seems lazy and out of touch. Students joke about how it should be called "Concordia High School" and it's so true, because it feels like High School all over again. Now onto the Nursing Program. Concordia's Nursing program is different than Concordia for undergrad. The nursing program is good. However they expect A LOT from you, but that is how the nursing profession works. This program is CHALLENGING, but also rewarding. They make you work for it. Also keep in mind that the program is new and they are still working through the kinks. If you're just coming for nursing, Concordia is a good choice if you live nearby and want to get done a little early (since the program is accelerated.) If you're from out of state, or are undergrad, DON'T COME TO CONCORDIA. It's not that positive of an experience, and you could really go to any other school. Also it's very expensive, and the campus facilities (the gym, the cafeteria) are crappy enough that you'll frequently find yourself wondering where that $40,000 a year is going... faculty crack parties? Probably. Also there are like less than 800 students. If you're looking for variety, go elsewhere. Yes it's close to NYC, but it's far enough away that you probably won't go more than twice a week and probably a lot less than that. The proximity to NYC is not worth the shittiness of campus life.

Please avoid! If the associate dean has aAverageUndecided
Please avoid! If the associate dean has a grudge against you, he will do everything to get you of out the school (this includes lying). This college is not worth $40000; there's no on campus events such as music concerts (only choirs), the campus itself is dead most of the time and has a childish high school vibe. You're just paying $40000 just to have and attend church.

At this school, you are not a human; the staff will take control and make decisions for you whether if you like it or not. If you don't comply, they will threaten to kick you out of the school. Do not make the smiles fool you. If they don't see you making friends, they will come for you. Also, the staff will send people to talk to you, so beware of fake friends. THIS COLLEGE IS HORRIBLE! THAT'S WHY IT'S NOT RECOGNIZED! AVOID THIS COLLEGE OR ATTEND AT WILL

This is the worst excuse for a collegeQuite BrightEducation
This is the worst excuse for a college ever! I've been waiting to leave since the beginning of my first semester. Now my second semester is almost done and i'm super happy to be leaving. I would not recommend this college to anyone even my worst enemy! when you go for a tour or to look at the school they show you fake rooms and pay off people to tell you how great of a school it is. In reality it is nothing like they show you or tell you. The food is horrible, not to mention the the terrible staff workers. They act like they go to the college and have favorites, if they don't like you don't expect good food! If you enjoy people who act like they are in high school still then this is the place for you. There's tons of cliques, snotty kids, arrogant kids, rude people especially. Not to mention the overload of Asian kids who think that being rude is okay! Don't expect any of them to talk to you or even hold the door open, they just let it slam in your face. All the girls act like they live in the ghetto and they smile to your face and talk garbage about you when you're not around. I was one of those people who search through reviews and didn't believe the negative things a saw because of the act when I visited.. but boy i was wrong!! every bad thing said about Concordia College is truthful. Worst experience of my life!!
