What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
Reach out to teachers, and other students in your classes especially if you aren't going to live on campus. And go to school early for a tour. Believe me it helps you find your classes when it comes to the first day of school.
Sherron from Milwaukee, WI
Be who you are. Don't be that person that tries to fit in. There are other people out there who are like you and those are the people you want to put yourself around because they will accept you for who you are.
Ryan from Milwaukee, WI
Make sure to keep up with your grades. The teachers wil help as long as you ask, but that does not mean it will be easy. A great learning environment.
Timothy from Sterling Heights, MI
If you are looking for smaller classrooms and personable professors, then Concordia is right for you. I have been here for 3 years already and have loved every minute of it. I came to Concordia for the loving environment that was portrayed, the beautiful campus (we are right by Lake Michigan so you can see the view of the lake and we have our own bluff with a beach where students are able to have bonfires on occasion), the small classrooms with the personable professors, and because it was a Lutheran school. If you are looking for these things then Concordia is right for you. There are many opportunities to get involved and my advice to you is to get involved as much as you can, because that is where you begin to build relationships with the people you come across with at your time at Concordia.
Marissa from Beaver Dam, WI
Students looking to attend Concordia should be aware of the services the school provides and take advantage of the advisors. Prospective students should not be afraid and enjoy the people here because it is a truly safe environment.
Taylor from Waupaca, WI
The tips that I would give prospective students it to go to social events. Don't be shy. I have not met one mean or stuck up person while being in Concordia. You will make friends. You just have to open up and let yourself be you. Talk to anyone. I would also suggest to map our your classes before you go the next morning because on your first day you may get a little confused! If you walk around the campus enough you will learn the whole campus in no time! I would really also suggest tutoring for classes you are struggling with. I was never tutored in high school and never thought I would need to be. I took advanced anatomy and physiology my first year at Concordia and tutoring really helped me get an A in the class. You can get practice tests from tutoring that help you understand what you know and what you need to work on. Another suggest would be for your meal plan to pick the meal plan with 10 meals a week and 400 Falcon Points. I think that, that is the best meal plan to go with. You will have enough points and not have to worry about running out at the end of the semester. However, if you want to eat breakfast in the cafeteria everyday I would suggest the 15 meals a week and 200 falcon points. I hope that helped!
Miranda from Kingsford, MI
Bring a car to campus. If you don't, you will have almost nothing to do on campus, and there is not a lot within walking distance. If you don't have a car, make friends with someone who does, quickly. If you like coffee, bring your own coffee maker because the coffee shop is closed on weekends.
Elizabeth from Whitefish Bay, WI
Utilize all of your resources! They are made available to students for a reason, use them! Do not be embarassed to ask for help or to ask questions, for all you know someone else may have the same question as you do.
Samantha from Hartford, WI
If you want to come and check the campus out, there are many tours given each week. If you want a couple days experience, there are opportunities to stay with a current student here too.
