"This place is all about signing you up. Once you sign on the dotted line you owe BIG tuition bills but do not have a solid foundation. Uneducated teachers. Employees who are not teachers filling teaching roles becuase of high teacher turnover. They couldn't care less about you other than getting your name on that line. BEWARE! READ THE FINE PRINT! ABOVE ALL, do NOT feel presured to sign up as fast as they would like you to. Go home, review paper work and think. There is no short cut for a medical job."

"Concord is an excellent university! It is very cheap compared to other schools, which truly matters after graduating, and they also have a lot of "free money" for their students. However, I would be lying if I said that a liberal arts education is worth they money. Sure, if you are getting to go for free or next to nothing, then by all means, go to Concord. If you are having to take out tens of thousands of dollars worth of loans when all is said and done, then I strongly encourage you to major in something worthwhile. Art, psychology, graphic design, business management, recreation and tourism management, English, art, political science, and such are truly useless degrees that will not get you a job after graduating. Let's be honest, you want a job that makes some money after graduating, right? I though so. If so, consider education or social work, or another university all together. The truth of the matter is, if you are going to spend more money than you have ever seen in your life on a degree, you better make sure that degree will get you a job, and those majors that I listed before, are about as useless as the tree they cut down to print your degree out on. Good luck everybody!"

"I wish I could have found better employment. The school was great and professors as well. They just did not help me find a good paying job or career. I wish I was making more and could pay off some debts. It seems I just have a degree and nothing more."

"Concord University is a small school located in southern West Virginia with under 4000 students attending. Many close friends told me that I was making a mistake by choosing Concord, but I am very proud of my choice to attend the great school. Concord is often referred to as " the little Harvard on the hill", because of the rigorous curriculum and is respected a lung graduate schools in the region. The class sizes are small which allows you to have a personal relationship with your professor and they help you grow as a student and as a person. Concord University is a great fit for anyone looking for a great college education that equips you for you professional career or studies."

"I love Concord and I love the English department. They have both been my home for four years and although I'm ready to graduate I will definitely miss all the memories I made there. The program is incredible for a small university. Many English majors go to grad school to discover they've been doing the same things for years."

"The English program at Concord is very good. The professors are intelligent and caring, and the classes do a good job of preparing you for a career. Concord is a small school, so you are able to receive a more personalized education."

"With my current work-life balance, I do not have enough experience with the social life on campus to rate that category. I started the graduate program in fall 2014. Overall, I am satisfied with the program. One con I have is that some of the professors seem to teach like they are on "autopilot". They have taught the class a number of times, and do not seem excited or enthusiastic about the class they are teaching. One pro is that the university understands that group work outside of class time can be difficult to coordinate, so many of the professor do not require group projects outside of class time."

"The pros for me, was that Concordia university offers a safe and competitive accelerated programs that help the working families continue to redevelop themselves without dealing with the traditional program structures. Cons was that the programs was condense into 4 or 5 week session with massive work loads."

"The small class size along with a strong curriculum base and competent faculty allow students of Concordia University to compete on a national level with other graduate students/colleges. Students interested in pursuing need to know that Concordia University is an institution of high academic standards and an excellent institution of choice."
