Concordia University-Chicago Reviews
I graduated in 2013 with an unique degree in Women & Gender Studies with minors in Psychology and Sociology. The classes really challenged my thinking process. I was an older student, but it was never an issue. This is a private college with a public college feel. It is a small campus minutes outside of Chicago. The professors expect a lot from their students, but they will help you get there. There are plenty of activities to do. Go to the campus and go on the tour. Then, came back and find a student to show you around again. Talk to professors and neighbors.
Concordia University Chicago is in such a great location with so many opportunities. The psychology program has very supportive professors who encourage you to do your best. They are very helpful in your coursework and are excellent educators. The school has connections with many different internship sights that will give you the experience you need. The Exercise Science program is a challenging program, but all worth it in the end. These professors are also very encouraging and available whenever you need. I would recommend Concordia because of the people and location.
I am the first to graduate with a bachelors degree in the Pre-Art Therapy program since this program just opened in the year 2016. The financial aid service and career service are very helpful when it comes to financial stability. I enjoyed professors in the English, art and psychology department because they where willing to give advice on educational and personal life experiences.
Concordia University Chicago is a great school if you want to become a teacher. Our education program is awesome. But most of the other programs are mediocre. This university does a great job of recruiting prospects and making them feel important. Once you have been accepted everything changes and you become just a number. I met some great people during my time there but what the things I was taught I felt I could have learned on my own.
The education is exactly adequate. The school itself is very dry (both in recreation and in alcohol). Very few professors will challenge you intellectually, and very few students are there for things other than religious activities, or sports. Keep in mind, these are D3 sports, so you get exactly the kind of people who think D3 sports is something to be overly proud of playing. I ONLY went here because I had an option for a full tuition waiver, so I did all four years, but disliked most of it. Overall, would not recommend to a friend.
