Concordia University - Nebraska Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Concordia prepares excellent teachers. Professors, who genuinely care for the educational goals of their students, are mentors. I also gained a solid base of networking with other professionals through both the faculty and peers. Concordia provides opportunities for students to grow as people, reaching beyond academic areas of each person. I will always be thankful for the education I received at Concordia, and would recommend it for anyone hoping to be fully prepared as an educator while gaining a positive college experience.
Please seek another school. The communication is very poor and then go out their way to make you seem stupid. They hold you hostage with financial aid and really will not go out of their way to really help you. I'm a graduate student with two classes to go and I won't make it . I asked for a Incomplete after being forced to relocate my home. I had a 87 in my class with two assignments to go . My instructor didn't want to help me and although the program director started to I was left with the same instructor and she pretty much flunked me on assignments I passed the first time around. I made a c in the class but my GPA was 2.99 which required me to take the course again to get the point I needed to stay in a masters program. Go figure. Now that I'm retaking the class independently, I can't pass the assignments . Rip off . I may be starting off losing have of my credits. to do so. Thinking of speaking with a lawyer. Stay Away and they are anything but Christian , at least with this black student. Sheena
Work hard but don't take it too seriously. Learn as much as you can outside of the required classes and use your time wisely. Learn to say "NO" to other plans when you have work to do. Be prepared for a large amount of debt.
I thought that the college had its pros and cons. I liked the fact that it had degree programs that were available at night. I didn't like that they didn't always seem prepared. They often hired at the last minute which meant the teacher seemed unprepared. There were a lot of adjunct instructors. The campus is beautiful. The people are friendly.
It is a very good school for education degrees. It is fairly expense, and is hard to pay off with a teaching salary. It has a small college atmosphere which I personally did not like, but others seemed to enjoy. The LTD program can help place you in a job, which is nice. Make sure you consider all your options, because Concordia is significantly more expense than a state university, and does not offer the diversity.
