Although Concordia was not my first choice school, I'm am beyond glad I decided to go here. The top three reasons why someone should attend Concordia University Irvine are: 1) The possibility for an early graduation, 2) a close relationship with the professors, and 3) virtually no waiting list for classes. It is phenomenal being able to be able to have these options, and you feel especially satisfied with your choice when you have friends who attend other schools that complain about not having these opportunities. Although the curriculum is a bit different in comparison to state schools, these three reasons alone should offset any possible disappointment.

It is a small university. The professors must be affiliated with the church in some way, so they often promote community cohesion. Professors will reach out individually to students who need help and do their best to encourage them.

  1. The class sizes are small. You're teachers will know you, befriend you, and help you both inside and outside the classroom. So many teachers recommend jobs to the students and set them up for their careers.
  2. The administration team is way better than any other school. At my community college I had to sit and wait for over 4 hours, just to have my counselor sign my financial aid form. At Concordia, my counselor knows me, knows what she is doing, and I never even have to wait a minute.
  3. The community on campus is genuinely friendly. It is easy to meet people, because the same people are in your classes. The school is beautiful with many grassy fields and flowers as well as a beautiful chapel.

The top three reasons someone should attend Concordia is if they are enjoyed a smaller student body, wanting an experience where the professor knows your name, and if the student wants to learn how to think outside of what is normal.

1) Location, location, location! Southern California is beautiful year-round, and Irvine is a safe community. Disneyland and beautiful beaches are less than 30 minutes away. There is a lot to do nearby if you have means of transportation. 2) It is a small school so you can really get involved and get to know your professors. Professors are always willing to meet with you to help you. They will know your name, and you won't just be a face in the crowd. Small class sizes are a plus if you learn well this way.
3) The dorms are some of the nicest college dorms I have seen. My favorite dorm features a walk in closet for each student!!

There are too many reasons to go to this school. If I had to pick three they would be listed as follows: First, students should attend this school because the rigorous education they will receive here will prepare them for the job market of today. Second, the campus is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Third, everyone who works here is there for the students and strives to help them succeed.

The three top reasons a person should attend CUI are these. 1) The campus is very beautiful. Located on top of a hill in Irvine. Gives you a view of the whole city. 2) The small classes makes learning a much personal feeling. As a student you feel more comfortable talking and asking questions to the professor. 3) The people on campus are all very helpful. Everyone wants you to achieve. They are always there for you when you need them.

The top 3 reasons someone should come to Concordia are 1) Religion- whether you are Lutheran or atheist, Concordia provides many opportunities to grow within your Christian faith. Church services are not required, but are encouraged for everyone to go. Most of the professors are Christian as well, so if you don't feel comfortable talking to a pastor, you can easily talk to someone closer, 2) Academics- The professors rarely give busy work and class time is always used teaching and answering questions students may have. Professors really care about whether or not you show up to class because they want everyone to succeed and get the most out of their experience at Concordia, and finally 3) Atmosphere- There is something comforting about knowing most of the people you go to school with. For some of us, being so far away from home, makes the transition or college experience difficult because of the unfamiliarity, but with a little over 2,000 students living on-campus, it is hard to not meet people. We have dorm halls themed towards bringing people together and allowing for people of different cultures to meet so that everyone knows that we are all in this together.

The online courses allow any to take them without living close or going to class regularly. The faculty will take the help you. They really do. I am not just saying this. You don't have to be a Christian, but the school's faith shows in their values and the way they students with respect.
