Focused Attention from Caring Faculty
At Concordia University, your professors know you by name, greet you in that hallways and help you plan your future. In fact, you're assigned a faculty advisor as soon as you arrive on campus so that you have someone to turn to for advice about classes and careers.
With a student-faculty ratio of 12 to 1, our small class sizes allow you greater interaction, more individualized attention and the chance to develop meaningful relationships with faculty members - the kind of connections that can shape your life.
