Parents & Families

Parents' Perspectives

Here is what other parents and family members are saying about Concordia University Chicago:

At Visit Days....

"We really enjoyed our morning here at Concordia. [The visit program] was just as good for the students as the parents. We have visited other schools and have been received well, but not as personally as we felt here."

"I would have no problem sending my daughter here as I feel it would be a safe environment and growing place for her faith."

During Jump Start, the University's orientation program...

"[Jump Start was] excellent – for both parents and students!  ‘helpful hints’ [info session] for parents to help students succeed was very honest and helpful – makes ‘sending you kid off to college’ a reality…but with great hints on how to help them succeed!" 

“We really appreciate the warm and friendly environment at CUC. Everyone is very welcoming, and it’s comforting for parents who are letting their children go off to college for the first time. It’s also nice to have a chance to meet other parents and other new students. The Jump Start sessions are informative, and sometimes even fun!” 

During the school year....

"What I value most about Concordia University Chicago is the Christian staff. Knowing that my son is surrounded by loving and supportive Christian educators has settled my nerves as he is many hours away from home. By educators I am referring to everyone who assists with the student experience. Not just the fantastic professors, but also the recruiters, coaches, residence hall team, church group and food service. Every group has a sincere and loving heart in guiding the students to their full potential."
