Apartments Near Concordia University- Austin Apartments in Austin
Neighboring Austin's downtown and the University of Texas, Concordia University is higher education with class and distinction in a location that is convenient to students attending from apartments all over the city.
Concordia is a private 4 year college for men and women with majors in the liberal arts and sciences. Students can attain a Bachelor of Arts degree or go on to get a Master of Arts degree. Concordia is a Lutheran University, and is a part of the Lutheran University system which has a current enrollment of 19,000 students nationwide. The stated goal of the University is to produce our nations strong Christian leaders. It was founded in 1926 with a mere 26 male students, but first started accepting female students in 1955.
A smaller University, Concordia enrolls just over 1000 students a year making it the perfect place for an Apartment-ite to meet new people and get to know some really great friends. They are growing and anticipate enrollment numbers of 1300-1400 by 2010. The university itself is also expanding. In Fall of 2008 the new campus in NW Austin will open to students. This campus is over ten times the size of the downtown location. Both locations have access to close proximity to nightlife, apartments, restaurants and other hot-spots which cater to the fun and the freedom of the apartment lifestyle.
With 22 majors and areas of study among the Colleges of Business, Education, Liberal Arts and Sciences there are plenty of options at Concordia. The University also houses the Accelerated Degree Program for part time or returning adult students, which has satellite campuses in Houston, San Antonio, DFW, and Fredericksburg as well as Austin.
In 2006 the enrollment for undergraduates was 725, 93 for graduate students, and 399 for accelerated program students. There are three female students for every two male students.
Living on campus you have four options. If you wish to live in mixed company, you could live in Harms hall which is the University's only co-ed hall. Studtmann Hall, the women's dorm, is also available, while the men have Killian and Behnken halls. Many people find these options limited and with the cost of roughly $7300 they choose to live off campus in one of the many affordable apartment communities within the area for relatively similar or even cheaper costs. With somewhat strict rules in on-campus living at Concordia, living in an off campus apartment can really give a student some added freedom away from curfews and guest hours.
If it's a solid education in Liberal Arts and Science that you are looking for at a smaller school with some personality in a location that has plenty of restaurants, apartment options, and alot of stuff in the area...Concordia is worth a look!
