Concordia University, Nebraska has been ranked ninth in the list of Best College Dorms in America and 19th in Safest Colleges by Cappex, a website designed to help students research colleges. The results were part of Cappex’s 2015 Cappies, a compilation of more than 1.4 million student reviews of more than 2,000 colleges and universities.

One Concordia student reviewer wrote on Cappex.com, “Transferring to Concordia University was one of the best decisions I could have made. The students, staff and professors, along with the citizens of Seward, are wonderful and caring individuals,” the reviewer said. “The classes are great, the social aspect is amazing, and there is no reason I would not recommend someone to come and live here.”

The university completed renovations to David Hall, Concordia’s largest residence hall, before students arrived on campus in August 2014. Renovations included remodeled common area kitchens and lounges, upgraded climate control systems, expanded electrical capacity, fire sprinkler system installation and improved lighting. All residential rooms were included in the renovations.

“Concordia strives to provide the best and safest place for students to call home,” said Concordia’s Vice President of Student Life and Athletics Gene Brooks. “We thank God for our safe and caring campus community.”

The other four 2015 Cappies categories include Hardest Colleges, Best Colleges for Activities, Best Value Colleges and Best College Food.
