Jade Gravely '18

Beckley, WV

When it came to choosing a college, Jade knew exactly what she wanted. She sought after a school that had a strong academic reputation, was financially reasonable, and she wanted a school where she wouldn't just be a name and face to professors, but a person they truly cared about. Jade found all of that and more at Concord University. From being a voice for her peers on the Student Government Association to her involvement in Greek life, Jade found herself very involved in extracurricular activities at Concord. She credits the academic and extracurricular opportunities she was offered at Concord, that allowed her to come to realize her passion for the legal field. Four years later Jade graduated without any student debt, left Concord with a lifetime of memories, and now continues her journey in law school. It Starts With You.

“I will forever be thankful for what Concord University brought me- a 4 year degree without any student debt, acceptance into a great graduate school, and a lifetime of memories.”
