The Erma Byrd Center has a Marketplace where you can grab sandwiches, drinks, and snacks. There is also seating available to eat.

While there is not an official counseling center at the Erma Byrd Center, all students attending Concord have the priviledge of receiving free counseling services. If you are attending at the Beckley Location, you can either receive counseling via telehealth, or a counselor can be sent to campus for you.

Chess Club – The Concord University Chess Club meets at our Beckley Location Thursdays from 4-8pm in room W35. For more information, please visit our Facebook page or contact R. Keith Lilly.

Student Government Association – While SGA meetings are held on the Athens Campus (Thursdays at 4pm in Conference Room AB, on the 3rd floor of the Jean & Jerry Beasley Student Center), there is still plenty that a student attending at our Beckley Location can do to be involved with this organization! The SGA’s Beckley Committee seeks to keep students at the Erma Byrd Center connected with the main campus of Concord University and is open to new members. SGA also has a Zoom link for their meetings if you would like to attend virtually. Contact the SGA to learn more!
