Amy chose Concord University for her education because she knew that here, much like the high school where she graduated, she could have a personal relationship with the people teaching her. Now, as an admissions counselor and Concord graduate, Amy works with students, their families, and area high schools to show them what CU can do for students who want a quality education. Contact Amy or any of our admissions counselors for one-on-one guidance through the admission process.
“I try to make the admission and enrollment process as seamless as possible.”

Interim Dean of the College of Fine Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences
Professor Mc Kenna is an interdisciplinary scholar in the history of philosophy, religion, and the arts. He is a poet and has edited the short run journal Holler: A Journal of Poetry and Prose, now part of the permanent collection of the West Virginia Culture Center in Charleston, West Virginia. As a professor, Dr. McKenna says his goal is to help students understand that the answers to life’s big questions vary, but that it is important to understand everyone else’s answers to better grasp the rich diversity of our world our place in it. Whether it be Language, Literature, History, Philosophy, or Religion, the Department of Humanities will prepare you for success in any field you choose by teaching you how to listen more carefully, to read with greater understanding, and how to write more effectively, all while acquiring a better understanding of the language, literature, history, philosophy and religion of the wider world. "We live in a rich and diverse world. The more we know about the people in it, what they think about it, and why they think so, the better we’ll do…no matter what we choose to do for a living.”
Carter is a second generation Mountain Lion and majoring in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting. When looking for the right college, Carter knew he would receive a high-quality education along with a personal learning experience at Concord University. He liked that when you come to Concord you instantly become a part of the Mountain Lion family due to the close-knit community created on campus. After graduating, Carter plans to attend graduate school and sit for the CPA exams. He believes Concord will have prepared him with this in knowing that the University is a recognizable school for preparing students for further education and career goals with tremendous success rates in the accounting field and many others.
“Concord has felt like home from the moment I stepped on campus in 2016, and I will be forever grateful for the time and memories made here.”
