Robert Newland first heard about Concord at a college fair in South Africa. “The combination of a strong science program and positive student testimonials made Concord attractive to me,” he says. Robert is a biology major with a concentration in molecular biology and a minor in neuroscience. He also works as a tutor for English and various science classes. He is the president of the international students club and PATCH (Pre-professional Association Toward Careers in Health). In 2019, he co-founded the university’s chess club. “As president of these clubs, my goal is to make sure every member feels connected with each other and that they give back to the community in some way,” Robert says. While he is far from his home, Robert says the people here have made a “good college experience into an exceedingly great one.” The small faculty to student ratio is something Robert feels all students at Concord benefit from: “The professors know all their students by name and always do their best to make sure they succeed.”
Director of Student Activities
“We strive to have an open door policy in the office, and to put ourselves in the shoes of our students in every action we do.”
For nearly 20 years, Andrew Sulgit has worked in a number of campus positions, and each one has been centered on the students of CU. From organizing student activities to helping organizations on campus, Andrew says the goal is to make sure your time at Concord is memorable. On campus, you can find a number of Greek organizations, free classes like Salsa dancing, and live musical performances, just to name a few. There is something for every student to get involved in at Concord University.
