Marcus Murrell '17
Marcus works to help new students through the enrollment process so that their transition to life at CU is easy, yet memorable. As an alum, Marcus knows first-hand the high quality and affordable education Concord offers, but that wasn’t all that drew him to the university. Marcus says it started in high school with his very first visit: “Although I was still in high school, I felt my presence was welcomed all over campus. This sense of individual welcoming on campus remained with me for the next four years.” Now that Marcus is an Admissions Counselor, he can share his experience with other prospective students. Call today and let Marcus tell you how CU is here for you.

Steven Kennedy '18
After high school, Steven joined the military, and though he traveled to many different places in his career he was never able to find a place that he would call Home. His decision to leave the military lead him to look into other options, and that was college. After several visits to different campuses, he decided that Concord University would be the place he truly called home. He took advantage of the opportunities that were presented to him, and according to him one of the best was the opportunity to work with, and give back to, fellow student veterans and veterans in the community. Steven is now a graduate of Concord and pursuing his dream expanding his own small business. It Starts With You.
“Staying involved in as many things as possible at Concord gave me a sense of belonging.”
