12 Student Reviews of Concordia University : Loyola Campus (Montreal)

  • I went here for 2 semesters before dropping out. It’s literally the worst shit you can do to yourself. Loyola campus is in the middle of bumfuck nowhere (15-20 min bus ride from Vendome metro station where you’re packed like sardines). The students there I have encountered are stuck up and the overall vibe is that everyone just goes to socialize. The classrooms are depressing and there’s way too many students. I was in communication studies. The most boring months of my life. I got depression from going here and wasted a few thousand bucks.. Plus concordia is the most DISORGANIZED school on the planet. Trying to contact admissions over the phone is as impossible as going to Pluto.

  • Decent Anglophone school in downtown MTL. Well known for engineering and business. Practical and career oriented. Ignore the bigoted idiot posting on Oct/13 (and under a different name in May) and see for yourself.

  • The last post by a certain Robert H is little better than slander against Concordia U and its teachers and administrator. I am all for free speech but a little background may be necessary. Just look at the following links and decide for yourself:

  • Despite having spent two years at Mcgill in chemistry, been accepted to engineering at U Manitoba…Concordia U inc placed me in my 3rd choice physic. I claim racial antagonism. I claim this as I ran into many there who were total idiots. The admin’n has an agenda and it isn’t about objectivity. I was a night student and then Concordia signed the performance contract whereby Concordia U inc received 54,5 million from the Quebec gov’t if they increased their graduation rate to at least 80 %. I was informed that I needed to start all over despite having 91 credits but I could be certain of much better marks for the same courses. I said this was insane and then the intense insults began. I was now a Nazi, wasn’t it great that my people lost the war, why didn’t I leave the province ? If my girlfriend didn’t want to leave I should just dump her ( I had been with her for 9 years at that time and now it is 20), why wasn’t I will to get unemployment insurance and go full ti me ? (illegal) Why wasn’t I willing to move in with my parentsto cut costs and then go full time because they didn’t want to keep the night classes going ? (I had been a foster student thus on my own at 18). i strongly urge white males to avoid Concordia university inc like the plague because there is a corosive anti white male agenda based upon the dictates of polital correctness whereby the races involved in past crimes are punished and ostracized and the reverse is the case for the preferred people.

  • A good canadian university for anyone wishing to get a marketable degree. I believe this university is highly under-rated due to fewer dollars allocated towards research. Concordia University is a “practical” school geared towards professionals. Sure there are more prestigeous universities than Concordia and you should apply to those schools if that is what you want.

    Overall Score: (2.90/5.00)
  • May not be a party school but the education is top notch. It is up to the individual to make the most out of their education experience. I graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor in Engineering and was able to find work related to my studies within 3 months. Today I continue to work in my field and am proud to have graduated from Concordia U.

    This is what this so called university is all about. Avoid it like the plague. Go to any university west of the quebec border or the maritimes or Mcgill or Bishops but AVOID CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY LIKE THE PLAGUE. Politics trumps competence there.

  • The school is awful. The administrators in the engineering faculty stopped caring about 30 years ago. You ask to see an advisor, and they tell you to go away and stare at you as if you’re wasting their time.

    The school is trying to develop its reputation, so it stopped caring about undergraduates. Professors want to do research only, and see their teaching as a giant chore. Many have no idea what they’re teaching, and just read the powerpoints from textbook publishers.

    They also treat their students like imbeciles. Everytime you submit anything, without any exception, you must sign and staple a 2 page contract declaring you didn’t cheat. I use about 40 of these per semester…

    Professors will tell you they’ll meet with you, then ignore your emails in the interest of doing their research.

    Most professors have been teaching for too long, and are well past their prime. TAs, as someone said, are largely incompetent, unable to speak english, and don’t make any effort to do their job.

    School spirit is nonexistant, and there are simply no girls in Engineering. I so wish I went somewhere else…

    Overall Score: (2.54/5.00)
  • Just don’t go here.

    I’ve been here for a year, and had more then my fill…

    Concordia has some amazing professors, but the student body is so depressing that you’ll want to take a cheesegrater to the face by the end of your first week.

  • I agree with the indian, or arabic accents. I learnt almost everything from reading and when I don’t understand the professor I demand and question him until I do …dammit I paid for the course. As for the hotness factor it really depends on the incoming crop of students.

    Overall Score: (3/5.00)
  • I’m an Industrial Engineering student and I’ve been to a few school. Unfortunately, this one is the worst.

    This school is very disorganized! Often, Ta’s aren’t even familiar with the material they are supposed to be instructing. Many of the professor have thick accents (indian, or arabic) and it is very difficult to understand them.
    This school is hard, grades are not curved, and professors don’t care if that means that one fourth of their class will fail and have to repeat the course.
    Student to teacher ratio is fairly good, but it doesn’t mean you are getting a good education. The students at this school are bad. In my engr 313 class, almost everyone was talking during the lecture, and some people were watching a movie on their laptop. This is very frustrating and distracting.

    Don’t get me started on the “calculator rule.” The school mandates that you can only have 1 of 2 crappy calculators and you must get them approve (by going to an office and getting a sticker). This is really ridiculous. I rules on calculator for classes should be up to the individual professor.

    I wish I had someone tell me how bad this school was before I choose to go to here. Already 2 of my friend have transfered out of the school after 1 year because of how bad it is. At this other schools I’ve been to, I haven’t met as much people that wanted to leave.

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to over generalize. I hear that this school IS good for Business and fine arts. I can’t verify that, but I can say that for engineering, you best find another school.

    And for the guys out there, this school I would give a very low “hotness factor” for people in engineering.
