Concordia University Chicago
Concordia serves 1,121 undergraduates and 3,005 graduate students. Many of these attend classes at sites around the Chicago metropolitan area, rather than on its River Forest campus. Concordia is a member of the Concordia University System, a network of ten American colleges and universities affiliated with the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. It was the only university in the ten school system to achieve the top tier rank on U.S. News and World Report's Best Colleges 2007 list.
