Meningitis Information

 

A new state law went into effect October 1, 2013, that requires ALL new students under the age of 22 to show proof of meningococcal vaccination within the last 5 years.

 

Meningitis is a very serious infection of the fluid around the brain and spinal cord that can be fatal in as little as 48 hours and may leave survivors with permanent disabilities.  Therefore, prevention of this disease is imperative, and it requires early diagnosis and treatment.

 

Although no vaccine offers 100% protection, the meningococcal vaccine offers the most complete protection against bacterial meningitis.

 

All students under the age of 22 must submit one of three of the compliance documents outlined below in order to register for classes. 

 

In order to register for classes, all students under the age of 22 must properly complete and submit one of the following compliance documents:

 

For more general information about Meningitis, please refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

I love that we are in such a convenient location. Lake Travis and downtown Austin are not that far from campus, so there is a little bit of everything to do.

Sophomore, Pre-Nursing

My hometown is Sugar Land, TX.
The highlight of my time at CTX is definitely meeting new people. I was a little nervous about meeting my roommate, but after living with her for a couple weeks, we noticed that we are very similar. I love being part of a Christian university because it allows me to meet people that believe in the same religious beliefs as I do. I have met so many people that share the same values as I do and I don’t believe I would have had this chance at any other university.
I think CTX is unique because of the campus. I love that we are in such a convenient location. Lake Travis and downtown Austin are not that far from campus, so there is a little bit of everything to do. the interpersonal relationships that students form with professors. The faculty and staff genuinely care about you as a person.
The professor that impacted me the most is everyone! I can’t say that just one professor has impacted me the most. Each professor I have had has made such an impact on my life. Each one has taken time out to help me in class and outside of class as well. Each professor has made it their responsibility to make sure that I understand all the material taught in class. They all take the time out of their busy schedule to make sure that I succeed, and I feel very blessed to be apart of such a caring University.
My advice to incoming pre-nursing students is to take everything a semester at a time. I would say that if they look at all the courses they will have to take, there is a high chance they might overwhelm themselves. Plan out which courses they will take during each semester and then start from there. Study hard and give it your all!
The professors, faculty and my peers constantly remind me that God is always there for all of us. Being a part of Concordia helps me remind myself as well as others that we can be open about our faith and we should spread the word for our Lord and Savior. There is such a positive attitude shared all across campus and that helps me be positive and be a better person and a Christian Leader.
