4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a lot of help applying for financial aid and was explained everything very well.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is very little campus crime and there is a great emphasis on personal safety.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: We have excellent equipment and teachers available and the workload is not extremely stressful.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: We have very strong academics and a variety of majors available and our core curriculum lets a student experience a little bit of everything.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have not had any experiences with drugs on campus. If it's happening, I've never seen or heard about it. That doesn't mean it isn't going on, but I wouldn't know about it if it is.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are plenty of options for housing. Each has their perks and downfalls. The cleaning staff for the bathrooms do a great job. The Resident Assistants and Housing Coordinators are very helpful. The housing process is a little odd, but it is worth it for the nice housing.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The people in charge do their best to help you get the information and money you need. They try to explain things clearly and have plenty of options. In order to get scholarships, you must compete in Central Scholar Days on one of the three days it is offered. Based on your performance there, you will receive a specific amount of financial aid.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers in the labs are always kept up to date and running well. The internet can be a little slow at times, but runs well on the lab computers. There are computer labs in every dorm and many of the education buildings as well. You can always find a working computer if you need one. The wireless can be a bit unreliable but the labs take care of that. The college does give you a printing allowance, but it's pretty hard to reach it within the semester.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I'm a nondrinker and don't take part in drugs and I have never had a problem with peer pressure. The partying isn't that big of an issue.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The only down side is that sometimes the wifi doesn't want to stay connected to your laptop

4 College Freshman

Majors: Its good for the most part but some classes are pointless I think.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Its small town so there is very little to do around the community but CAB provide many opportunities to enjoy your college career.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't really participate in parties on campus. CAB provides safe events for the student body to attend.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks aren't huge on Central's Campus but they do have their own houses and aren't bad houses.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Its a Christian college but there are many different religions that attend. It is a private college which makes it more expensive so its mostly middle to high class students with some low income that get good financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our security workers have cut their hours for giving students rides to different parts of campus day or night. Overall it is a fairly safe campus though.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics are pretty good although some of the professors aren't the greatest and don't explain things very well. It is easy to set up classes and workloads are manageable. The SSS office helps students who are financially unstable.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You don't need drugs or alcohol to have fun.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Friendly people to work with. I got a lot of money.
