4 College Junior

Majors: I just started my major so I wont be able to say that much, but I will say what I know. The are where our Communications department is could be bigger and would help all communications students. I mean science majors get a science building, and since there are so many different branches in communications (Communication Studies, Public Relations, Advertisement, and Film & Video Studies ect.) it would be nice if the communications department had there own building instead of a corner of a building.

I do like that our professors listen to constructive criticism and suggestions from students. They aren't afraid to change the curriculum for the better from quarter to quarter. Also its cool that all communications students have the opportunity to go to the Annual Conference each year. Lastly, our professors have a variety of backgrounds in their fields and through that are able to give useful knowledge .

Majors: I have not had an internship yet. Sorry

Nightlife: The party scene at Central isn't as big as WSU but that's okay with me. I love to party and go out but I also need to focus on my studies so I find it convenient. Anyway, there are few bars, and a place in downtown where parties are held. Halloween is the biggest party of the year because its the Mansion party, which everyone looks forward to every year. I think the parties are fine because its college, parties are going to happen and people have a choice to go or not. Of course when people drink, things can happen and they can get sick but I've found that as long as you have a good group of friends with you that you trust and are willing to care care of you if needed then you'll end up safe. Then next weekend you go out, drink, and have a good time. That s just how it goes.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: out of date technology, amazing professors

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: old building no space, great community.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: The is no Greek life on campus, so there is nothing that I can say about it

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diversity on campus is very easily seen, and very well accepted. LGBT students are no different than non-LGBT students. It's quite nice.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have poked around a little but not much. But from what I have seen and heard the prices in town are not terrible, but being able to find a place can vary so you cannot be terribly picky. But most housing options that I have looked at are usually close to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is always some form of police officer on campus, there are always blue lights near by that are easy to get to. The major pathways are always well lit. As well as there is a team of students that are trained by the officers and help other students to safely get to destinations around campus.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The STEP program is a very unique program that allows students to interact more closely with professors as well as getting opportunists to participate in funded research or a teaching experience. The LLC's around campus are really interactive and form very tight-knit communities.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: We have wonderful buildings for each of the majors, in fact there is construction going on another science building. The rec center is fantastic and accommodates students that are athletic, not, or somewhere in between. The library has many resources available for students to help with papers, drop in tutoring, easy for groups to work together, etc. Campus activities are always well advertised.
