3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I just want to get out of Centralia.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I am currently not taking any online classes and I don't know anyone who is so I can't really say anything about it.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm just working on a general transfer degree, most of my classes aren't heavy workloads. They're about average.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: Professors tend to be knowledgeable in general, not all but most. Registration is a bit unfair because running start students get to register before students who are not in running start. This school is just a stepping stone for most people because they usually just transfer to a 4 year school. I haven't had any experience transferring credits, but I understand that they make as many of their credits as possible easily transferable so you can take prerequisites for your degree here at a cheaper price before you transfer.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The gym is available to all students for free. The library has computers available to anyone who wants to use them, and has places to study. There aren't very many campus activities and when there are, they're very crowded. Campus is pretty because it's green, but most of the time the weather dulls it because it's always overcast.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Free wifi, but it doesn't work very well for streaming videos. Printing on campus costs money, you have to buy a print card and it's something like 10 cents for a page. For most classes, you will need access to a computer, but the library usually has enough and there is a computer lab in another building.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body seems to be overall accepting of anyone of any ethnicity, sexual orientation, or anything else that might cause stratification issues. I haven't noticed any problems with things like discrimination. However, mostly everyone tends to stay within their own cliques and groups, they don't branch out much and all know each other, it's hard to make friends here as a new student not knowing anyone.

2 College Junior

Facilities: The only real unique thing about this campus is the clock tower. Aside from that, it looks like most other college campuses on this side of the state: green lawn and some trees. It's pretty boring. The cafeteria has good food, but it can get pretty loud and it's a bit small. Everyone pretty much sticks to their own group, it's somewhat difficult to make friends if you don't know anyone before you come.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Some classes are only offered every other year or during a specific quarter, and they don't tell you this in the brochure or online, so if you miss your chance and you need that class or series, you're screwed. Also, technical program credits don't transfer well.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I don't really know much about these services. I know the nursing program is good and diesel tech professors have good connections, but I think most people not working on a technical degree or a certificate are working to transfer to a 4 year school, so they're not really looking for jobs after graduating from here.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: In the fall, the financial aid office is really crowded and disorganized. The people working are very helpful, but sometimes you have to wait an hour or longer in line just to give them a form that takes one minute to photocopy and put in the file. Other times of the year is fine, but in the beginning of the fall quarter, it's awful.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Im happy and getting through.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: library and gym for everyone

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: trio office is great, not sure of other areas

4 College Junior

Online Courses: quick responses and well organized.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Had one vindictive teacher, stopped attending classes but did great on all my work. Was not able to get participation points waved.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Big mix, about what you'd expect.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Always goes through quickly, never heard anyone complain about it.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Good selection. Professors work extremely well with your and your schedule.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: They should have special services to pregnant mothers attending college who need extra help outside of school work.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professor and associate professor at the college that teach history are two of the most knowledgeable, friendly, community-active, and helpful teachers that I have ever had to interact with. They are extremely hard-working and supportive to their students, and provide ready support and advice for anyone interested in making history their major.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: It is easy to like the academic experience at Centralia College. There are many teachers and faculty that are readily available to help you with anything that you need regarding your education. The workload for most classes is in no way excessive and is directly related to the focus of the course.

College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have not had to deal with it much considering that I am in Running Start and Washington state pays for the majority of my expenses.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: One of the great things about the college is the resources that are available to students. Kirk Library is full of academic and technology resources designed to make them easily accessible to anyone that might need them. The faculty are always available to help with any needs that students might have.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The Wifi at the college is reliable on the one hand, but on the other it is somewhat lacking. The connection speed is all well enough for browsing and homework, but there is a constant problem with all streaming video which makes it impossible to use video resources that aren't directly connected to education sites.
