3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have had a relatively easy time with financial aid in that I received merit-based scholarships, but that is all I received.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The rules are very lenient, DPS is helpful for the most part as long as you behave, and there are plenty of places to go out and have fun without ever having to leave campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not many people live off-campus. There are apartments owned by the college that are the most cost-efficient and reliable and have great proximity to the rest of campus. Other than that, off-campus housing is not worth the effort or money.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The classes are difficult and time consuming, but everyone on campus is under the same workload and is understanding of stress. The professors are very accessible and there are plenty of places to study all over campus that vary in atmosphere.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I am an international studies major, and the workload is challenging, but the professors are the best you can find. The study abroad programs are superb, as almost every student gets the chance to travel abroad for a semester if they so desire.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The distance from any dorm on campus to any classroom building is so short that the local weather does not affect the experience much. However, like typical Kentucky weather, the weather is never typical.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I brought my own computer to college, but the campus has many available desktops for use. I have never used all of my printing allowance, and it is renewed every semester. For the most part the wireless is reliable, and technology support usually warns faculty and students in advance if there will be difficulties with the network.

College Sophomore

Transportation: There is really no need for transportation provided by the school. You can walk from one corner of campus to another in seven minutes (it has been timed).

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There has been an effort to diversify the student body on campus, but it is overall not very richly diverse.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The overall quality of the classes, professors, people and social life fits me as an individual perfectly.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Cowan (the cafeteria) is pretty average as far as the quality of food is concerned.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The atmosphere is very welcoming and the administration is very understanding of mistakes made by students.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The only problem with the guys and girls are that they like to gossip, and at such a small school it may be difficult to avoid that.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: At Centre it is almost impossible to not live on campus, and the atmosphere that living on campus gives you is worth the over-priced room and board.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a big sense of community on campus, and this rolls over to the sports fields as many professors and non-athletes attend games. The equipment and facilities are average for a D3 school.

4 College Senior

Athletics: We're D3, so obviously sports aren't huge, but we have great facilities even for non-athletes.

3 College Senior

Diversity: We are not a diverse campus at all, but I think most people are appreciative of minority groups. There are some people who are disrespectful, but that could be found anywhere.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: It used to be awesome but things have gotten more strict which really sucks. Airguitar used to last all day but now it can only start at 9pm. Things used to be a lot wilder and DPS has just gotten stricter.

4 College Senior

Majors: I'm in the anthro/soc department and it was great. Because we're a small department, everyone's voice is heard.

4 College Senior

Majors: I love the professors in the anthro/soc department. They help me with my life goals and have become friends of mine.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I love being part of Greek Life, but I do realize that some non-Greeks have a bad view of the Greek system. Professors also do. But beyond what people think of it, it's amazing to be part of an organization.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I got a merit scholarship of $20,000 which was great, but I wish there had been a scholarship in between the half-tuition and Brown Fellows.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: DPS is great until it comes to parties, then they suck. They are so mean sometimes. Luckily they fired the worst guy.

5 College Senior

Academics: Academics are amazing here. It's tough, but that's because we learn a lot. Our professors are awesome, and once you get your time management skills down the work is manageable. I get to take classes about the sociology of health and illness, poverty and homelessness, and family life. It's amazing. My professors are the best.

Computers: ITS support is great, but wifi isn't. In some residence halls you can barely even get any. Definitely need your own computer.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Centre sells itself as an all-around environment; being more than just an academic powerhouse, the school promotes self-growth through service and community involvement. The progression from freshman to senior can seem like just the change of another four years, but Centre's influence over the students is obvious. Centre graduates emerge as well-rounded leaders, activists, and the prominent who's who of their generation. While the College experience is something few would trade, Centre's best asset is the post-graduation benefits of the Centre Mafia of alumni that help graduates score hot jobs.

As far as the overall experience, it's amazing. Merging a great social scene with academics yields rounded individuals who are smart and fun. Centre is a place that takes away all the boring parts of high school but keeps all the spirit and fun. At Centre, each day is a healthy combination of work and play. Centre C is a few hours of class and homework blended with living with or next to your best friends, that hot crush, and your professors. Centre offers a remarkable experience for the whole person. It's life changing because years after graduation, you'll still keep in touch with your old professors, attend all the Centre events with other alumni in your neighborhood, vacation once a year with your sorority or fraternity friends, return for every Homecoming, and donate back to the College. The experience of Centre College is one that you'll appreciate, at least a little, every day, and each year is a little sadder because it's one year less you will have lived within a community of endless support and lifetime friends. It's the priceless experience.
