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.

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.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Say goodbye to your soul before committing to this school. No one graduates with a 4.0, trust me. The workload, aside from Centre Term, can be very, very stressful. The professors, while friendly and helpful, often take no mercy when grading. Yet however crushing the letter grades can be, know that you will learn quite a lot from their brilliant minds.

Don't take anything too personally and keep an open mind and a stubborn work ethic at Centre.

It has been said that Centre is just a place to meet other nerds, and in some ways, that's true. Centre has a strong tradition of attracting academically-conscientious students, and it follows suit that, after making the cut, the workload can be strenuous. The challenging workload provides a full-time commitment during the week, but also allows for free time during the weekend, with some careful time management. Going to class, attending outside lecturers and convocations, and meeting with professors at the café for coffee and paper conferences are just a couple of ways to take advantage of the prominent faculty that are available for your personal benefit. Centre's academics are remarkably strong because they combine faculty at the top of their fields, who focus on teaching instead of research, and students who are willing
to learn.

The academic reputation Centre enjoys is what usually attracts potential students. Centre C also boasts an established practice of networking-around campus, it's known as the "Alumni Mafia." Besides the faculty and staff, who will do backwards cartwheels to be over-involved in your academic career, Centre's Career Services can land a you killer job. While Centre may not make any big party-school lists or have Ivy League credentials, its strength is in fostering an academic environment that produces well-balanced graduates with bright futures.

  • Get your 12 convos in.
  • Go to class, and do your homework.
  • Go to your professor's office hours.

  • Take good notes.
