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.

Centre Student Reviews

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: 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 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.
