Centre is great, the best thing about it is the community created, how inclusive it is. You aren't just a number, or someone in a crowd of 100+ students in a lecture hall, where your teachers actually know your name.

Centre in many ways is exactly what I needed in a school. Originally it was low on my list of schools I was considering because it was in my back yard, but over and over it ranked highest on all my criteria. Academics, excellent. Athletics, NCAA competitive. Study abroad? Centre's forte. It was a small school too, and the professor's were rumored to be accessible. I knew these facts going into school as a freshman, but it was not until I actually was in the middle of the semester that I could pause to realize that Centre was all this and more. It is amazing how involved and committed all the students are; as a freshman I was impressed with what the students were doing with their lives. The academics and athletics at the school were stellar. I love the commitment to excellence that Centre has. I have two arenas of my Centre life that exemplify this commitment to excellence: GEMS and Centre Women's Soccer. GEMS stands for Girls in Engineering, Math, and Science. What is it? An outreach club initiated by I and fellow friends where young women from the college mentor middle school girls. We had such success in our first year we branched out to include the local elementary school as well. We want to address stereotypes and obstacles which prevent many young women from pursuing careers in STEM. As for the soccer program, I love to take any opportunity to brag about this team. I am a starting outside back who is very proud of what we have accomplished. My sophomore year we went to the Elite 8 in the NCAA tournament. My junior year, the Final Four. Every year I have been a part of the program we have won our conference tournament. This team shows me more than any other the commitment to do one's very best as a part of Centre College. My experience at Centre has been about becoming the best all-around person I can whilst using my own skills to impact others and the school.

So far my college experience is not what like I imagined. I knew college would be had but sometimes I feel as though what is expected is not able to be done. However, many professors here can be understanding and a lot of them wan you to succeed so they are willing to work hard with you with the hopes that you will succeed.
