4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Excellent classes and professors, but the work is rigorous. I have opportunities to receive job offers, training, and internships because of Centre. For that, I'm very grateful.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Centre College is a place where I felt at home the first time I visited. People care about each other there, and not in the cheesy way. Centre College is full of genuine people who give a hoot about your education and future.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Centre is an amazing school and they truly care about each and every student.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's been rough. If I knew exactly what I wanted to do for a career, the school would be great.

If I had to choose, I'm pretty sure I would choose another school. Not necessarily a bigger school, but it would be in a larger town.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Very challenging academically, teachers are extremely knowledgeable and approachable, and a great fit for anyone wanting to simply better themselves as an individual. The students are serious about academics, but also know how to have a good time.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: Crushing it every weekend. and winesdays.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not much ethnic food or vegetarian places, but there are enough places to keep things interesting

4 College Junior

Administration: Don't be dumb and you'll be fine

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I got a decent amount of money without applying for anything, but the school is expensive. That's why I'm filling out this survey for scholarship entries.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Variety of places to live and they are all very good quality

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Dorms at Centre are actually amazing for college dorms. The freshman dorms are pretty standard and bad. Once you get to be a junior or senior, the housing options are better than most schools. The best options are Pearl, which is a hotel-style building, with suite-style rooms. Brockman Commons is the best option, set up like an apartment for four people: two stories, your own kitchenette, two bathrooms.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: If frat parties aren't your thing, you can find a chiller experience in Hillside or a middle ground at the Brockmans. And if those types of parties aren't your thing at all, there is a significant number of people that simply get together every weekend and hang out without alcohol or drugs, which is an encouraging thought.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The only things off campus that are considered ethnic are some bad-tasting Mexican cuisine restaurants and some fast food chains.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a lack of a variety of places to go eat, even with your flex dollars. The official cafeteria on campus, Cowan, severely lacks variety and even decent food on a daily basis.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The great thing is that it is a small campus so it is only about a five minute to walk to classes, allowing you to maximize your time to sleep in!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Really your only shot at off-campus housing (if you don't live in your parent's house in Danville) is 5th street which is still very great but limited numbers and a little ways away from everything else on campus.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Every college has problems with administration so it's no surprise that the student body doesn't care for them much, however we have not had any severe problems that lead to protests.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: While the process is somewhat difficult to get the financial aid, the college is very generous with the financial aid that it gives to students.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: For a small town, Danville has some pretty good options for dining if you know where you are looking. A lot of local restaurants are better than you think.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration is not overbearing. As long as you aren't being stupid, they will pretty much leave you alone.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not have to apply for my scholarship. The school automatically considered me for it.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties are all safe, and the school doesn't overdo it with rules. There are even a mixture of types of parties that are thrown.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: For cafeteria food, Cowan really isn't that bad. It has good and bad days. Sandella's and The Grill are decent, but can get old with time.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Everywhere you live is pretty standard until Junior year. The rooms are all decent, though.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Danville is beautiful, safe, and cheap. There aren't many museums or bars, but what exists is high-quality. For nightlife, I love the Beer Engine! Wish the food was more ethnically diverse, but . . . it's Kentucky. We are way meaner to the "townies" than they ever are to us. Most people seem to like Centre kids just fine.

For sports and shopping, consider Lexington, which is about a 45 minute drive. A lot of kids will get together and go to a UK basketball game or spend the day at the Fayette Mall.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
