4 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek organizations themselves are great. The Greek Life Office is one of the worst I've ever seen.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We can get fired up about sports. Football and basketball games are pretty widely attended but other sports sort of disappear on campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My time at Centre has been wonderful. However, my time away from Centre has been even better. I traveled to Spain to hike the Camino de Santiago and spent a semester in Strasbourg, France. I'm now preparing to study museums in Amsterdam, Ghent, and Vienna. Study abroad is a must.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Since the campus is pretty small, I usually feel safe anytime of the day that I have to travel on campus. I know a lot of my fellow students, so it's easy to notice if someone is on campus who should not be.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are pretty difficult; however, most of the teachers are willing to help when a student is confused. Although, some of the professors tend to choose favorites in the class and openly show it which is discouraging to fellow students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My brother attended college here and he received great scholarships for his PhD program because of the quality of Centre's connections. It is very difficult to talk to the career center before I declare my major officially because they don't believe that I know what I want to do yet.

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty clean and well-kept, however more space is always a nice thought. I like that the freshman dorms are mostly put close together, so there's more opportunities to see fellow freshman.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I feel like the Greek community causes a lot of mayhem on campus with the excessive parties. I do not have any interest in participating in parties or Greek life, but I know many people who love it.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I work with the Sports Information Program on campus, and I always seen plenty of students supporting their fellow classmates. I wouldn't say that they are the most popular events on campus, but the girls soccer team excelled in the NCAA tournament and that was very exciting on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Centre is a challenging school, but it offers an enriching environment for students where they are able to learn from the best professors around. The school community is friendly and supportive, always encouraging students to do their best and be their best.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school and so many of the people I've met there. My roommate is my best friend and we're very close with our RA and many of her friends are now our friends as well. My professors are all wonderful and approachable and class is challenging, but not overwhelming.

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.

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.

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

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.
