4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: so far, I really like my classmates

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am a returning student. I really loved the culinary program, but there is absolute zero help and knowledge in financial aid and admittance. I wish I had started 4 months earlier in my aid process.

Overall Experience: Go check us out and our "critical thinking" skills.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a good college to get your basics down period. Please consdier completing your associates otherwise the money, lets say you got a full ride with FASFA, will NOT be reimbursed to the college if you just transfer out with out completing your associates. It'll be in the eyes of the government you'll just be a drop out and they'll not pay the college the FASFA money you used at that college. And after experiencing this school with its amazing staff (like honestly some of them should be full time professors at a highly credited University...) and friendly overall environment why won't you want to pay for their work done? I say community college is a good option not just a under table for slackers who didn't choose in high school. It gives you different prescriptive of life, but not a full commitment and pressures that the university package comes with. For ones unsure what directions to go in life, don't have a year of vacation after high school your not getting any younger, just start your basics and explore your options

Online Courses: Basic online classes are worked usually via Blackboard- "ecampus" site or on the textbook's site. Most teachers I've done online had their class in order but may depend on what teacher you choose cause i have hear of horror story from other students of disorganized professors.

Tuition & Financial Aid: ***Any changes done to your FASFA online will mean you must RESEND your application

***Just cause your parents might not have a social security number but do taxes somehow, DON'T let the FASFA personal tell you you can't apply. Same happen to me but there is a way! They've recently been learning how to do so. Just have patience and complete it!

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Just for your basics? It's just community college after all.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: If you don't inform yourself and ask questions, you'll just be in and out like nothing.

Campus Resources: Community college athletics in the middle of downtown? Not much from what I've seen as far as a basic gym for students open certain hours and a swimming class that takes place at the YMCA somewhere down the street. There's a yoga credit classes as well others things but just basic, but hey its community college.

The student center is really between the small art gallery and lunch area so it's easily hidden unless someone were to point it out to you.

Library is basic and a descent size, everyone respects privacy and quietness for the students who nap there.

I see some activities done weekly by the end of a semester in the so call "Student center" area which sometimes might be popping or just filled in by the members who support the club's ideals.

In general I put El Centro's aesthetic above the other possible DCCCD colleges open to me cause of the area is walkable to do other actives AFTER class. The Dallas Museum of Art and other galleries/ museums aren't that far off from a quick DART ride and walk. As well as new business opening by, don't be afraid to explore your area than JUST the Bank of America's underground lunch area. Promise you won't be disappointed!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: One thing that would make me rethink about coming to El Centro is the advisers, they are not the friendliest or most helpful people in the school. I personally feel like they have no idea what they are doing there themselves.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some professors are just not clear enough about their course. I feel like sometimes they do not even know what they are talking about and i just can't say this about the professors it is also the advisers which are honestly terrible.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The quality of employers recruiting on campus is pretty bad you do not see any interaction from employers with any students.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: There is a lot of diversity in this school which is perfectly fine with me because high school was just like this. It is different in the sense of peoples sexual orientation but it is something that really does not bother me as much as I though it would.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I personally have not checked out financial aid because I feel like I won't qualify for any help but I do know of a lot of people who have benefited from this sort of help. Which is great. I also believe the cost of used books or in this case any books should be so high.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: To be fairly honest with you I have no idea what this question is asking. It would be nice if you could elaborate some more on the specific question.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The main building could use a little updating and more areas to sit to do homework would be great.
