Centre College is a good school if you are an athlete or in Greek life. Otherwise, it's not a good fit. The student life office isn't very helpful and the town is way too small. The only good thing about the school is study abroad. If I could do college again, I would not have applied to Centre.

Pitzer is good in terms of its collaboration with the other colleges. Academic things are also great, but in terms of the political atmosphere on campus, it's not the best place for moderates and conservatives. Sometimes, we could feel uncomfortable dealing with the issues on campus.
