What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central College is the best of both worlds. It is located in a small town in Iowa, but has the big university feel. Everything is within walking distance, and everyone is so friendly. There is a vast range of majors, minors, and classes students can pursue.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central College is an amazing place. I love it here and I have experienced so many amazing things over the course of just one semester. I am beyond happy in my choice for college and would recommend this school to anyone that is looking for a small school. You can be incredibly close with your professors and get to know everyone on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central College is dedicated to the education of their students and the development of citizens in the United States and abroad. They want current students to get connected to their world and to the alumni and potential students. The administration is constantly trying to elevate the experience of potential and current students as well as visitors for sport or performing arts events.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have greatly enjoyed my time at Central College. The campus is small enough that you will create lasting friendships easily and be able to have individualized help from professors. There are not many options to live off campus, but on-campus facilities are nice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central College is an amazing school! If you are interested in athletics, Central has over 70% of its students in a sport and is one of the top performers in Division III in the country in many sports. It is not only an athletic school but an artistic one too. The plays are great and the concerts are full of talented students. Central has great professors who are there for you when you need them and outside of campus is "a piece of Holland in Iowa"! The shops and restaurants are filled with friendly locals and there is always something fun going on in the square. Overall, Central College has something for everyone and that I am glad I have four more years here! Go Dutch!

Central College <33

I came to Central after visiting the school and on the tour I knew it was the place for me. I feel like home and I have been so welcome by everyone even though I am from out of state. I love the people, the professors, my classes, and everyone on my floor. Everyone has been so understanding and friendly.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to really go for it at the next level. I would tell myself that time at this institution is temporary and the benefits of an incredible library to a state recognized laboratory, will quickly disappear. I would tell myself to trust in your interpersonal nature - you will develop life long friendships in time. Do not worry about craming all social gatherings in to one, your first, semester of college - we know how well that went, don't we Mitch? ;) I would tell myself to never pass up an opportunity to make a connection with another person. These connections, these epitomizations of what it means to be human have the potential to be life-long and bare unending fruit. Lastly I would tell myself to embody the scope and vision of a life-long learner. Approach every lecutre with humility and a desire to do nothing but be sponge. I would tell myself to grasp the concept and knowledge that you will never be able to understand every single construct of any one subject of study. AND THAT IS GREAT! It is a journey. Work your tail off but please, park your pride and embrace the unknown.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the close student to faculty ratio. This is so becuase it allows for more authentic learning to take place and an increased responsibility on the student - and the professor I suppose as well.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

One quality that attracted me to Central was the small class size and the student-professor relationship. At Central, professors are well-qualified, eager to answer questions, and driven to create unique relationships with their students. Another quality that attracted me to Central was the wide variety of things that I could be a part of. There is truly something for everybody at Central. The one thing that hooked me, however, were the people. No matter who it is, everyone at my college is helpful and friendly - something that I didn't see at any other college that I visited.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Some people transition flawlessly from high school to college. For me, it wasn't quite so easy. When I was in high school I was involved, but I was quietly involved. I lacked a confidence that I eventually found through C

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Central College is a school with many different opportunities that present themselves as soon as you walk onto campus. There are outlets for all types of people, whether you are an artist, athlete, scientist, or just somebody looking to get involved in the community. You are given the opportunity to study abroad in a country of your choice and are encouraged to broaden your horizons by faculty and students alike. This all being said, the only person that I feel would not benifit from a Central education is a person that is uninvolved and set in there ways as thus.
