What is your overall opinion of this school?

I do really like what they have here. It is a good way to start of college and then go from here to another big place. I enjoy It because typically classes are not super high and it is easy to go talk with the professors about comments or concerns. Most of the teachers are great about making time for students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have had an amazing experience at this school! There is always extra support when you need it and tutors available every day. There are many clubs to join and friends and connections to make. Small class sizes make it easier to get the help that you need in a timely manner. nice small campus that has a mix of old and new buildings, very clean. Student housing available to those in need.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy attending the Centralia College. The professors are always willing to help in any possible way, and there are free tutoring services for most of the classes that I have taken. It's super easy to navigate around the campus and there are always people willing and ready to help you with any questions that you may have.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy Centralia College. I have been helped the entire way, through applying and deciding my classes. I am able to talk to my professors and advisers very easily. I know that there is someone in the office there to help whenever I need it. I feel a lot of support and commitment form the staff. The classroom environment is very welcoming and engaging. This college is a great school to start, they offer many great classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it's a really great school and has wonderful programs. They have some state of the art facilities, awesome classes, and is very affordable. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to start out at a community college then transfer or even just earn their associates degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall a decent community college. There's been a few teachers I didn't like but you'll find that anywhere. Protip, don't take Michael Threapleton's math class, most of the students there when I took it had to retake with a different teacher. I was Running Start so I don't know how the financial aid office is, or any of the regular advisors, but the Running Start advisor's really great.

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

When you are given the oppertunity to take part in the Running Start program, given the chance to earn both college and high school credits beginning your junior year, choosing to do it will be the best choice you ever made. Your only expenses are class fees and books, if you begin your junior year you can walk away with your diploma and AA by the end of your senior year, you have more flexibility to work part time since you will not be in class as long as high school and starting your transition out of high school first with a community college and then to a university helps make the transition so much easier and smoother. You can still participate in any high school activities just as well as the college, and you will truely regret not taking advantage of the oppertunity while you have the chance. If you choose to wait until you graduate, Centralia College is still a great place to begin your jouney into the "real world", helping you figure out where you want to be and what you have to do to get there, while at the same time being affordable.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Before attending Centralia College, you attend CC101, which is like an orentation. During this, I feel like I was given all the information, tours etc that I needed and then some. Along with news and information posted around campus, there really isnt anything that you can't easily figure out. Honestly, I was given all the information I needed to know before coming to this school and cannot think of anything I wish I had known.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I am a Centralia College Running Start student, and it is a great program. I really think high school juniors and seniors should take advantage of this great program. I will be graduating with my AA this year. Aside from Running Start students, anyone who is just trying to figure out which career path to choose still would find success in this school, and likely will have a decision made in what they want to do.

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

The advice I would give myself if I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior would be to not hold back. Use the oppertunity of going to college to reach out and grab hold of all different types of oppurtunites. There is so very much to be offered at college and you really have to step out and reach for it. I would tell myself also to not lose sight of who you are and embrass it fully. Once you step out of that high school and onto the college campus it doesn't matter any more what you did in high school, it matters who you are. People aren't going to say to you "Oh you were a homecoming queen." or "You had a great game last night" You will no longer be what you do, but you will have the chance to be truley who you want to be and grown in that. The last thing I would tell myself is college isn't as easy has high school, you gotta work kid.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known all the oppertunites that Centralia College offered. Now that I am at Centralia College and am able to see all the oppurtunites that it offers for its students I wisht that I would have taken more advatage of it when I first started coming to the school.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Centralia College is really great, but the worst thing about it is the fact that because it is a commuter school it is hard to get students involved and active in campus activities.

Describe the students at your school.

The classmates are diverse....they are old, young, male, female, dark skinned, light-skinned, accented, colorful......some are eager, yet some are apathic, which unforunately comes with a public community college as well.

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

I would have to talk to myself in 10th Grade. I would say, Oh honey, don't give up now. Let me tell you what I've seen, it gets so much better, so different. See all these cliques now? They won't be around soon. See all your peers that just don't care? I know its frustrating now, but soon you'll find so many people who care as much as you do about grades, people who actually achieve grades as high as you do, you'll find study partners, you'll find people as eager as you are! Start planning now, because its not up to anyone but you. No one but you to decide your classes, no one but you to make your advising appts., no one but you to fill out the financial aid paperwork. Oh....and that orientation class? Take it! It will take you around campus, meet the important people and depts. at the school, and give you the chance to have any question answered you may have. Start soon, use the people you know there already, be pro-active, and ALWAYS trust yourself that you deserve this and you can do this.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Yikes! No one. This school accompanies ANYONE....it has a vast diversity....international students from around the world, and in my own classes so far I've met 16 year olds in Running Start, and 60+ year old men trying to get back into business for themselves. They even cater to Spanish only speaking people, holding orientations to help usher them into english classes and the workforce. All at this tiny, but well respected Community College in Centralia, WA. I would shudder at the thought of ANY public school not accompaning all types of people.
