10 Students rated Centre College
Centre College is regarded as the best college in the state of Kentucky. Academically, I agree. There are several intelligent students and the professors are well-versed in multiple subjects, not just in their area of interest. Also, the professors have plenty of time to meet with students and will try their best to work around student schedules in order to meet. My chemistry professor even takes time out of his weekends to have review sessions before major tests!
Centre also tries to ensure that every student has a chance to study abroad, whether for a whole semester, for their three-week January term, or for the summer. They help pay for the semester trips, but I think some of the January and summer trips are worth the extra payment. It is even possible to intern during the summer with some of the professors, and receive credit for doing so.
Aside from the academics, there is not much to say about Centre. For example, I love food. I could eat all day long every day. The problem at Centre? The food in the Centre cafeteria is not the best, and there is little variety. Eggs, bacon, maybe sausage, fruit, biscuits for breakfast. Pizza, salad, cereal, and not much more for lunch. However, they usually have some pretty good desserts, such as cookies, cakes, pies, and more. Additionally, the cafeteria is a buffet, so one can get as much food as one wants.
There is no doubt that students will find friends. The social groups at Centre tend to intermingle, and so students have a wide range of friends. In high school, as is stereotypical, athletes tend to hang out with athletes, the "nerdy" kids hung out together, and so on. But at Centre, these groups mix and, even if you can tell who is an athlete or who would be the nerdy kid, the environment doesn't allow for the stereotypes to appear.
Overall, I like Centre, and although it's tough depending on your schedule, I know that attending this school will be beneficial for the success of my future.
I have no reason to regret choosing to attend Centre. There are plenty of things to do, plenty of people to meet, and plenty of work to do for class. My experience here will benefit my future both socially and professionally. Centre was absolutely the right choice for me.
Attending Centre college is the opportunity of a lifetime. The class sizes are perfect, the professors always take time to care for your individual needs, and the opportunities provided to the students all aim to prepare us for the real world. Centre college is not only a place of high quality education but also an institution deserving of great respect.
It is a small school and has a small school feel, which is good if that is what you are looking for. It means that your professors are very invested in you and have an opportunity to get to you you. Overall, I enjoy the academic environment, as it is a very academically challenging school.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Centre College is 74%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Choose Centre College if you're willing to put in a lot of hard work and time and you're looking for a great challenge and life-changing 4 years!!
Challenging, but worth it.
A person serious about attaining a great education. An individual who understands that enduring a challenging and rigorous cirriculum, attending engaging classes and interacting with tough, yet helpful professors, are great ways to increase your chances of becoming a successful and productive individual in a increasingly expanding, promising, but trubulent and crazy world.
Nasty Nevin. I'm kidding, Nasty Nevin isn't really all that nasty. It's a freshmen guy's dorm that everyone makes fun of because... well I guess you'll just have to come here to understand. The worst thing about Centre is probably Cowan. Cowan is our cafeteria and whereas it is not bad, it just gets boring. Small campus = small kitchen so there isn't always the largest range of choices. But there are two cafe's on campus with simply amazing meal options for those days when you just don't want to deal with Cowan.
The fact that the professors are willing to go out of their way to find things to engage you in the material. I am terrible at Chemistry, and I had a professor that new that I was struggling, so he suggested different websites, books, and additional problems from the book to help me. Also, he met with me several times to explain the material more fully with me, even if it were at times that weren't his scheduled office visitation hours. He worked with me and my schedule to make sure I knew the material!
Lazy, unmotivated, boring, one who doesn't like a challenge
Beating Harvard in football some 80 years ago. Oh, and we had John Todd Stuart as a student once, who may have lent Abe Lincoln a book..
Work hard and play hard, generally successful.
I wish I had known how much the teachers care for their students , and how much I should push myself . I didn't do as well as I could have during my first semester. Yet , I still got alot of support from my teachers and staff members at my school . If I pushed myself, as much as they pushed me to do well , I would have done much better.
I brag about my school's school spirit, exceptional level of academic ablility, excellent student-teacher ratio and good student-teacher relations. I also brag about how cool our president is and how rigorous Centre's work load. I also brag about how well prepared Centre helped me become for post-undergraduate studies.
I often also brag about how it is a common theme among students to do work and do it well. Slacking and not doing work isn't deemed cool. It's often frowned upon. Its not academic utopia, but its a great atmosphere for learning.
Academics are extremely important. We have Fall and Spring semester, like many schools, but we also have CentreTerm, which is a two-week intensive semester following Christmas break. You take one class 5 days a week for 3 hours, and the subjects range from the Art of Gambling to Philosophy Through Film. Some include the ever-rare field trips. CentreTerm is also a great GPA booster because Centre classes are difficult.
Student Activities Committee (SAC) and Student Government Association (SGA) have the most members and are the most actively involved organizations on campus. Other popular organizations are Diverse Student Union and Bonner, a service oriented group.
There is not tuition-lock in place and scholarships do not increase with the increase in the comprehensive tuition fee. By the time I graduate, tutition will have increased just over $8,000. That is a lot for a middle class family still paying a mortgage. Although the schools boasts about their financial-aid packages, they do not provide proper financial assistance.
