What is your overall opinion of this school?

Centre College is a very academic and student friendly school. I was born and raised in New York, where the city legit does not sleep. Going to school all the way to Kentucky was a big move and I did not feel prepared. When I arrived at Centre, the vibe I got was friendly and was not afraid to get out of my comfort zone. I began making friends, getting involved with extracurricular activities and clubs. Within these clubs, I met many people including staff and other upperclassmen. Centre College was a very safe space, of course with some students who did not particularly follow that. Other those students, Centre is a very good school and I would recommend this school to anyone thinking of a liberal arts school and who want to step out of their comfort zone. Although Centre is in Kentucky, you will fall in love with the environment and find Centre as your second home.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy being at Centre College. All the classes I have taken are interesting and somewhat challenging but most importantly, they make me think. The only con I is that a lot of people are in-state or from nearby. They went to high school together and have established groups. It is not too hard to fit in though, you just have to get involved.

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

The invidudual attention you receive as a student is unlike any other college experience and helped me make life-long friends of both Professors and peers. The study abroad program is also consistently ranked among the best in the nation. You cannot beat the Centre Experience.

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

Transitions are scary. When you're 18 and heading off to college for the first time, it is normal to feel a strange mixture of excitement and fear that you've never felt befoe. This is your first chance at independence. Your first chance to get out of the town you've spent your whole life in thus far; a chance at new experiences, friends, places, and knowledge. It is also your first chance at heartbreak, possible failure, and hurt all while you're hundreds of miles away from the comforts of home. But don't be scared. While the uncertainty of it all is most definitely unsettling, you are in for the greatest adventure of your life. During this time you will make lifelong friends both professors and peers. You will get the opportunity of a lifetime to live and learn in a foreign country. You will find a passion you never knew you had for a subject you had never even heard of that will become your career. So don't take it too seriously, but treasure every moment. These are the years you'll look back on most fondly after graduation and for many years to come.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Those who want to be more than a number and take personal responsiblity for their education should attend this school. Classes are small, so "skipping class" is not really an option. But luckily, the professors and classes are so wonderful I never even wanted to skip a class.
