What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great community college and most teachers are willing to help if we need anything. There is a wellness center across the street which helps keep us in shape. There are many workshops gooing on and there is a bookstore inside which helps us buy school utensils.

I attend El Centro College as apart of a dual credit program at Skyline High School. When I graduate from high school I will graduate from El Centro with a visual merchandising certificate. I love El Centro. I think the part I love the most is the location, its in Downtown Dallas, everything just looks so nice...

Great opportunity for me to attend. Everyone is nice and friendly. Whenever I need help someone is there to help me. I will be back in summer two. The teachers will help guide you. They help you understand homework more. They show you different ways as to you learning. They give you serval ways to learn. If you need to talk with a counselor your teacher will help you out with that.

This college is one that contains a professional atmosphere and provides a great learning environment to all students. There is plenty of locations to do regular studying and also other locations with space for social interactions. Also, there is always a very supportive system professors that genuinely want to help you succeed and learn when within and outside the classroom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Having a campus in the city is pretty cool. You get to experience the city life and its over ll interesting being by el centro everyday. The teachers at El Centro are overly great and very helpful. The staff can some times lack connections in terms of knowing the majors well or they may lack information at times. However, they're sweet and can be very helpful as well. The campus security is pretty attentive but sometimes it can be easy to slip in the campus. However they have enough places where one can study and work on homework. The other students are nice and nobody ever really gets into fights or anything crazy. This college is easy to adjust and work with, and its very comfortable to be in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

El Centro Community College is a great college that offers many different opportunities for students. Many great events and programs are associated with this 50+ year old institute. I participate in a program that empowers students to gain professional soft skills and hard skills that are currently needed in Corporate America today. As a Year Up student, I take El Centro classes that are crafted around improving the knowledge and skills of entry-level corporate employees. As an El Centro College student, I love the ease of access in locating my classes in the beginning of the semester, and the skill of the instructors I sit in front of. El Centro College has instructors who understand more than one learning style and use multiple methods to effectively teach the curriculum given to them. Communication is no difficult task for this institution. Email, texting, calling, voicemails, you name it! El Centro College is very open to its students when it comes to notifying us about upcoming events and even a confirmation email of an assignment you have submitted through Blackboard. There are many different job fairs and employment opportunities at El Centro College. This shows that while college may be expensive, El Centro is willing to support its students in getting their education by offering jobs for its students at least once a month. Last but certainly not least, the level of availability each individual teacher has is tremendous. If I email any professor about anything at any time, they will either respond immediately, or within the next hour.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Since it is located downtown, there are a lot of interesting places to go to; however, there is no free parking so you are better off taking the train or bus. A plus for this community college is that you do get a DART pass so you can ride any public transit in the region for free, which is pretty cool. The classrooms might not have the fanciest technology but overall possess pretty cool stuff. There are a lot of computer labs to work in if you don't have a computer at home. There are Supplemental Instructors and tutors on campus if you ever get stuck. There are some clubs, but they might not meet at a time that works with your schedule, so it's pretty difficult to meet new people that way. However, classmates and professors are friendly; the campus is very diverse and accepting of people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, etc.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are some great professors there that really connect with you. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. Despite there being shootings at El Centro I do not feel unsafe there. There is more security now and very strict on ID badges. The only problem I have is the location of the main Campus. Since it is in downtown Dallas it is very busy. There is no student parking so we have to pay for meters or public parking. Also, there are a lot of homeless and it's not bad but constantly being asked for money does get irritating.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you're nervous about jumping into a giant crowd of a university. This place will satisfy! The professors are very helpful and there are many resources to help you if you're struggling with homework or even with a job. I really like the school, but the location is in a rough patch of downtown. It's not the safest place to stay later than 5 pm. The train station is always crowded with weirdos and the occasional weirdo does enter the school. However, Academic wise the school is great.
