Centralia College Reviews

Centralia College is an excellent school to attend! Being the oldest continually open community college in Washington state since 1929, the faculty today are genuinely concerned how you are learning and progressing toward your final goal, whether that goal is a GED, an Associates Degree, Bachelors Degree or employment training. The school offers daycare at no charge, endless tutoring in various forms, amongst other assistance, making sure the student is advancing academically and personally, reducing dropout rates. Smaller class size makes it much easier to access the instructor when needed. There is also always some kind of activity going on somewhere on campus that makes the student feel even more of an important part of the college and not just a number.
Review Centralia College
Centralia College offers many great associate as well as a couple bachelor degrees. The staff and faculty are helpful and knowledgeable. Sports, clubs, music, and other activities makes the campus community worth it. Spring fest! They have a new science center and are building a new student center. Campus is clean and lovely in the fall and spring. And, the Centralia College Foundation offers exceptional scholarships for their students. Centralia is affordable, educational, and located in a convenient location.
I love the time I have already spent at my school! After meeting my professors, I knew I was going to grow in the knowledge I had already gained from my high school years. The advisers and counselors were extremely helpful in my decision of what I wanted to major in. They looked at my grades, and looked into my personal life after lots of discussion with me and helped me come to the best choice, and it is one I am very comfortable with.
