I loved how all the staff is so helpful and willing to show all the options open to you. It really influenced my decision to return for my second degree. The only thing I would like to see change is that I wish they had more programs available. Due to being a community college in a small town, they can be limited. But they are hoping to add more soon!

I like the accessibility Centralia has to offer. Not only do they offer evening and night time classes, but also online classes which makes it easy to complete the courses in a shorter amount of time. The only thing I would change is the readiness of the Centralia College admissions center. Most colleges that offer online classes generally follow up with a new student or inquirer and contact them directly; in this case, I had to go in and schedule an appointment to be seen for advisory in order to get all the information I needed. Other than that, this college suits me just fine and I enjoy my time here.
Running Start student here! CC has been afforded me an amazing opportunity to gain a head start in my higher education in a supportive, academic environment. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and the students are likewise very dedicated and friendly. Thank you, CC!
