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.

I went here for roughly two quarters in college, and while I was always surrounded by people who weren't mean, disruptive, or annoying, there also wasn't much of a student life; I got to school, went to my classes, and went back to my home. I would of also preferred to live on campus, but they only offer housing for international students. The food is acceptable, I only rarely ate there, and I couldn't find any details on the party scene.
I do think however, that it will eventually grow to become a much greater college, especially with its recent addition to the building. The professors are amazing (Minus one or two) and the diversity is not bad at all, in my opinion it is a perfect stepping stone for many in the local area, and perhaps a larger area given time.
Every professor seems to know what they're doing, and many of them make it easy to contact them and get class materials. They also make a lot of effort to make sure textbooks are affordable. Centralia also uses CANVAS, which makes it easier to make up missed days or check grades/assignments online. The campus is compact and pretty, and has built a new building since I've enrolled. It's easy to know where you're going most of the time. They offer a lot of interesting classes, and the advisors make it easy to plan your classes.
