CC uses Canvas as a way to keep track of all classes so it's rather simple to follow along with your classes. Each class does use a different program for their online lectures, which can be tedious when you're switching between 3 different programs back to back. There's also the fact that while you no longer have a fee for some classes, it means you have to pay for the products you'd use in that class out of your pocket, luckily the college can usually give a discount on the products if they offer education editions.

I just started attending Centralia College recently, and it has been great! So far, all the faculty has been very helpful and the teachers want you to succeed. The buildings are also in good repair and the classes are the perfect size, not too big!
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!
