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 am absolutely in love with the campus. At first it seems a little confusing but after the first week you get to know the place rather well. The professors are fantastic and the food is delicious. The kitchen staff is very nice and helpful at all hours of the day and our little coffee/donut stand is ran by a coach who makes your drinks the way you like them and always likes to know how everyone is doing!
