This year it will be 3 years being at El Centro College as a student. I have created many memories with friends, professors, and my advisors. There are many advisors that are willing to help students with their future one of the many things I love about this school. Another thing is that there are professors that are inspiring. They take time out of their schedule for any student when they need help also when they need someone to talk to. There many events that students can participate, and the school is safe they are many securities on every entrance of the school. Not just that, but they have alerts posters around the school where you can text, call, and email if you are concern about something that can danger your life or any person in the school. Furthermore, the best thing is that the school is at Down Town Dallas so there many places to go out to eat, and you can walk around. In my opinion I like the way they run the school and how you can meet a lot of people.

This school has wonderful faculty, at least in my experience! People are ready to help you whenever you need help. The atmosphere is very nice and there is an abundance of activities that happen on the daily!
El Centro has a wonderful diverse student body. The professors care about their students engaging in the subject and are willing to answer questions and even spend time after class solving problems or explaining a topic. El Centro doesn't have free parking, but they do offer free bus passes. They don't have many food options, just a Subway and snacks, but there are plenty of restaurants in the office buildings across the street. There are always officers patrolling the campus, inside and outside, so bicycles are safe on the sidewalk.
