It has a great atmosphere! Alot of food options ( or coffee if you are a coffee drinker). The teachers are very outgoing and really do care about their students. The student life always go all out on holidays with either decor or little parties. All the students lift each other up if we are depressed, stressed or personal struggles. We all have a part of our community and we definitely give it back our part by going to college and learning new things everyday!

At El Centro, the atmosphere is very inviting despite being in such a busy part of Dallas. The teachers are very patient and willing to work with students to achieve the best. In addition, when there is time in between classes, you can check out the local scene, some of which give discounts for students. The building is well- protected, which was an initiative on set by the students who went there. In addition, you can meet people from all races and cultures, and the diversity adds to the experience, providing different and valuable viewpoints. Overall, the school makes you feel welcomed in this big maze of a city.
El centro college is a community college. It is located in downtown Dallas. I loved my advisor. I was in the rising star program, and my advisor was the best. She instructed me through our my years in college, and also helped me transfer to a university for the Fall 2018. The student life is awesome, it's a diverse college. Everybody is friendly. El centro tried to keep their students involved in their activities. There are a lot of places to have lunch near by. It is more secure , ever since the incident of the fallen police officers.
They have a lot of help for students who need it. They help you succeed.
