El Centro College Reviews

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.
Academically I was happy with their knowledge of subject and their way of teaching, I went to an small offsite campus and the only thing I would change are the things being offered as a larger campus would. For example: rally's or transportation, exhibits from art class being displayed. I felt left out. I would also suggest a pop up food store for the students who do not have transportation.
