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!

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.
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.
