El Centro College Reviews
The area around El Centro College is in a fast pace area. The school is located in downtown Dallas. In downtown Dallas, there are many restaurants that students can choose from within walking distance. El Centro College has great professors. The professors care about teaching their subjects and want their students to understand the subject matter. Some professors are willing to work with students one on one during class. The tutors here have taken the classes and helps them through the problems or any issues you have for your homework. El Centro is a very diverse place with many students, being different backgrounds and different ages.
As a music major, specifically as a future Music Teacher; going to a 4-year institution isn't that necessary. El Centro has provided me with amazing professors that truly find the time and dedication to guide me with courses I need to take for my future. The campus is very comfortable and the food options are endless. The only thing I would change is for there to be more programs like Rising Starr, so students can have all the benefits of knowing what volunteer opportunities and especially have a personal advisor to help with career development.
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!
