Community college athletics in the middle of downtown? Not much from what I've seen as far as a basic gym for students open certain hours and a swimming class that takes place at the YMCA somewhere down the street. There's a yoga credit classes as well others things but just basic, but hey its community college.

The student center is really between the small art gallery and lunch area so it's easily hidden unless someone were to point it out to you.

Library is basic and a descent size, everyone respects privacy and quietness for the students who nap there.

I see some activities done weekly by the end of a semester in the so call "Student center" area which sometimes might be popping or just filled in by the members who support the club's ideals.

In general I put El Centro's aesthetic above the other possible DCCCD colleges open to me cause of the area is walkable to do other actives AFTER class. The Dallas Museum of Art and other galleries/ museums aren't that far off from a quick DART ride and walk. As well as new business opening by, don't be afraid to explore your area than JUST the Bank of America's underground lunch area. Promise you won't be disappointed!
Review El Centro College
El Centro is a great academic learning place. So far schooling there, I have seen their sincere interest towards students most importantly. Professors try their very best to help student whenever and however they can. They make you work hard to achieve what you want and that's the best part I love about them. I would really recommend anyone to go to El Centro.
I am an Interior Design Student. I have been in the Contract Furniture Sales world for a great deal of time. I had to step back to take care of my mother who had Alzheimer's. After learning so much about the illness and working so closely with caregivers, assisted living facilities, I decided to go back to school. The program at El Centro is a respected one in the Dallas area. The work load can be over whelming but thats partly due to me being a single mother with a 9 year old.
