I have learned valuable lessons in each of the classes I have taken, even my non-major classes! The professors really care about you. They will take the time out of their day to make sure you really understand what is going on in class. Most classes also have a S.I. (student instructer). The student instructers have taken the class and have done well in it. They can tell you the ins and outs of that specific class and professor.

    Central gives students professional opportunities that large schools cannot. The one on one time with professors is priceless. The small school atmosphere gives students the opportunity to work on personal skils, communication skills, and making connections.

    Central College is a great school for people who want a high-quality education. It may be really expensive, but it is mostly worth the amount of money you pay. In general, the school helps you pay for the most part.

    Central College has a positive and uplifting atmosphere where I know I will find the resources that I need to be successful. Although Central is far from where I live, it has quickly become a place that I call home because of the awesome, caring people that are here. There is no other college I would want to attend besides Central College.

    Awesome DIII athletic programs and one of the most underated academic private colleges in Iowa. I've only been in Pella for non-campus visits but the city is great. The people their have great pride in their community and school.

    Central College is amazing for students really motivated to learn, yet be involved in extracurricular activities and socializing. They don't emphasize much on athletics it seems, but the arts (dance, theatre, choir, band) are very strong in Central. The campus is so easy to navigate and the best campus I've been to.

    I love Central College! I think it is a great school and the class sizes are very small so the professors really get to know you. You feel like they really care about you and want you to succeed!

    It is a great college in a fun town just about 45 minutes away from the state capital of Des Moines.
