Central is a Christian community that is working to build well rounded graduates. It is not perfect, no college will be but it is the closest I found.
Tips for prospective students
If you want to be known as more than a number come check out Central. Faculty and staff will know who you are. They care about me more as a person than as a student in their class. They want to see me succeed in all of life as well as in their classes.
Academic Rigor
This school has fantastic teachers. The classes all set a standard of what they expect, after that it comes down to the idea of the more you put in the more you will get out of it!
Dorm Life
I love dorm life. The girls on my floor are some of my best friends. It is not uncommon if someone is sick in the dorm or if someone got hurt for my floor to get together and pray for them and the situation.
Food and Dining
Cafeteria food will always be cafeteria food. However, every year it is improving and they keep taking polls to see what we like and what we do not. At Central they are at least trying to provide a quality dining experience.
What to do for fun
Central is in a little town, so sometimes you have to get creative, but those memories are always more fun anyways! We watch a lot of movies on campus, there is always a movie playing on campus in at least one of the dorms. Besides movies and Netflix, the student activities councile and student development do a pretty good job of making sure there is an event at least once a week.
Bang for the buck
Comparatively Central is dirt cheap! I will be done with my sophomore year with only $2000 in loans. They do a good job of trying to keep college affordable. Central also has the Presidents Opportunity Challenge. The POC program enables certain students to work for the school in exchange for the majority of their tuition.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Two of Central's best traditions are two events each year, El Tigre and Mock Rock! El Tigre happens each fall, it is the equivalent of a male fashion show, it is FANTASTIC! Mock Rock happens in the spring and is a lip sync competition. Everyone on campus comes out for these events every year!
Clubs and Activities
We do not have that many clubs but the ones that are on campus are very active. Especially Central's FBLA-PBL chapter!
Campus Safety
The campus is small enough everyone knows everyone, so if there is some one who does not belong people will know.

The college was very good about getting back to me as I had questions about the application process, it was very personal.

The academic rigor is, form my impression from former students, moderate.

Dorm life is nice, however there are some dorms that are more studious than others.
Food and Dining
Great!

Am learning a lot
Central Christian College of Kansas offers a wide variety of classes. The professors possess much knowledge in their fields. The small classes make it easy to have time to talk to the professors. The art classes are tailored to the stage each student is at. The sports teams are close and work hard to do well. The music department has their own building for performances. The quality of academics is high.
Am enjoying being here
The small campus community encourages close friendships among students. I am enjoying the friends I have made immensely. There are always plenty of events happening on campus. These events can be anywhere from a night of acoustic music to an afternoon of intramural sports. There are also plenty of service opportunities for students to get involved with. The chapel services are also a great way to learn about God and connect with Him through worship. Vespers is one of the best events at Central. Each Sunday night, a student led worship service (Vespers) takes place. It is so spiritually uplifting and challenging. The speakers and worship band are all students. It is a great time to learn from one another and worship together.
Bang for the buck
College prices are always scary; but, with financial aid and savings the price does not have to cause anyone to turn away. At Central, Financial Aid is very helpful. There are many scholarships for students to receive to help with the cost. Once a student starts life here he can see how valuable his experience is going to be. From academics to student activities, the college experience at Central Christian College is definitely one of the best.
Tips for prospective students
My tip to prospective students would be to prepare yourselves to move from high school to college. Somethings work differently in college than they do in high school, but that does not have to be a bad thing. As long as you are willing to adjust, the changes can be made easily. Academically, be prepared for the professors to ask more of you than you think you can handle in the time you have. As long as you manage your time wisely, the homework can be done in time. Socially, be willing to involve yourself. The students I see having the hardest time are the ones who do not get involved on campus and are constantly negative about their new surroundings. Try to look for the good, be willing to try new things, and make new friends. Getting involved right away is the best way to make friends and feel pleased with your college experience.
Great for these types of students
Students who want to have their professors easily accessible for questions will love Central Christian College of Kansas. Those who want their professors to know them by name will love Central. If they want a close community with friendly people, students should come to Central. Those who want to grow in their Christian faith or want to learn more about God should come to Central. It is a wonderful place to enjoy a safe, friendly college experience.
