Am learning a lot
I started the Music program this year, and I have actually learned more in this program than I had in all of my years in choir from 5th grade to my senior year.
Am enjoying being here
I wish the class wasn't at 8 am, but I love my teachers and how focused they are on helping you succeed. There are also lots of on and off campus activities that go on, put on by the SAAT club, and lots of them are free!
Bang for the buck
Community college means cheap! 12 credits (full time) is a little over $1,000, and it's easy to apply for financial aid/scholarships.
Tips for prospective students
Since it's college, keep in mind that you need to work hard. But that doesn't mean that you can't have fun, too! Get to know the people in your classes, join and club, and go to whatever events you can!
Great for these types of students
Anyone who needs to save up money for future university/4-year/private schools, and who otherwise aren't quite ready to leave home yet but are looking to gain some college experience and credits.

Centralia College has gathered and employed staff that are intelligent, flexible, and supportive to their students. Centralia College offers a large variety of vocational, and technical degrees with more individualized educational experiences for their students. The assistance I've received at Centralia College has put to rest any fears I had about struggles of juggling a family, a farm, and furthering my education to achieve my dream.
Tips for prospective students
To prospective students: really examine cost ratio of education expense vs. education attained and you'll see that Centralia is a great place to learn and grow at a reasonable cost.
Academic Rigor
Courses are challenging and provoke critical and analytical thinking. Class size is smaller and educational experience is more individualized and focused benefiting the students and the staff.
Dorm Life
Plenty of locations to call home right across the street and surrounding the college. Rent prices are comparable and reasonable with access to anything you could want within a mile or 2 of campus.
Food and Dining
The cuisine is healthy, creative, and affordable.
What to do for fun
Large variety of festivals, local museums, theaters, parks, shopping, swimming, rollerskating, shopping, hiking, libraries, and music in the park are just the beginnings of the fun activities to participate in.
Bang for the buck
Centralia College is the only college that is going to provide an affordable and individualized top quality education with caring and helpful staff.
Great for these types of students
Continuing education students, Non-Traditional Adult Students, Retraining Students and students fresh out of High School. Centralia College's Running Start program even offers college credits to High School students to get ahead of the game.
Clubs and Activities
You have an activity that you enjoy or want to learn more about? Chances are Centralia College students can hook you up!
Campus Safety
Wide open campus with plenty of policing and security in the parking lots. I have never felt creepy or unsafe on campus.
