  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

a culturally-growing campus with many opportunities. the student-teacher relationships are one of a kind here. there are so many clubs and networks to be a part of on and off campus.
Tyhgita from Lynn, MA
Centre College is a beautiful campus with very friendly and helpful professors. Students stay very busy with homework, but they bring in puppies for finals week. Definitely a good school to consider if you're going into research.
Sarah
My time at Centre College has been the most humbling and rewarding experience of my life. It has effectively shaped how I view the world around me and has influenced my future career plans significantly. The faculty and staff will take a unique interest in you as a student, even if you aren't the smartest person in the class. They genuinely want to see you succeed not only during your time at Centre, but also far beyond it.
