Centre students enjoying a campus event


Centre is home to a vibrant student community where you know you belong.

We are a highly residential campus—including on the weekends—so you’ll get to know your classmates well. Ninety-eight percent of Centre students live on campus, and that feeling of community is often the highlight of the college experience. 从搬家那天开始, first-year students begin building relationships as upper-level students, 教师, staff and even the President help them move into their residence hall. It's easy to get plugged-in with groups, 活动, 组织, and the community at the annual 活动 Expo near the beginning of each fall semester. 


Take a look around and you'll understand why Centre students love their new home.
