            2008-2012, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

            Centre allowed me to build a solid foundation to explore my life's aspirations. Through learning in a small environment and studying abroad, Centre is the number on spot for a student who loves individual learning with the support of world renowned professors.

          • Testimony
            1984-1987, Bachelor of Arts (BA)

            Centre invests in their students. My first day on campus as a freshman, Dean Mount walked up and welcomed me to Centre. He already knew my name and that I was member of the soccer team. I quickly learned that I was part of a community. The student/faculty ratio provided me the learning environment I personally needed to succeed. I also took advantage of the opportunity to study abroad. I now have two teenage kids. My wife, a Centre graduate, and I will strongly encourage both our children to consider attending the college that means so much to us.
