OUR LOCATION
LOCATED IN HISTORIC DANVILLE, KENTUCKY
Danville has been rated among America’s 100 best
small towns. Founded in 1784 and with a population
of 16,300, it is 40 minutes from Lexington, 90
minutes from Louisville, and 120 minutes from
Cincinnati. Downtown (within walking distance of
campus) offers shops, locally owned restaurants,
and a regional medical center.
THE CAMPUS
Our 152-acre campus is mostly Greek Revival (red
brick and white columns), and includes 15 buildings
in the National Register of Historic Places. Among
a number of new LEED-certified buildings are
Brockman Residential Commons (2012) and a
major science addition (2010). The South Fields
expanded our athletic facilities (2013).
WHY C-E-N-T-R-E?
When we were founded—in 1819—CentRE was the
standard spelling, and we were in the “centre” of
the state.
