choosing to attend the College.
Many students choose Centre College for the personal education
it promises students. Professors like Mark Lucas, above, regularly
meet with students to discuss papers, assigned readings, research
data and more.
May 1 is the decision deadline for high school seniors to decide where they'll be attending college in the fall. In light of that, several current students recently explained why they chose Centre.

For applicants still not quite sure if Centre is for them, one option is to approach the decision process in a different way. Here is a “top-five” list of reasons not to choose Centre College:
5. Earning two majors or designing your own major seems overly ambitious. You’d run the risk of having your ambitions stretched. Centre students regularly complete two majors in four years or design their own majors.
4. You have your heart set on a few leisurely years of unemployment after graduation. Unlikely. Within 10 months of graduation, more than 97 percent of surveyed alums are employed or engaged in advanced study.
3. The thought of receiving a post-graduate scholarship depresses you. This place could really get you down. Our students regularly win the world’s most prestigious national awards—Rhodes, Fulbright and Rotary, for example.
2. You’re compelled to avoid famous people. You'd be trapped in your room most of the time. From movie and television producer Jerry Bruckheimer to Vice President Joe Biden to the world’s most acclaimed performers, Centre has a steady stream of internationally known campus visitors.
1. You have a fear of success. Centre could be your worst nightmare. Our personal approach to education enables students to achieve success that can only be described as extraordinary. After graduation, they feel so good about the success Centre enabled them to achieve, they lead the nation in loyalty (over the past 25 years) in their rate of providing financial support.
