College, making a trip is difficult for some prospective
students—which is why the Office of Admission offers DVD
The best way to get to know Centre College, undoubtedly, is to make a visit to campus—however, traveling to Centre can be difficult for some prospective students.
No more do distance, wintery weather, hectic holiday schedules and other impediments keep prospective students from discovering Centre, though, thanks to DVD “video visits” from the Office of Admission, which give students an inside look at life at Centre.
The DVD—which includes everything from interviews with students and professors to footage from both campus and study abroad locations around the world—allows high school students to discover what makes the Centre experience so remarkable.
On the newest DVD, viewers are privy to stories about collaborative research between students and faculty, the joys of living on campus (where 98 percent of students reside for all four years), the excitement and enlightenment that come with studying abroad (which nearly 85 percent of Centre students can attest to) and much more.
Students who are able to visit campus are strongly encouraged to do so by making an appointment. The DVD can also act as a “first glance” at campus, to be followed by an in-person visit.
While visiting Centre, prospective students often sit in on classes, meet professors and other members of the Centre community, stay overnight in a residence hall, eat lunch in the Campus Center, interview with admission counselors, cheer on a sports team and, of course, tour the campus.
Prospective students are also invited to schedule private campus visits, which are specially tailored to their interests.
