As a Central alumnus, I could talk about the school and my experience forever. I highly encourage you to take the time to visit and speak with the students and staff. Central isn't for everyone, but it is for students who have a desire to have a personal relationship with Jesus in an academic setting that will test you not only in the classroom but in your everyday life. The school is still working on program diversity, so there are not a lot of majors to choose from. However, Central does have strong education, contemporary Christian music, business, and psychology programs that work well with students from all backgrounds. Central is a heavily athletic orented school that takes pride in the accomplishments of their student-athletes. Home games create a wonderful atmosphere to be a part of. Also, small settings mean you sit next to the women's soccer goalie in your CCW class and the men's basketball point guard in chapel. The coaches are wonderful to be around and can be found at all athletic activities. Central's Fine Arts department is by far one of the best kept secrets in town! From the theater productions to the Jazz concerts, the level of talent and creativity is amazing. I think that my favorite part of the arts program are the bands that lead worship in chapel. The bands help to create an atmosphere of worship and light to those who attend. Not to mention, you might hear one of your favorite songs on a day when you really need it. As I said before, Central isn't for everyone and they are extremely clear about their beliefs and the rules of the school. This is a PRIVATE CHRISTIAN institution. Do not be surprised if you get into trouble for breaking the rules...(firsthand experience). Not to say that they don't extend grace, just know what you are signing up for before you attend. You don't have to be a Christian or religious, you do however have to have respect for the guidelines that are set before you. As long as you do as you're asked and have a positive perspective I think that you will find that there are people who want to help you in everything that you do. You will meet people who have a terrible opinion and outlook on the school and the people who are associated with Central, but my biggest piece of advice would be to make up your own mind about Central. Don't let others dictate your college experience (myself included). Do what you think is financially, emotionally, spirituality, and academically right for you.

of amazing and will go around the world to help you . But some and most important staff are on power trips and lose focus of what's important to fullfill their desires to be terrorists. All of the buildings except the gym leak when it rains. At roughly 30000$ a year its beyond a rip off. I felt conned when I left . Not all negatives. Met some good people but all the BAD out weighs the good one hundred to one. DON'T GO !!!!
