El Centro College West Campus

Be Involved. Ask Questions. Don't Give Up.

Programs and Services

Students who GET INVOLVED in college life are more likely to succeed in their studies and are LESS LIKELY TO DROP OUT. Notable researchers in high education maintain that campus activities can be inside tracks to college success. It's our job to help eliminate ALL barriers and reinforce positive attributes that lead to student success.
