7 Student Reviews of Centennial College : Progress

  • There are a few incompetent teachers at Centennial who are guilty of favouritism toward young women. As a young strong man I receive little to no help from teachers or e-mail response. If you are going to school through Second Career do not go to Centennial, as soon as my funding is up I’ll be taking my credits to George Brown.

    When I voiced my concerns with “Student Relations” I was met with an asshole who was trying to goad me into a verbal argument to gauge how I was going to handle the director/professor meeting. Now that the summer is over and I bought my complain forward with Security through the proper channels regarding The Violence and Safety Policy I have heard nothing.

    The entire summer I spent trying to resolve this issue with the teacher and director of SETAS was a complete and utter waste of time, nothing was accomplished. I requested to have a separate marker for my course work and I was denied, I redid the course load and the same professor failed me again, no doubt based on bias. I was provided with ZERO feedback, and the director was of no help accept to try and placate me.

    There is fuck all places to go around Centennial and the housing situation is grim and expensive for the students who live on res. as well. With little to no options in the vicinity to buy food you are forced to buy expensive cafeteria food.

    The administration doesn’t know how to operate their online registration system properly and as a result has to field thousands of registration fuck ups that the students end up paying for.

    You pay for “full-time status” which means you aren’t paying for your course load, you are paying for a minimum course load. So it doesn’t matter if you are taking 4 courses or 8. In a way it’s good if you can handle a large course load but if you suffer from anxiety like myself you end up paying more and getting less.

    There aren’t enough tutors at the school, booking fills up quickly and you aren’t able to book a week in advance only a few days, people ape the system and hog it so other people who are in need can’t use it.

    There are peer lead study groups but good luck finding one during a time when you don’t have class, as there is only one a day at the same time every day. If you live 2 hours away from campus forget about it.

    Having to take transit to this school makes it almost entirely unbearable, I’ve been so stressed I’ve needed to start taking medication.

    Don’t bother trying to get together with your classmates to study, they only want to study by themselves and could give a fuck about how you do in the class. If you are lucky someone will like you and that ONE person in each class will put their neck out for you but don’t count on it.

    Most people in this school are just out for themselves which I understand because the cost is so high and the teachers are such shit that it’s a make or break situation.

  • If you’re an international student and you’re paying exorbitant fees for tuition just to see an incompetent Canadian cleavage professor femi-natzi, then you’re getting RIPPED OFF.
    Canadian education is a JOKE. They hire women based on how provocative they dress to teach in class rather than what they can contribute to society.
    Toronto is one of the most femi-natzi cities in the world, so expect a majority of women to hate men.
    Centennial College even has all of those anti-rape posters plastered across the campus as if there was an epidemic of violent rapists on campus. Those flyers and posters are only there to spread hysteria.
    You will also be surprised when the love of your life, a woman, from your home country suddenly starts to resent you and hate you after attending classes from a miserable feminatzi professor who wants to dress like a street walker to class because that is what women’s empowerment is all about in Canada.
    Many of the colleges in Toronto are also boring as compared to the campus life in the States.

  • waste of money for international student. Racist professors including whole department of engineering’s authorities. They are just doing business not an educational institute. All my worst words goes to this department of the college. Professors are uneducated people. Looks like students are teaching them. There is no one to listen to something happening wrong with students. No services are better here. I wasted my 3 years in this worst college of Toronto. I know i am not going to get my money back. I would never recommend this Business to eat others money. In one word It is a big ” JOKE ” on a name of education.

  • Torontoized women are some of the worst breed of women on the planet. Some of the female professors purposely arrive to classes in cleavage tops and leg-baring attire, yet if a male student tries to pay attention to the board, they start giving out hostile vibes as if the male student seksually harassed her.
    I have no issue with the male professors in Toronto because they don’t dress as if they are singles in an adult bar or as an escort.
    Torontoized women are becoming so desperate for attention that they start to dress down and show cleavage when she is fully aware that she is supposed to be in front of a classroom. However, any undesirable male student is automatically confronted with bad body language by those female professors, but the female teachers in Toronto should know that dressing like an escort will give them the impression that they are hookers, but to be frankly honest, a stripper will not present herself so indecently if she knows she is teaching..Well maybe a few who are feminatzis, but strippers have integrity and proper social skills than these female Toronto professors!

  • Centennial College appears to be just another money-grab institution. I know of a person who complained against incompetent behaviour of some of the staff, and he was told my one of the Resolutions advisors, “Why are you here?”.

    This college appears to defend cleavage-showing staff who can’t do jack crap properly, but when a student voices a legitimate concern against a Professor, the staff at Centennial College harasses people by asking them why are they at Centennial (I had to tell this guy that the question is doublespeak for “If you don’t like it, leave”)

    Now think about it: If a college is known to have bad reviews, why would you attend it? I already told you that during summer I don’t even know if I’m at a stripclub front entrance or at an academic institution when I go on Centennial College campus.

    Centennial College can keep defending their cleavage-showing stripper staff members. I deserve a better education! It is such a shame that Centennial College does not listen to students and instead behave very arrogant.

    Centennial College and any other post-secondary institution in Toronto is fine if you wanna come to work dressed like a stripper and get protected from incompetence.

  • So I’m at progress campus, and unfortunately I had to miss weeks of classes, I have been emailing my coordinators non stop to let them know whats up. But no form of reply or anything. Like what’s the point of having an email to correspond to with your instructors to inform them of emergencies if they won’t even look at your emails , because its not worthy. I am very annoyed, worried, and frustrated. Idomt know if I’m going overboard but what can I do. I left voicemail for the Bussiness coordinator or w.e but did not call back or anything. Smh I feel like I am writing to a brick wall, I feel like giving up . my situation that has made me not able to go to classes is non life threatening and I’m not I’ll, but does this mean I shouldn’t be given a chance to catch up on missed work. Missing classes is beyond my control. And if I could bring my child to the classes I would. Because it seems like only if your sick and dying that’s when or maybe your emails would be replied to.

  • In my experience at Centennial College, I have observed and witnessed prejudices not only from fellow students but from faculty members such as gatekeepers of facilities, and member of the student associations.

    I notice that most students that go there are not from the surrounding areas of East/North York- rather they seem to come from suburban towns and various locations part of the GTA. Some of them are very prejudice towards Muslims, church oriented people. I have witnessed Christianity and at it’s worst with in the student population in a form of bullying and demoralization- they made fun of people’s identity, places of origin, religion and names. Also, they made funny accents that resemble immigrants. The funny thing is most immigrants at CCC are Christians themselves, e.i Hispanics/Latinos, Africans, west Indians, east Europeans, Iranians, and Turkish.

    There are also Americans here and I have no idea why they are here but I do know they are people that did not accept the change that has taken place in America (African American presidents) which is worst behavior and treatment for us as Canadians by these foreign students who have an attitude towards Islam.

    These students get others in trouble for saying “grow up” yet roll weed and drink inside labs and they do not get in trouble – wearing big crosses on their chest that resemble medallions of the ancient Rome. We are constantly reminded by instructors, “in this industry you must be able to work with others” so you may have to integrate in nonprofessional behaviors and if you want to remove yourself from them then the instructor says the students claim you are not participating in group work, so you may want to explain but then you will be known as a snitch so they really are one family and you being a Muslim will always be the outsider despite being born in T.O being trashed talked by fellow nationals and hated on by christian immigrants, they can do the worst things and nothing will happen and yet for making a statement you can be threatened by students and instructors for being in a file that will be reviewed by the dean leading to your dismissal and removal from school property.

    The faculty seems to be on the level- although the gate keeper for equipment and guidance (teaching) play favoritism and are very rude and not the same as she has been with students who are Jewish. These powerful people cannot be removed from having a full time job due to support from other faculty members. (they stick up for each other). This woman whether she is Jewish or Catholic is very prejudice and I wish I had a video camera at those times where I witnessed her behavior, and they do play favors with students, some are given opportunity for work in the industry (Film Unions, Studios etc), some are given access to $6,000 plus equipment for their personal use i.e church events, sports, etc when school is off, even faculty members utilizing facilitates in peak times or off time of the school year i.e- May-August for their own purpose, and the funniest thing is I had witnessed ex-students, 1 year old (graduates of the program) utilizing facilities from Centennial College.

    The “cage” place where the all the equipment is stored and managed and the gate keeper (the woman in charge of media production, equipment and “INTERNSHIPS” is prejudice, they will give you bad equipment, will play favors with each other and how they treat their own is different they how they would treat you, i.e. snapping, yelling, cutting sentences, accusations, demoralization and intimidation in regards to being suspended to rent equipment or having a chain e-mail of complaints even if pure accusation being forwarded to the dean, V.P and others as form of fear being put in the student’s head here at Centennial College at the CCC campus- this College is funded by MINISTRY of education- highlighting the word “ministry” not Governmental department of Canada so exactly how will they help us resolve this issue? Also, CCC is not Progress, which is a very multicultural and diverse campus. CCC is actually the opposite of Progress campus in Scarborough when regarding student race population and religion, Just look at the surrounding neighborhoods of CCC then look at student population – clearly you will find the difference- hate or prejudices that can be found in towns, suburban areas of Ontario somehow make it here every Sept-April and the faculty loves them and encourages them to come to the hood!

    The student association in my opinion takes away money from students who can receive better education with better equipment. Having ex-graduates getting a small salary from the College. Then we must consider the major problem in the program which is when some instructors would always come in late and ar3 not part of the student review every semester. We also experienced having bad blocks, being stuck with few students who always tend to fail – with part time instructors who really do not give time. The blocks of registration are full with in half hour and if you do not have iPhone or are logging via their internal system then you will not be able to access registration and you will get screwed despite the coordinator of the program saying all instructors are good etc = B.S.

    The truth – some students get better learning experience and others get B.S. – some worked hard to get into the program -others have internal connections -and this is not fair for those who are serious, there are many students who somehow got into the program, there are also others who just don’t care about education, they make noise, talk all through out classes, gossip and make it worst for people who want to get what they paid for -learning about Broadcasting and Film.

    I think being enrolled at a college in Montreal is much better then Toronto in this particular field or even America. There is allot of talent but it seems in Canada the same kind of people continue every generation, one after another- whether they are in the film union, television, radio or just broadcasting this might explain why the media production or broadcasting in Canada really sucks and there is limited room for innovation and talent.

    This is my second year at Centennial College in East York, Toronto, ON. The program is the most basic and the lowest cost to students compared to any Broadcasting Television or Film program in Ontario .I am very thankful for the opportunity to be enrolled in this program, the program coordinator is a great guy and over most of the staff are friendly. I do not take this opportunity for granted, considering how I was denied entry in Ryerson 2010 and Humber in 2011 for similar programs despite having more then exceptional portfolio and experience thanks to the people of America and now I hope for the change in Canada.
