Campus Dining: The campus dining is okay at certain times. Sometimes the food in the cafeteria is good at times. However after a while people get bored with the caf food. We do have a little place called Randle's on our campus. It's like a little dining hall. Randle's makes up for the caf in so many ways. We can get something quick and delicious then go on our way. Their chicken wraps, popcorn chicken, chicken nuggets, and chicken quesidillas are amazing.

Guys & Girls: We have very different types of boys and girls here at Centenary. We have the girly girls, athletics girls and guys, wild party people, gays and lesbians and so many more. Some are really attractive to sweet and handsome individuals. Our school tries to exemplify diversity in the student body.

4 College Junior

Majors: Even though I haven't had an internship, I do plan to have one very soon. I know that having an internship is a very important part to gaining a job in my future. I did have concerns about finding an internship but now I have assistance for looking for internships. Hopefully i will be able to shadow a psychiatrist or psychologist since I am a psychology major.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Overall Centenary is pretty famous for their academic program

2 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers are a little outdated and the internet is very slow. There is only one printer in the library and it jams quite often which is very inconvenient.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Security is constantly roaming around campus and I have never felt unsafe. If I just want campus security to walk me to my car all I have to do is call them and they will!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are very interested and involved with their students and strive to help them succeed. I have been very satisfied with my education so far.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The liberal arts curriculum demands brief stints of immersion in all aspects of study, which is great for the student who has many interests and isn't sure what they'd really like to pursue. However, some of the music degree plans were extraordinarily encumbered, requiring the majority of music students to regularly apply for permission to take more than 18 hours per semester. Other majors felt extended taking 16 credit hours at a time - which happened maybe twice throughout their college career. The workload for some majors compared to others is laughable.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: The dry campus concept was an issue that many students sought to undermine. This created a distrustful atmosphere as students tried to sneak alcohol onto campus. The policy was strictly enforced when DPS or RAs suspected on-campus alcohol consumption. However, the policy also created an unsafe environment for students who chose to attend parties off-campus and had no safe options for transit back to their dorms.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The student life here is great there are buildings just for the students like the sub where students can go and check their mail and play pool or ping pong. Its a great place to be a student really. The cafeteria is also one of those places that you would think has terrible place to eat but really the food is awesome.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love the program I'm in. If I could do it all over again I would it took me three times to find the perfect major and I truly think I have. I want to teach theatre and the only concern I have is trying to find a job as a theatre teacher.

5 College Junior

Majors: I went to Chicago for my internship. The pay was about 120 a week working everyday which is good for a summer stock theatre. I had to work back stage and acted which was something really new to me because being away from my family for so long was the most difficult challenge of all.

Most of the students that enter Centenary are looking for a school where they won't be just a face in the crowd. You can make a name for yourself very easily. Students that have enough drive can accomplish anything they want at Centenary. If you want to take a certain class, but the College doesn't offer it, you can organize an independent study. If you want a certain organization formed, get some signatures and petition the administration. There's a wonderful sense that anything you want to accomplish can be done. Some students complain of being bored at Centenary, but finding your place in the College requires work. Getting involved in an organization is one of the most rewarding things about Centenary, because you have the opportunity to re-create the organization and really leave your mark. Becoming involved at Centenary is essential. Most of the organizations are student-run, and the faculty and staff encourage student input. If you don't participate, the school and city may seem dull.

The most important thing about Centenary, though, is the quality of the academics. Although you may not have a huge faculty with a multitude of specialties, the teachers at Centenary work hard to make you learn. They give out their home numbers and encourage students to visit their office. Some of the teachers even take classes out for dinner at the end of the semester. There's an amazing sense of friendship between teachers and students. You never feel lost in the mass of students at Centenary. This casual atmosphere makes classes fun, exciting, and interesting. If you take full advantage of the organizations, classes, and teachers at Centenary, you will leave feeling confident and proud of the education you received.
