4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are a variety of dorms to choose from, and they all offer a unique social experience. You are always interacting with people you know and meeting new people. All of the dorms have a place that one could do school work in, providing a quiet space with computers available. The cost is a little pricey, but the experience is pretty worth it.

Campus Housing: Go for the Newer Dorms – I stayed in the Cline dormitory at Centenary College and it just felt dirty and small. The air conditioner frequently went out, and we often had to deal with bugs and weird smells. But despite this, everyone was very friendly. I always found something to do while I was there. But if you're looking for a good dorm, go with one of the newer ones like James hall or Sexton.

Niche User

Campus Housing: The dorms are great. If you like to party and live in small rooms, stay in Cline. If you're a guy, you don't have much of a choice until you become a junior.

Niche User

Campus Housing: There are both coed and female dorms (sorry guys that want to live without women). Cline is where most newcomers that want a coed dorm will end up, and while the rooms are small, it has a nice atmosphere, and it's very social. This can get annoying at 4 a.m. when someone is playing music really loudly or drunkenly yelling throughout the dorm, but it's nice sometimes. The bathrooms in Cline were just redone a few years ago, so while you have eight people to a bathroom, you have two sinks, toilets, and showers instead of just one. James and Rotary are the nicest dorms. Rotary is mostly for upperclassmen, and it's something of an apartment-style room. The rooms are small there, but you have your own bathroom for yourself and your roommate, as well as a living room.

Niche User

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay, but the RAs seem to think they're running a summer camp. Prepare to have cutesy activities crammed down your throat every single week. James is top pick, since it's the only dorm with a kitchen.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The administration likes to promote the College as a community. While most of the time this results in activities that make you feel like you've stepped back into kindergarten or summer camp, living on campus is like having a huge family. There are five living areas at Centenary, and all of them have suite-style rooms, which means absolutely no hall bathrooms. Most students complain about Cline the most. It's noisy, dirty, the rooms are small, and there are eight people in a suite. Students chuck dorm items off the balcony and fill the courtyard fountain with soap and food coloring. If you're looking for the typical college party atmosphere, Cline is the place for you. If you're a guy, you'll probably have no choice, because the other dorms usually fill up with upperclassmen, and there are no all-male dorms.

Hardin is an all-girl dorm, while James Hall is coed and the best dorm to stay in if you want a good community atmosphere without too much noise. Rotary Hall is the best dorm on campus. The suites have a living area and two bedrooms, which each have a private bathroom. It's a nice dorm, but really quiet. Most students would advise living on campus because it's cheaper and easier. All of your classes are no more than a five- to 10-minute walk away, and students are always around if you need help with homework. Don't get discouraged if you hate your dorm your first year. Where you live is determined by your academic standing. The better your grades and the more hours you have, the more likely you will be able to live in the dorm you want.
