All the buildings on campus look exactly the same. The design is the typical red-brick-and-column look that so many colleges love. The College is planning to build another dorm, though the exact location and date of construction is a mystery to students. Most of the buildings are in decent condition, though the arts building is in desperate need of more space. Because the College only spans a city block, the facilities are limited to a small space. There are a few campus-owned buildings across the street. The Gold Dome, where all the basketball games and graduation ceremonies are held, is located directly across the street, as are the Department of Public Service (DPS) and the arts building.
While the small size of the campus is good for community and academics, the facilities suffer under the cramped conditions. There are only two places to eat on campus and one recreational area. Don't come to Centenary expecting to stop for a McGriddle on the way to class. What makes up for the small space is the fact that the campus is gorgeous. The people that keep up the grounds do an amazing job of keeping the campus clean and beautiful. There is a rose garden, with special, enhanced Centenary roses. Don't pick them! You'll get slapped with a $100 fine. Also, there is an arboretum with several trails. The admissions department tends to fill their booklets with blooming flowers, giving the impression that Centenary is a pink, tropical oasis. Unfortunately, the flowers only bloom for about two weeks in the spring. You'll definitely enjoy those two weeks, though.
