3 College Junior

Nightlife: Not much going on. Small school and people are focused on school.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Bar Scene – The downtown area is about a 5 minute drive from campus. Lots of bars with lots of college kids from colleges from around the ares. There are 3 other colleges in the city so nightlife is good if you can afford it.

Niche User

Nightlife: Why leave the comfort of campus to drink when you've got a couple hundred friends lying around who could use a drink?

Niche User

Nightlife: The parties at the fraternity houses can be a blast. Most of them are open to the entire campus, if not for the whole night, at least part of it. The parties that the school puts on are always pretty boring. Because Centenary is a dry campus, the 21-year-olds don't even bother showing up.

Niche User

Nightlife: Centenary has a dry campus, but the fraternities, just across the street, have both registered and unregistered parties all the time. You don't have to be Greek to enjoy the houses, either. Otherwise, there are very, very, very few house parties because everyone lives on campus. There are few clubs (except Central Station, which is a gay bar that has a cool drag queen show but is otherwise considered kind of shady). There's a cluster of bars right next to the school where people over 21 hang out.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

In terms of entertainment, your options are limited, especially if you're under 21. Tourists visit Shreveport for one thing: the casinos. The bars and clubs are all 21-and-up. Underage students often travel an hour away simply to go to a teen club. The bars are all pretty small, but the atmosphere and bands often make up for tight conditions. Many students simply opt for hanging out at a frat party instead of heading to a bar. There are sometimes parties in students' houses and apartments. Although Shreveport can be boring, you can fill up your nights if you know the right people and places. There is a small but growing section of Shreveport youth that follow local bands religiously.

If you pay attention to fliers on campus, you'll realize there's a band playing nearly every weekend somewhere in Shreveport. The bands vary from heavy metal and punk to jazz and folk. Having fun in Shreveport is mainly about meeting people and learning where to go. Don't expect to go out and run into something exciting; Shreveport is much too small for fun to find you. Experiencing the Shreveport nightlife takes a bit of investigative work, but it's exciting when you find it.

What to Do if You're Not 21What's This?

Artspace

Artspace is an art gallery, and the ground floor of the building is filled with bright and colorful artwork. The basement houses artwork from several local artists. While the space is generally used for art, local bands often perform in the basement area. It has a really hip atmosphere and is a great place to go if you're looking to get into the art scene.
