Off-Campus Dining: Lots of fast food chains, I think there are about 3 restaurants in walking distance that are not fast food but they are either expensive, not very good, or have weird hours.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Most of the students here go to parties and do some sort of drinking and/or drugs and I have never heard of someone getting caught, even when the alcohol was in plain sight in a freshman dorm that is a dry hall.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is much more diverse than any other school I have attended and people seem to be generally accepting of that.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There is a shuttle that goes to and from the barn but the times are not the most practical.

Health & Safety: The town is extremely safe and there is security but the nurse's office is extremely difficult to get to, I couldn't imagine trying to get there if I were to get sick or have some sort of injury.

College Freshman

Athletics: Most of the teams on campus are not very good, but the equestrian team here is one of the best in the country.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't know, I don't really go to parties but I know that there are almost always parties at a couple of the houses that students live in off-campus and a new club just opened that a lot of people go to, although transportation is an issue for people who don't have cars

3 College Freshman

Computers: The school does supply computers, but you have to pay for them each semester, they are not included with tuition prices. There is one computer lab that I know of, it is in the library and there are 2 computers that can be used. Printing is free on campus and you get about 500 sheets of paper each semester. The network can be slow, although there is wireless access all around campus and at the equestrian center. Having a personal computer is extremely helpful as it can be difficult to find availability at the library. Having a printer is not completely necessary though, unless you want to print something in color.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The housing can be expensive, although it would most likely be less expensive to live with other people off campus than it would be to live on campus.

Transportation: Horrible. There's a train-station, but it only runs on the week-days, and the tickets are pricey. There are shuttles that go to and from random places like the malls probably once a month or so.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Small town. Finding spots are easy, and no one actually checks for the permits in the student lots.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It makes you sick, you're only allowed to eat three times a day, and it closes early every. single. day. The caf opens on the weekends at 11 am. If you're looking to eat after 7 pm on any given day, you have to pay extra.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: The classes are okay, but they're somewhat of a joke. If you're looking to transfer from this school - forget it - the credit system Centenary has is very different to any other schools, and the catalogue is horribly written. The school also has a pretty bad reputation to other colleges.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's a division III school, but the soccer players and lax bros still act like they are literally the kings of the school, and the Equine girls are literally horrible excuses for human beings - people go to the events but it's not exactly a great time.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, this school is full of ignorant, spoiled kids who all come from the same affluent backgrounds and don't even realize it. They are all extremely conservative and closed-minded, and bullying is a huge issue at this school, even in terms of sexual orientation and race, and especially in terms of economic status. The administration is horribly ineffective - the school spends most of the student's tuition on their radio advertisements. None of the students are happy at this school, and the over-all attitude is negative. The classes are not great, and the town it's in is especially horrible. DO. NOT. GO. HERE.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If you need the money (which most of the students who attend here, don't), you can get it pretty easily. They offer a pretty wide variety of scholarships and financial aid is pretty helpful.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Within driving distance, there's a dunkin donuts, a McDonalds, an Applebees, a WhiteCastle... I think there's even a Wendy's...

1 College Sophomore

Weather: Winter begins in October and doesn't really let up until the end of April. Seriously. It's freezing most of the school year.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The campus is pretty during the spring - but from the inside it's mostly run-down and in need of a lot of renovation. The gym, theatre, and dining area are newer and are the nicer parts of campus.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health center is literally horrible - most kids have horror stories about catching something or getting some kind of additional infection after going to visit the nurse. Safety is whatever - most of the fights happen off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The RA's will usually get you if you're being loud, but if you can keep whatever you're doing quiet, you'll be fine.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is one bar on the main street, and you'll see the same sad crowd there over and over again. There are the occasional house parties, but the school is so small and clique-y that you're most likely going to have to get a specific invitation, or risk getting kicked out. On top of that, the girls are rude enough to be in eighth grade, and the boys are not grown up enough to be pleasant to the girls.
