4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love having small class sizes and being able to get to know all of my professors. They are difficult, but every professor wants the best for their students. If you aren't coming to class they'll contact you and ask why and if you're struggling they are more than willing to give you the help you need.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I honestly don't know much about it. I'm not even sure how active our alumni group is to be quite honest.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have DPS which is a 24/7 on campus police department that monitors parties and will give rides home to people so they don't have to walk alone. They also will help with whatever you need if you call them.

Campus Housing: It honestly just depends where you love on campus. My first two years I lived at Cline, which was not very clean and had a lot of heating and air conditioning problems. However, centenary overall has some of the biggest dorm rooms I have ever seen not to mention the awesome amenity of free laundry. I'm living in rotary this upcoming year which is on campus apartments and they are very nice. Price is good compared to other colleges in my opinion.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greeks at centenary definitely run the campus, but in a very positive manner. My sorority has various charity events that all of the student body can attend and it's always so much fun! Greek students are typically viewed as nice people who do a lot for the community. There is no Greek housing available at centenary, but we do have houses where we can hold rush events and meetings.

Athletics: As a golfer at Centenary I think athletics are all around pretty good, the only struggle we have is funding some better opportunities because our school is so small. Our school spirit is great especially at basketball and gymnastic events. Athletic facilities are pretty good, but our gymnastic and golf team has to practice off campus which is really inconvenient.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would choose Centenary over and over again because of the small class sizes and how much I am able to be involved. I play golf, am a student ambassador, and have an executive position in my sorority Zeta Tau Alpha. Not only am I able to be super involved, but I am also able to have the capability to do well academically. My school is also unique because I am able to get to know my teachers very well which will lead to great recommendations and further connections down the road.

Overall Experience: My school isn't the worst, but it also isn't the best. The living conditions could be improved as well as the food. The academics are a plus because the professors are willing to give you more of a personal approach to make sure you're grasping the concept. At the end of the day my major is what I'm there for and it happens to be a rather nice program so I can be content with that. Now there is a "more in 4" program, which is very much appreciated by all students allowing us to not overwork ourselves to stay on track. Our small campus can be a positive thing and a 'meh' thing. It allows you to get familiar with just about everyone on campus and like with the classrooms, there aren't massive class sizes, ranging from 3-25. I say 3 because I was in that class. If I could go back and change things I probably wouldn't choose my current school again, mainly because it was a rushed decision and I'd weigh my options a bit more.

Health & Safety: The number for DPS seems to be everywhere and it's great for if you don't have the number in your phone already.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a music major, most of my classes have to do with music and the music professors are really great!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It somewhat depends on what dorm you're living in. I live in the least expensive dorm at the moment and sometimes during the night time hours the freshmen will get roudy and run around screaming and you can hear it and it's annoying. I don't quite know what it's like in the other dorms, but it could be about the same.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although I am not involved in many things on campus, everyone is very friendly and I really enjoy being here!

5 College Freshman

Academics: I have learned more from this school than anywhere else. It's teaching me about my field and also how to be an adult. Very challenging but able to do. Nothing feels better than getting a great grade from hours of studying.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Foreign students and students of all kind attend here. No one judges it's very laid back and accepting.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Dps monitors campus all night and gives rides to people walking alone. Very safe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They are Challenging and the professors push you to be the best you can be. Questions are always open and no answer is wrong. No one cheats due to the honor code which I find very good. It helps students be independent.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone is going to grad school at Ivy League schools and if not, have the option to. Also everyone has acces to internships due to small community.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms may be smaller than the other but housing works with everyone for the best fit and the most comfortable stay. I truly enjoy my location and don't have to walk far for any classes or food.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Currently in a sorority here and it's a wonderful experience

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm a current athlete and have access to all everything I need during season

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Currently go here. Easy to learn. Very challenging and very involved. Professors know me personally and help me to succeed in every way. I experience many different classes along with going to Paris as modules. Experience is wonderful.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have a police department next to campus who are always walking around campus if anyone would need help, and they know how to handle difficult situations.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is great, you get to know a lot of people who really care about you and even the professors care about your performance in class. They make you feel they are interested in your success and will help you in anything they can.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of internships and volunteer work you can get involved into and base your future in those relationships you make in and outside of the school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is a good housing system, however you will sometimes have to deal with annoying neighbors, but besides that, people in the dorms are great, they are the first people that become your friends.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
