4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Centenary College of Louisiana could not have been a better decision for me. The people are so welcoming and friendly. As a member of the choir I feel as though they are my family. My school is literally like a family. Everyone has seen and talked to everyone on campus at least once. No one is really a stranger.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone is very welcoming and very nice during pre-orientation events. Administrators were very understanding about my financial situation.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: As of recently , students aren't allowed to live off campus without a valid reason.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: I wouldn't describe Centenary as a "party school". The parties at the fraternity houses suck, and usually the same people are always there. Every once in a while someone will throw a party at the baseball/ soccer/ basketball house and those are always fun

5 College Junior

Administration: Professors are flexible and understanding. Some of my best friends are professors.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: As of recently it has gotten a lot better in the caf. Options for late night suck though for sure.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The school gives out tons of scholarships but I could use a ton more. It is expensive.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love burgers at Strawn's and they have good pie but I prefer the pie from George's Grill it is heavenly.

3 College Junior

Administration: It has gotten worst of the years in my opinion.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: There were not a lot available when I start in the Fall of 2012 but they have gotten more in recent years.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: Every year the increase the price of the meal plans under the guise that food service is improving and it has improved a little but not enough that it is worth the price I am paying

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: RHA and the RA's do a great job of creating a social atmosphere but the beds are bad for your back and a lot of things are lacking.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are several options around Centenary, including fast-food and diners. Unfortunately, there are not any student discounts available for Centenary students.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The school isn't overbearing on certain policies, however, they sometimes pick and choose if they want to break up the fun or let things slide under the radar.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Most of the parties here involve the same group of people every weekend. With the exception of a few big parties throughout the year, unless you are close friends with people in the fraternity then there are really no parties to attend.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The scholarships received are okay but if you go to financial aid to ask for more, the lady working there will only refer you to FastWeb and no more. Also, she's somewhat lazy at her job in that she does the bare minimum and will occasionally lie to you if you go for questions. For example, when asked if there are any work study jobs, she says she will put you on the waiting list when in fact, there is no waiting list.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The campus cafeteria will only cook good food if prospective students come to visit. Most of the time, it's half cooked food or gross mystery meat. Some of the cafeteria workers are lazy and/or mean, sometimes putting food up and closing fifteen to thirty minutes early. There are hardly any healthy options, with the exception of making your own salad (which can be gross if the lettuce has been left out all day) or making your own sandwich. The expedition line, where you watch them make your food, is all right at best but I personally, got food poisoning after watching them cook my shrimp for me. Overall, the meal plan is not worth what we are served and the service we get.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are all right to live on campus, they aren't the best but they aren't the worst either. For example, James Proper, the dorm I currently live in have doors that swing inwards and in some suites, the humidity can get so bad in the shower that mildew will build up in the bathroom. However, the social atmosphere of James makes up for the suites with its huge spacious lobby with couches and a television.

3 College Junior

Local Area: It is average but better for students over 21.

3 College Junior

Parking: There are not that many spots but it is overall convenient.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am a Greek and the social atmosphere isn't that special.

3 College Junior

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

3 College Junior

Weather: Only when it rains a lot.

4 College Junior

Administration: Its not strict at all.

3 College Junior

Majors: Yes. I believe I can find one.

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.
