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.

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.

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