My School is a small family-oriented college, which is great,because everyone's knows everyone and no one ever has the chance to feel alone . No one is afraid to lend a helping hand or give advice . I love my school, because I am not a number , my professors know me by name and want me to succeed .

I just graduated from the Social Work program. The program is awesome! The Professors are all wonderful. The program is not easy, but it does prepare you to work in the field or to go on to Grad school. The Professors are very helpful with job leads before and after graduation. I would highly recommend anyone interested in Social Work to go to Centenary. I am 52 and was the oldest in my cohort, but I can honestly say everyone in my class graduated feeling confident going on to their next step. I had such a wonderful experience that I recommended to my son to go there and he will be going into the psycology program in the fall.

I have loved everything about my time at Centenary College. Because it is such a small school, I have formed meaningful and helpful relationships with all of my professors, and I genuinely believe that they care about me as an individual person, and celebrate in my successes right along with me. Though the tuition is a bit expensive, I would recommend this school to anyone without a second thought.
