5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on this campus. I never feel like I am in any sort of danger, even when walking to my car at night. That kind of security is ideal for incoming freshman

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I wish that Centenary had more to offer its students in terms of scholarships and aid. There is nothing extra to apply or compete for. Everything you are granted is revealed to you when you renew or submit your financial aid information at the beginning of every school year.

College Junior

Athletics: I am not big on athletics, so I don't know much about the Athletic life on campus. However, the gym is very nice and accessible, even for non athlete students.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Centenary is right in the heart of Hackettstown, NJ. There are a seemingly endless number of options for food in the surrounding town. Whether your are looking for a nice restaurant, or a quick fast food place, everything you want is within reach. A car is necessary though. Some places are farther than walking distance

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus. I commute from home. However, I have visited some of the dorms that the campus has to offer, and while not being overly spacious or homey, they are adequately furnished and comfortable for students.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Centenary College is a very small school that is in the heart of Hackettstown, NJ. To my knowledge, they do not have an off campus housing option for students. Students are either residents on campus, or they commute to the school.

College Junior

Greek Life: We do not have greek life on campus. I believe there are fraternities and sororities, but they do not receive any special housing to my knowledge, and the school climate is not affected.

Overall Experience: So far, my time spent at Centenary has been some of the best time of my life. I transferred in from Sussex County Community College, where my experience was sub-par. At SCCC I was met with mediocre professors, and a lack of direction in my life. Since coming to Centenary, I can say that I have truly found my purpose and direction in life. The faculty here is amazing and engaging. Most of my professors have cared about me not only as a student, but as a person as well, and that speaks volumes. If I had to say one negative thing about the school, it's that they have a lot of little hidden monetary charges for things (Ex: A new id costs you 10$ every time. They don't even allow you one free replacement for the first lost ID.) Other than that, I have nothing else negative to say about my time here, and I would feel comfortable recommending it to any prospective or returning students.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different options including fast food and normal restaurants.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Its great because they are so close to school but it also sucks because you only get 5 meals a week at school for living off campus.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no great life because we don't have fraternities or sororities.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't done one at school but I did one a year ago and I didn't get paid even though I responsible for a lot and committed a ton of time during a week.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It is great to be in business because my professors have a lot of connections.

4 College Freshman

Academics: It can be tough at times with all of the writing we do but it is something I deal with very well. The workload s only a lot when it comes to presentations and essays. The facilities are very nice in my school.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was okay but coming from a family that lives pay check to pay check I should've received more aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I personally love living on campus because I can hangout with all of my friends whenever I want. The dorms are nice for freshman because they have a decent amount of space and high ceilings. Also we have a nice lounge with a pool table. The cost to live on campus is very expensive though.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Somethings are good, others aren't.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's what you make of it.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: If you like fast food, Hackettstown is a really good place to be. One of the main strips in Hackettstown has a ton of fast food resteraunts including McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's, IHOP, Applebees, Dairy Queen, Friendly's and more. Unfortunately there is no Taco Bell. There is also some really good non-chain restaraunts. Frank's Pizza, located near the Walmart is really great and has awesome prices, and Piggy's Deli is a little pricey but also makes really good food. Applebees accepts Cyclone dollars, and I know that the Rita's gives discounts to students as well. There is Walmart, Shoprite and a Weis Markets about a mile from the campus as well.

3 College Junior

Local Area: I've lived in Warren County all my life, and although I can't say there is much to do around here students definitely make the most out of it. Centenary isn't too far from the Rockaway Mall, which is nice in size and AMC theatre is close as well. Directly in Hackettstown is BowTie Cinemas which isn't the greatest theatre, but it's okay. There are a few bars in the area and if you follow Centenary Parties on Facebook they will keep you up to date on the night life. The school does it's best to keep activities going every night of the week, so if you're really bored there is almost always something to do. Campus safety and the surrounding town is great. The town's attitude towards students is great as well. I actually got pulled over in Hackettstown and when the officer saw my Centenary I.D. he let me go, no questions asked (speeding.) As for sports, there isn't a football team but the other campus teams are pretty popular, especially soccer, baseball and wrestling.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Centenary is a very small, and very safe campus. It is in a small town with an extremely low crime rating. There is no reason to be concerned about walking around campus alone at any time of the day or night and campus security is always available if you need them.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: Centenary is a small school, I would say that the students are generally average looking, some above average. The environment is very casual. The students who play sports seem to have the most active social lives in terms of parties.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The campus has a great balance of all kinds of people

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe on and off campus at all times.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is very easy to find off campus housing of any type from renting an entire home for a group or renting an apartment for one or two people. They entire area is safe, lots of parking, walking distance to every thing, school shopping etc. Short ride to campus of shopping for real apartments. The school only gets involved with on campus housing.
