2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It doesn't an outgoing city personality. There is nothing to do around the town. Some of the teachers are great others can be and should replaced. Overall just not for me personally. The campus is nice, everything on the campus seems as if it belongs.. just not me. Feel judge based on my race

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are really good public transportation everywhere. There is both a train station and a bus station to transport you any place you need. The housing can be either close or far from school there are houses very close to school and about 5 minutes away from campus are apartments.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places around the town that are just about 5 minutes away. There is main street which has a bunch of little restaurants and then there is Mountain Ave which has a lot of fast food restaurants including McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Applebees, Friendly's, and even more. The cost is usually good and the nearby Applebees takes cyclone dollars as well.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school is strict about some things but not others. They are usually strict in the beginning and usually get more leinant during the middle and end of the semester. RA's are usually good about visitation and don't really care. They are sometimes strict about alcohol use for the freshman. If they are on duty you get written up but if they are off duty they usually warn you and tell you to be careful because they don't want you to get in trouble.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are some parties and they are mostly at the same houses every time. You just have to know who to go to and where to look for them. They are usually easy to get into and are pretty fun too!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid was easy to get they give you a lot more money then most schools give. It was easy to also ask for more they might not always give it to you but its worth trying for and going and talking to the financial people.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The meals here are pretty good. There is definitely a variety of food to choose from each night. If you are picky it is sometimes hard to find a good meal but there is always the pizza, pasta, salad, and sandwich to choose from. If you miss dinner because of class and are just not hungry you can go to late night transfer. I think this is a really good idea because many people cant always go to class because of classes or they aren't hungry and if they go before 9 they can grab a meal without using your Tilly Bucks.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing here is definitely one of kind! The people you live with will make the experience well worth it because of the great friends that you make. The freshman dorms here are pretty nice the ceilings are really tall and seems like there is a lot of space. The bathrooms are usually clean Monday-Friday because of the cleaning services, Saturday-Sunday the bathrooms tend to get a little messy. The placement of the freshman dorms are not in the greatest spot because you have to walk a far distance to get food but its a great distance for classes! The social atmosphere is great many people leave there doors open and its friendly and fun and you make a lot of great friends. The food here is pretty decent it gets a little repetitive once in a while and if your a picky person like me its a little hard to find things sometimes but they definitely have a varied of foods. The amenities are pretty good we have a small campus so its not much but the gym and the weight room are pretty sufficient. The library is definitely a one of kind. Its split up into different sections and it is easy to find and get around. It is a great place to get work done and have a coffee at Greens Beans!

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.

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.

4 College Junior

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.

4 College Freshman

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

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

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.
