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.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There is not much to do for students, but it isn't a horrible town. The town's attitudes towards the college are normally negative.

1 College Sophomore

Local Area: Hackettstown, New Jersey, is possibly the most boring town in the country. It is a pathetic excuse for a college town - the main street is horribly sad and has a lot of weird, unnecessary businesses on it (like carpet cleaners and places where you can buy blinds). The town is empty and the cops are bored, so if there are ever any parties thrown, they're usually busted pretty quickly. There is a train station in Hackettstown, but it only runs on weekdays during strange hours, so forget it if you're trying to have a fun weekend in the city. Anything remotely fun is at least a 45 minute drive away, so you better have a car if you're planning on attending this school.

4 College Senior

Local Area: It's in a vibrant area, lots to do

2 College Freshman

Local Area: The other students were not friendly at all. It is a very small college so it was difficult to make friends or start a study group.
