I have been at Centenary for one semester and I absolutely love it! I am a commuter student so I thought it would be hard to make friends and transition from a community college, but to my surprise it has been so easy! The people that I have met so far have been some of the nicest people I have ever met. The school itself is small and my department is small, so it is easy to connect with people and professors. The professors in my department have been very helpful and friendly with everything and the professors do care about their students. They do want to help when you have a problem and do care about their students. There is a lot of work, but it actually teaches you and the lectures are very engaging due to the small class sizes. Even though I do live at home and commute, I do feel at home in this area and at this school.

Basically it's a 4 year Community College with smaller classes. No more, no less. The Profs. are sincere about their trade and are happy they're not inundated with 120 students per class. It's a safe campus. You get out of it what you put into it. It's the only 4 year college in Sussex, Warren and Hunterdon, Somerset Counties. It's off the beaten path, that's OK if you like getting away from NJ metropolis. Majors aren't diverse, but the college is good at teaching what they've got. People are friendly, not stressed out. It's a small Liberal Arts college. Not great, not bad.
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.
