    A true gem in North Louisiana. My college is a small liberal arts college located in Shreveport. The college is small therefore there is a close relationship between students and with professors. Besides that academics there a many activities and sports that students can take part in. Nobody goes unnoticed at Centenary. I have had a wonderful freshman year!

    I adore Centenary. There are incredible opportunities for research, graduate/professional-level projects, and internships available for any student, including freshmen. The professors encourage students to create their own values by facilitating international opportunities (Centenary is the #1 undergrad college for international travel currently!) and inspiring connections between the students and the community. Every student participates in some form of community service, all freshman spend their first ten days of school in Paris, our pre-professional tracks have 80-100% acceptance rates, and nearly everything on campus is 100% student-led. Centenary is the place for people who want to do more.
    Centenary College was a great experience in my life. I graduated in 1980 and again in 1984. The value of the education at the time was great. Seems that the costs now are too high for what you receive. Having a college degree in a field that is in demand is key to success. Centenary reviewed the degrees it offered a few years ago. It eliminated the Education major, and with good merit. Why would someone want to pay $25k plus each year/semester to get a job as a teacher making $40k a year. Not cost effective. Also, a number of years ago Centenary went from a Division 1 school to Division 3. Many saw that as a mistake, and I agree. Enrollment has dropped because of this. However, it is still a good school overall.
