    Centenary is a college where you can get involved from the first day you step upon campus. There are many opportunities for engagement with various student organizations, and its campus culture emphasizes training to become a leader in your respective field. It’s a community that stresses supportive collaboration rather than aggressive competition. Your professors encourage you to be the best that you can be, and they work closely with you to help you excel.
    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!
