Centenary College of Louisiana Reviews

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.

The Greeks at centenary definitely run the campus, but in a very positive manner. My sorority has various charity events that all of the student body can attend and it's always so much fun! Greek students are typically viewed as nice people who do a lot for the community. There is no Greek housing available at centenary, but we do have houses where we can hold rush events and meetings.
I absolutely loved my time here at Centenary College! I highly recommend any prospective student who is going through the college search to add Centenary to your list. Visit campus and you won't want to leave!
