Mission Statement

Centenary is a selective liberal arts college offering undergraduate programs and a limited number of graduate programs in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences, which strengthen the foundation for students' personal lives and career goals. Students and faculty work together to build a community focused on ethical and intellectual development, respect and concern for human and spiritual values, and the joy of creativity and discovery. Consistent with its affiliation with the United Methodist Church, the College encourages a lifelong dedication not only to learning but also to serving others. It strives to overcome ignorance and intolerance; to examine ideas critically; to provide an understanding of the forces that have influenced the past, drive the present, and shape the future; and to cultivate integrity, intellectual and moral courage, responsibility, fairness, and compassion. In pursuit of these ideals, the College challenges its students throughout their education

    I'm going to be frank: coming from Southern California, I was unprepared for both the humid summers and the Siberian-esque winters. But once you get past the weather, Shreveport is an ideal college town. Much like the college itself, it's big enough for constant discovery but small enough to make you feel like you have a place.

    I personally am a fan of a small learning environment Centenary was the best choice, and the closest to home. You get to know everyone by their name, and meet people through either greek rush week, classes you take, or organizations you join. The staff, residence life, and all organizations always find a way to get students to meet each other and always make Centenary feel safe. I have never felt happier being at Centenary, even during mid-terms the atmosphere on Centenaries Campus has been beyond worth it.

    The small community allows you to really get to know people. I'm not an overly outward person, and I found it easy to make friends. Many of the students, and even the staff and faculty, are friendly toward each other. Clubs are usually small, allowing you to make great friends there, for school and for life.

    Because of the small campus and friendliness of everyone here, it is not hard to make friends quickly. There are so many activities to get involved in.

    We have 2 sororities on campus and 4 fraternities. Even if you aren't involved in Greek Life you will still be friends with people that are and the Student Life is great. There is always something to do and always activities to enjoy.
