At Fucking Centenary
At Fucking Centenary,
the teachers are crazy and angry,
the students are tired and dead;
one teacher practices voodoo--
they say the campus creates dread.
The freshmen ambling around,
have no idea what there is to be found,
the curriculum vitae? Airy-fairy--
At Fucking Centenary.
At Fucking Centenary,
I would advise you, do not go--
the atmosphere there is ruthless--
for those of you not in the know.
The staff don't seem to care,
there's deadness everywhere,
I hate that college, really. Which?
Fucking Centenary.
At Fucking Centenary,
the schedule will leave you tired and bored.
The lectures and the lessons,
they'll all leave you floored.
People drink, but you don't hear about it.
The students hide it.
I have to say the rules aren't fair-y--
At Fucking Centenary.
At Fucking Centenary,
there is no lunch-time;
there is, let me finish this rhyme--
the breath is being sucked out of you, day by day.
Leaving you to feel hopeless, tired and gray.
At this college, there is just no remorse,
I don't mean to be contrary.
But this school doesn't deserve an apology--
It is Fucking Centenary!
It's the college that I hate,
because when you wake up late,
no one seems to care, you're just sat lying there,
and your roommate's gone, and with no-one to call upon,
you have no will to lift a finger,
the people around you put you through the ringer,
draining your emotional state, leaving you feeling bored and dreary--
That's what it is like,
At Fucking Centenary.
At Fucking Centenary,
people tend to ask me: "how is your day going?"
To which reply I look down and avoid my looking.
One of us Centenarians made it on the 'net--
which made the rest of us just about forget,
that being valedictorian here doesn't make a difference,
you just go through another day of intolerance.
At this college, there is no success story, when you go to
Fucking Centenary.
At Fucking Centenary,
nobody likes the work cut out for them.
People tend to complain and while away their sun.
And when the teacher hands them their "A,"
they don't celebrate or look at all gay.
Hard work is not it's own reward at Centenary--
just look at me, do I look like the cat who ate the canary?
The world is blind to this place scary--
Especially if you attend,
At Fucking Centenary.
At Fucking Centenary,
people give you grades you didn't ask for,
you can put in a big effort or you can do really poor.
That guy who does voodoo? I swear that he's evil.
And the other one, I don't know? He resembles a weevil?
I don't like this place, no not a bit,
I'd rather be done with it, just snuff it.
What makes the atmosphere here so creepy, scary?
I don't know!
At Fucking Centenary.
The sky is red, the grass is white--
at least that's what it looks like, you're in for a fight.
This is what it comes down to,
when the college is looking down you,
the air is hot like blood, and be wary:

At the ever-Fucking Centenary.
I have one more caveat for you.
When your prospective student puts down his pen,
to sign up for the school, make your amends.
It is not enough, to see the satisfied look on his face,
when you know of the evil that abounds in that place.
Please tell him not to go,
I tell you, thro' and thro':

If he goes to Centenary,
His life will be bored, empty, fo' sho'.
Please tell the masses,
that no one should go,
It's energetically dirty, nasty,
a bad show.
It's rapey, mean, throws dirt in your face,
it will leave you and your prospective a disgrace.
People there have just no care-y,When you're going to Fucking Centenary.

Question
I can only thank god that I wasQuite BrightOther
I can only thank god that I was able to transfer.
I started school at Centenary as a theatre major. The students were overworked, under-educated, loathed each other and ultimately paid for their choice in major with their self-esteem. Unfortunately this pattern is not exclusive to the theatre crowd. My experience with the students, including myself, is that we ultimately became lazy because the educational system is lax. Check out the transfer rate if you don't believe me. EVERYONE IS LEAVING. I have recently started school elsewhere and adore the new place, so I'm not just a stickler. Centenary will eat your money and throw you into the real world unprepared and slightly depressed.

Question
This is truly an "average" school.Accounting
This is truly an "average" school. That is not a bad thing. you will be challenged, but it won't be all that hard compared to higher end schools. Don't count on any support from them once you graduate. They are very nice people and God bless them for that. All I mean by "don't count on them", is they are poorly trained, do not live in reality, keep to the cocoon of their campus, try real hard, but lack in knowledge and real life experience. If you are looking for a four-year degree from an accredited school and that is is it, you have found it. But, if you are looking for a career building, academically challenging, real life preparing experience that gives you something to feel proud of when you go into the real world, do not go to Centenary College of Louisiana. They have no reputation . . . not bad, not good . . . simply NO reputation more than a few city blocks away in radius from the campus. Very few people in Shreveport, LA, much less the academic world or world of real jobs has ever heard of the school and that is very VERY frustrating. Thankfully they are at least accredited when a potential employer does a validation.
