| school is not very selective in admissions, they will let anyone in and pass anyone... but it is a fun school with some really nice professors. No one I talk to knows of Centenary when I mention it, so you may feel you're wasting your time here if you want to get a high paying job out of college. It's a good school for easy grades though. |

| I really love this place, if you are looking for a small college to really work hard and do great then Centenary College is the college for you. I work my butt off everyday and it pays off, even though people dont know much about centenary college I would like you to know that this school is up and coming. They are bulidign a new center another caf, it is going to look great. The kids here are fine you just have to know what ones to hang out with, you can tell what kids are going to work hard and get good grades and the kids that came to college to drink and do bad in school. My classes are tough the teachers are tough but fair. If you work hard and they see your working hard that counts, tutors are always around they have a center under the caf full of tutors that work with students all day. I Hope more students check out this school and get a great education. |

| When I walked on to the campus I never got that college feel, I never once said to myself this is the place I want to go. I did have my reasons for going here however and I have now come to realize that I should have never chose a school based on those reasons. I can honestly say I came in with a positive attitude and tried to make the most of it, but after maybe about 2 or 3 weeks the flaws began to show themselves.|
For starters, my classes are virtually useless, the math I learned in Quantitative Literacy (the more advanced general education math course) was math that I learned in the latter part of middle school and first half of my freshman year in high school, my AFC course was all over the place and while I did find the journals somewhat useful I learned almost nothing about business, my other business class did give me a greater insight into Microsoft office and surprisingly made me a better presenter but failed again to teach me anything business related, as for my theater class, I did love my professor, but the class had almost no purpose, I had some fun but at the same time I questioned why I was even there.
Socially, this place is abysmal. In the beginning, Centenary did have little events here and there and they tried to get people involved, but slowly that all stopped. I signed up for anywhere from 7-10 clubs, only two got back to me, one never posted when the meetings were and the other dissolved, also out of all the clubs I signed up for 75% dissolved. Intramural's are very poorly run, you don't just sign up and get put on a team so you can meet new people like other schools, you need to create a team of 7 people and sign up for the sport, this method allows for very few intramural's to take place. Party's are practically non-existent, if you want to go to a party you need a shuttle to take you to a club that's like 30-40 minutes away and its really hard to drink because again its a club and you need to be 21 to purchase alcohol, the sport's teams also host party's, however if you're not apart of that team it can get very awkward and not to mention "criminal activity" takes place at these parties, so its better to stay away. Also everyone (I know 1 or 2 people who have never left) goes home on weekends and are student lounges are terrible.
I did like the idea of tutoring centers and would like my future school to posses this, but aside from that there aren't too many positives. The food is sub-par and the people are very immature and have a high school attitude. 120 people have already left (one semester only) and I will be joining them this semester.
