SHREVEPORT, LA — The Centenary Alumni Association will host crawfish boils in Shreveport-Bossier, Washington, DC, and Austin this summer. The crawfish boils are annual events that enable Ladies and Gents to meet fellow alumni and share a traditional Louisiana meal.

"The crawfish boil is a great, family-friendly event for alumni of all ages," said Saige Solomon, Director of Alumni & Family Relations. "This provides an opportunity for our local alumni to connect with one another and with the College in a fun, casual environment."
