Fall Open House

"Choosing a college requires finding the best fit, and we firmly believe that a visit to campus is the best indicator of whether a college is truly right for you," said Tommy Newton, Director of Admission. "Our Open House is comprehensive and will help prospective students fully engage in the Centenary Experience as soon as they step foot on campus."

Following a campus tour and financial aid discussion, parents and students will join a learning panel overview on academic programs, internships, collaborative research opportunities, and study abroad opportunities such as Centenary in Paris. Centenary in Paris is an August segment in which all first-year Centenary students in fall 2014 will begin their college experience with immersive study in Paris, France.

Prospective Centenary students and family members will then be invited to explore specific programs of interest during the Academic Department Fair. Students will also discover what life is like on campus and be introduced to learning into action as a core component of the Centenary experience during a lunch and student stories panel.

The afternoon will be devoted to auditions, a community social, meetings with athletic coaches, and a science circus. Centenary's annual physics and chemistry circus features nitrogen bombs, a bed of nails, and imploding barrels — proving science can be fun and accessible to all.

Centenary College is giving students the opportunity to do More in Four. Through immersive segments in August and May, students will be able to earn up to 40 credit hours each year. The ability to earn more credits in a year will give students more time to spend on activities like international study, global service, original research, or getting a jump start on graduate or professional studies — all while still completing a Bachelor's degree within four years.

Visit the campus during Open House and learn why Centenary is a Tier One National Liberal Arts College. High school or transfer students interested in attending can R.S.V.P. online. For more information, contact the Office of Admission at 800.234.4448 or 318.869.5131.
