Office of Admission brings Centenary to Dallas

SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary's Office of Admission will host a Centenary Preview program in Dallas for prospective students on Saturday, February 21, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Hilton Park Cities. Same-day admittance to Centenary is available to those who qualify and bring transcripts, standardized test scores, and a recommendation letter. The event is free and open to students of all grades.


Centenary faculty, administrators, and students will be on hand to answer questions from prospective students and families. Participants will also enjoy a student panel of current students from the Dallas area discussing their experience. Two information sessions will offer information about the admission process and financial aid opportunities such as the Texas Equalization Grant that gives Texas residents the opportunity to qualify for a $5,000 a year award. A special visit scholarship will also be available.

"Seniors who attend this Centenary Preview will receive a $2,500 Visit Scholarship if they apply by February 21," said Associate Director for Admission Vjosa Alidema. "This is a great opportunity for those who have not yet had a chance to visit our beautiful campus, and is open to students of all grades."

Attendees will also learn about the Centenary Experience 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 2015 will begin their college experience with immersive study in Paris, France.

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 Hilton Park Cities 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. The hotel is located at 5954 Luther Lane, Dallas, Texas 75225. For more information, contact the Office of Admission at 718.594.4004.
