I love Centenary. The academic aspect of the school is on par with that of larger universities, and the small campus makes it easy for students to feel right at home. There truly is a place for everybody here, and we are always ready to welcome our newest Cyclone to the family!
The facilities are well maintained, and even though some of the older buildings still need a little help, the overall campus is wonderful. Teachers are easily accessible through email if they can't be talked to during class or office hours. There is a wide variety of food, extracurricular activities, sports teams, and overall diversity on campus.
Centenary University is a great school for individuals who are business, equine, sports, or science majors. However, if you're leaning towards the humanities side, you may want to rethink because administation does not give you the same attention others may receive. Most of the professors are amazing and would go out of their way for the students regardless of the major. The small indiviualized class sizes also allow for you to create a small close family of friends on campus. Overall, the student and staff community of Centenary is great, but administration could step up their game.
The teachers are great, I love working with the professors and that is the main reason I decided to attend Centenary. Class sizes are amazing and the academic center is really good at accommodating learning disabilities. Otherwise, though, the school is not so good. I'm constantly fighting with admissions about course loads, wasted money, and other personal academic accommodations and the food is terrible but they won't let you opt out of the meal plan as a resident on campus. The upper class man apartments are really good housing but other than that is is mediocre at best.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Centenary University is 87%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
If I could go back in time and give my high school senior self a pep-talk preparing me for college life, I would tell myself to dorm on campus and get involved in sports and activities on campus. Although it is saving my family and me money by commuting, if I could do it over again I would dorm on campus, at least for freshman year, because that is the time when you make the most friends and meet the most people. I would get involved in sports on campus because that is also where you meet people and make friends. I also love sports and if I continued participating in them throughout college I would not have gained my freshman 15. Being involved in campus activities more so would have gotten me better acquainted with more people on campus who shared the same interests as me.
My classmates are energentic and outgoing, with great characters and knowledge.
I am an Equine Science Major. I want to concentrate more towards the medical aspect though the major deals with managing and training horses. Recently one of our professors and our veterinarian was able have a horse in which needed to be euthanised, donated. The veterinarian euthanised him in which we then used the cadaver and performed an necrospy. The necropsy was worth my thousand upon thousands of dollars of debt. Also my riding improved with the variety of school horses we have available.
A person who wants small class size, personal attention and a family atmosphere.
Someone who wants a big campus and alot to do on the weekends. Very boring.
The small class size is fantastic, and the campus is beautiful.
Centanary is unique in the way that it is a relatively small college where every professor is concerned for your well-being and they know who shows up to class and who doesn't. It is in the quaint town of Hackettstown in the mountains of New Jersey, and the campus is beautiful. I also like that the campus is small and I can walk anywhere within a matter of 10 minutes.
Centenary College is a warm, family oriented community. To some that environment can become frustrating if said student is looking for a bigger, less community school. In my eyes Centenary College is a perfect school for me because those are qualities I looked for when choosing what school I would like to attend. Centenary is a great school, but with every school you have to make sure it is what you.
