Trey started college in Paris, France thanks to the one-of-a-kind Centenary in Paris program. He walked in the footsteps of African-American writers in Paris and explored questions of race and gender thanks to the "Paris Noir: Black America in the City of Light" course taught by Professors Dana Kress and Andia Augustin-Billy.

times Trey said "merci" (so polite!)
Trey is an economics major and is thinking about adding a minor in math. When he's not in class or on the golf course, he's most likely spending time with his brothers in Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity.
Starting college in Paris was amazing. I got to meet some of the best friends anyone could ask for. Honestly, if I hadn't gone to Paris, I probably would not be the same person I am today.
A member of the Gents golf team, Trey chose Centenary as the spot to continue his golf career because he knew he'd also get a great education. He also might be a budding comedian. Visit Centenary Athletics at gocentenary.com
